    Default New addition to the family

    Well a few months ago we bought a car for Mrs Gibbon as she was made redundant from her last job, and having a car only improved her chances of finding a new job (which she now has )

    So after a little searching we came across this little beauty. Its an 1998 Astra 1.6 16v Envoy automatic. had 85k miles 2 owners from new and service history upto 69K 10 months MOT

    All for the grand price of £485.

    Yes there are a few scrapes along the rear wheel arch and a little bit on the rear door, would benefit from a new front bumper as its a little smashed but nothing major.

    The auto change is absolute sweet. Just given it a service this last week, the full works. It needed a new heater control and a rear wiper arm, which i managed to pick up for £15 from the scrappy.

    Gave it a bit of a clean up this week whilst I've been off from work, Scrubs up pretty well i reckon.

    Anyway here she is, and a few with her brother and sister

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    Yeha the Bug's a gem, loving the Signum too, very envious of your family! Just the Astra to tart up a bit!
