    Default 4x4 Vectra?

    I recently had the car jacked up with all 4 wheels off the ground and I couldn't help thinking it looked kind of cool.

    Dont shoot me, but this got me wondering whether it would be possible to jack the suspension right up, offroad style, and whether big off road looking tyres could be fitted on the vectra?

    Any thoughts?

    Anybody fancy a photoshop of any good looking vectras on stilts lol?

    Well in my mind I need a step ladder to get in lol, cant see it ever happening, not unless the frontera shocks would fit in it or something simple

    Yeah I thought 4x4 sounded better than just saying I want my car off the road lol

    If you wanted to keep it all Vauxhall (well, a bit Isuzu), I'd get a Frontera, take the body off (just unbolts), leaving the chassis and running gear. Then take a Vectra and take off the engine/gearbox, suspension, steering etc, leaving just the shell and interior. Bolt it on top of the Frontera chassis. Mount the Frontera's pedals and dash somehow, see if the steering columns will join up, and there you go.

    I wouldn't drive it on the road though!
