    Default How NOT To Mod A Vectra!

    Here they are, as you can see the roof held up quite well, it did deform and I have some shot's from inside to post as well, notice the mirror, and the seats the way they have been squashed up, but overall I'm impressed on how she resisted the Hun, VW,.

    Nice Curtains Ian... where did you get them from

    EDIT: You can see the shockwave that went through that interior... the front passenger airbag cover looks dislodged as well...

    I'm also really surprised that the nearside windows havent shattered ??

    As far as I know it was still attached after the crash, I found it like that up the yard, and one fog was out of the bumper as well

    Nice touch Steve

    As for the actually crash, I didn't have time to worry about anything, it literally was going one way one min, and facing in another direction straight after I thought I'd had a rear blowout and was trying to correct it up believe it or not, I remember the airbags going off and hitting the mirror, but other than that I was a bit lost for memory at the hospital

    Looks like you'll never be getting a ride in that one if your local in future


    Oh yeah, and the windscreen is intact, it breaks while it's parked up, and says hell no when the car is rammed

    I wanted ppl to see them, so they can have confidence that should this happen to them in a Vectra, they will stand a good chance of surviving, I'm so chuffed tbh I'm gonna e.mail Vx and tell them how well it stood up, and thank them for building a car that will stand up when required.
