    Default A Strange Spec Car

    Had to de install a phone kit today from an 04 Vectra. Pulled up on the guys drive I thought it looked odd, mainly because it was white, I spotted a 3.2 V6 badge on the back but it only had SRI wheels on it & no other badges.
    Jumped inside & it only had a basic display above the radio like you get in an LS or Life, it had no cruise control & a rear interior light.
    Then the bit that really made me step back was it has no curtain airbags
    Also spotted on the speedo a sticker to certificate it had been calibrated.
    Putting all this together the guy reckons it's an explod car as it flys compared to his new 3.2 in a Signum. He's quite gutted actually.

    Was very clean & nice looking, shame it was let down by missing some of the good spec inside.

    Some of them were specced up for the police but never saw duty, with the age it sounds like one of them, I have seen them for sale with the same specs ...

    Yeah the guy didn't seem to think it had done service & going by how clean it was I doubt it too. Could of been promotional purpose.

    Might have been the one doing 153 down the M1 last year. The copper was testing it's abilities!

    Think he ended up in court and got off!

    It was actually reported as 154mph (in reality 138 but doesn't make as good headlines). And it was on the M54.

    Chap was prosecuted and found not guilty. CPS have appealed and he is to face a re-trial.

    Two kids had just nicked some pop two minutes earlier and they weren't interested in them, so i guess i was safe.
