The brown ring of quality.

is it some kind of spaceship?


#48

I’m loving those bonnet creases and side chrome inserts, just looks blistering stood still :+1:


#49

They so comfy


#50

Yep, I’d read it like this…

fuck off

had a lovely one like that once and my wife was involved in a bump that caved in the back , ashamed to say i was livid and was not a pleasant person for a while !! actually the garage repair man told me off for that

had several red astra`s . one was ex rental and it went on for years , couple of years back i spotted it again still going

In an Astra apparently. Of course, to those of us in the know, the only surprise is that an Astra hasn’t been clocked this fast before…

That’s what happens when you buy a car that is far beyond your driving talent…

Complete with bucket for those cheek clenching moments.

Given the incredible build quality and legendary indestructibility of the Astra most of that damage looks superficial and easily buffed out. A refill of windscreen wiper reservoir and a hoover of the carpets and the Astra owner would be home in a jiffy.

The tank is clearly a write off however. A lesson in automotive investment for the unwary.


#57

Yes, there’s quite a few high performance variants now.

If only Cyril Fletcher was still around, what a superb ’ Ode to the Astra ’ he would pen.
