Hi, I'm Mark and from West Yorkshire. Been wanting to build a kit for some time having previously enjoyed restoring and running 80's Vauxhalls. Was looking at Exocet or Sonic7 (the wife settled on Exocet). Haven't ordered yet but I did get my donor yesterday for the sum of £350. It looks too nice to start stripping yet so I may just enjoy it for a while until the MOT runs out in October. It's an NC 2.0l base spec car with 114k miles on the clock
It was a very good buy as a repairable, non structural, insurance total loss from Copart. I didn't expect to get it TBH. It has a wad of service invoices that were in the glove box and by the look of it someone has just spent nearly 1k having the whole clutch assembly and clutch replaced back in Apr this year. I've just replaced the damaged passenger wing on the car so it can be driven safely on the roads. Just waiting for the V5 now so I can tax it and insure it and then drive it for a few months until the MOT runs out.
