1982 Vauxhall AstraReview
My First Car (still Own It ) — bought this as my first car and learnt to drive in it, it evolved from a standard mk1 astra gl 1300s to a full blown rally car, excellent acceleration, handles like it's on rails, twin webber 40dcoe's sound like heaven, very throaty, peter lloyd rallying exhaust, all in all a kickass car-love it !!!!!!!!!!!
