hi just thought it was time to post pics of my kadett. not it top condition at the moment been doing alot of work on her after the show shes just been in so its a bit dirty and in need of a t-cut but have a look and tell me what u tink, be kind lol

theres a little still in the pipe lines for this car, engine bay needs tidying up hence no picture. and there is a new exhaust on its way.
ive realised something about modifing a car that you spend so much money on stuff u dont really like when you put it on the car but there are always bargins to be had, my alloys 50quid yes 50 quid i love ebay! the bloke was sick as a dog anyway have a look and ill post more as i progress
cheers

edit : ok pictures where getting on my tits so i made a site hosted on my site so have a look

looks absoloutley immaculate from what I can see! my mam had one a lot of years ago, it was an earlier model with black plastic seats and the body was bright orange! I remember that it went to the car graveyard when I was very young as the 1st and 4th gears stopped working :lmao:

Cool car ! My Papa bought a Kadett 4dr new in 1973 & kept it till he died in the late 90's. Was a good car to him & he really liked it. Was passed on to me to sell on after so I drove around in it for a while until the tax/MOT lapsed & was really impressed with it. Good to drive & relatively powered from only 1200cc's. Sold the short number plate (wish I'd kept it) & sold the car (sort of wish I'd kept it) to somebody from the Opel owners club. Underneath the car was totally rotten however, so I'm guessing it got broken for spares as its never seen the road again.

Hope yours does you proud!

ok another new picture showing the new exhaust its great not to big like a boy racer and not too small pee shooter style its also tunable so i get the rite pitch and performance i like, it helps the engine no end helping the flow of air you can feel it the pick up is much better and sound from its amazing and the k and n filter seems to like it too. the next plan is too put clear indicator lights on the front and blacked out ones on the back to mix them in with that panel

what you think?!
