Went up to the yard today to check on the cars. After the break in I wanted to just see for myself that everything was ok. I've not been up for a while and I was quite shocked to see the state of some of them.

Some pics of the GTE and my poor old SRI.



The guy who own the yard, is a bit of a prick at the best of times, said to me that I should scrap her because of the above rust on the roof, "its beyond repair" were his words (feck off knob cheese)


You would'nt believe the cavy used to be my pride and joy now..:shame:

I have told James, if the GTE is not started on in the next 3 weeks, I'm packing my bags....


I'd better buy a suitcase

I love the sound of a V8. I guess that's why I own one!

They both look like theyve been sitting unloved for years?!
The way you have spoken about the GTE in the past made me think it was mint

Looking at the roof of the GTE, I'd say your fellas gonna be doing an AWFUL lot of welding/filling/plating/patching throughout the rest of the shell.

I've never seen one that bad on the roof before TBH.

Mint thats a joke, still lover her though. I have been nagging James for 3 fecking years to sort her out. we've nearly split over the cars several times in the past. The thing is He wont let me take it anywhere else, he always wins:shame: .

But I now have the upper hand, and I will be stamping my feet this time..

Well our lives revolve around cars I suppose, and I let him spend a lot of money on his mk2 escort, providing he got on with the astra. He does things in his own time, and can be extremely frustrating. Its not the car itself that would split us up, more the broken promises I've heard for the last few years:down:

He doesn't fulfil promises he's made to get his own way?

Not being funny, but it doesnt look like it!
It looks like theyve been parked up and left to rot :(
If it surprised you to see the GTE looking like that, when did you last see it?!

Very true, and if your life was around cars, certainly not these two!!! I know what your saying about loving your old car and wanting to keep it, do her back up again but personally, i would let her go and move on. Cost you a lot on that roof, holes in it!!!!!!!!!!

You'd get some out of the cars for parts of course
