Mals disaster thread.

Introduction

As some of you may have heard, I've aquired an automobile for the grand sum of nada. Hats off to my mate Joe for the car, I owe him a pint at the very least :)

The car in question is an Opel Vectra 1.6 ecotec. We previously got a Corsa but that isnt worth mentioning. Although it holds the record for the most gutless car I've ever driven (y)

This particular car however by contrast is much superior. Its had a recent engine service including a timing belt and water pump change. It runs with no rattles or smoke, rather smooth :) it certainly has poke to match too :devil:

So whats wrong with it? My mate got it with no tax book, the previous owner had it for years then emigrated for a bit. Went to tax it and discovered the absence of a book. So it got parked up for 2 years. Joe gets it for free but its practically un-drivable and would cost a fortune to sort. So he offered it to me and I brought it away yesterday :) Plus underneath its going crusty...

So enough about the background of the car, whats the plan for it? Well, I'm its final owner and it will be going to the graveyard in due time :( but lets see what I can do wit it before that happens ;)

Anyways some pics of said car :)
