Hi folks. I was a member on AllCorsa for years until it got sold off, since then I've been on TheCorsa. Same username as here on both sites so some of you might know me.

Motoring history - I've had a few cars from Mk1 Escort, Triumph 1500, the obligatory Mini of course, A35, Mk 1 Fiesta, Allegro, Yaris, Cavalier Mk 2 & Mk 3, Vectra B, Astra H, Corsa B, Viva HC.

I've messed about with cars for years, starting from when I worked in a backstreet garage whilst I was at school in the 70's.

Other toys include a couple of sailing dinghies (Laser & Graduate) and my Suzuki Van Van.

I have recently been given this - one lady owner, 37k, serviced annually with usually less than 100 miles between services


Not too many of them around with that kind of mileage on it. It is currently in a white 5 door 1993 Corsa with a mint interior and a rather cosmetically challenged exterior following a few encounters with a gatepost. I am exploring what to do with it. It's been garaged all it's life so there's none of the usual rot they suffer from, just needs a couple of small patches on the rear end of the sills for the MOT.

And because pictures are better than words, my job for today....
