Less then 3k in this as you see it. Radio works! cost $466 to get it aligned and get the new body module reprogrammed.... locks aren't working yet, but that's almost a given in my life (go cheap, buy twice).... that said, I'm sure I could get my money and then some out of it - however, I wanted a 'rental' - a car to loan, drive in sketchier places, it needed to be something fun and ride nicely. It does that in spades, that said... it ... is.... very .... slow.... yeah, I might have to do something about that.
body has 100k on it, engine 57k

Its called a giubo and c5s up ctsv anything with a tr6060 (camaro) etc uses it. Mercedes bmw etc have been using them since forever
It is my first Opel, so I imagine there's lots of stuff on this car that's different. My 06 GTO (Holden) didn't have this design - but that was a T56. It's a fun car
