That is one very smart Carlton.  Very obvious that you have put some effort into it.  Hope mine looks that good when its fiinished.

Probably a grand.

Vauxhall are giving people a minimum of a grand trade in - sumat to do with reducing a carbon footprint, I think.
(Can't see how it reduces it myself, but that's another story!)

It'll end up at auction.  Unless one of the salesmen take a fancy to it, my mate used to buy loads of trade ins from the place he worked at.

Which dealership did it end up at?
