    My dad just bought a pretty immaculate 2000 Volvo S40 with 40k on it from someone that had given up driving. He asked me to help him get rid of his old car - so here it is. Unfortunately I didn't have the time to either fix or get fixed the few things that were wrong with it:

    1993 Vauxhall Astra California 1.4l, 70k, FSH, MOT September - Spares or Repair | eBay

    Just need to beat the rather derisory £72 that WBAC offered or the £56 scrap value we were quoted...

    Nice ebay advert bud, seen loads of those around here in Leeds just plodding along. Where these the so called high torque engines?

    I'm not sure about the engine being high torque. I'm told the 1.4 came in multi point and single point injection versions. I think this one the single point (at least according to someone that recognised the engine bay from the photo).

    I've noticed a few chavs still driving around in the GSI version, they all looked wrecked.

    The 8 valve was seen as a bullet proof engine that could take abuse.
    The Astra gsi in a clean state is a highly sort after car with prices around £4.5k!
