Decided that it would be a wise idea to go through the huge box of paperwork that I had for my car.

After a quick sort out it looked like this :eek:





Complete MOT history :)



All sorted into categories



Then there were the rolling road printouts I've amassed over 4 years...


..alongwith a big selection of quarter mile slips :eek:


As boring as that job was, it's interesting to see what you've spent on a car over the course of its life. Thankfully I decided not to add all the receipts up though lmao :p

I've got the hand written sales receipt when the grandpa bought my car back in `79, it comes with the funky old michelin guide of hotels and breakdown services (mind you is that good that a new car comes with where to get breakdown help?).

add it up!!! it's like smokers adding up all their *** packets...erm, sort of

I'm thinking of adding mine up properly, wondering if £4k is enough for my car, leads you into the 'its an astra' vs 'i've spent £5k'.
lol

I've only had the car for nearly 4 years though ;)

What is annoying is that when you buy something cash ie. a £600 nitrous kit... I got no receipt :( same with the cage, bottle holders, and anything bling on my engine bay. Gotta be at least £3-4k worth of bits unaccounted for :(
