my calibra failed its mot last week on welding so it was booked in today to be done.

to cut a long story short the entire inner wing on the drivers side had to be rebuilt and the rear of the floor pan had split wide open.

i have now scrapped the car and have to start all over again :(

I felt a disturbance in the force... like a distant Calibra dying alone in a metal graveyard :(

to be honest anything could have been fixed if it meant that much to you.

BUT, it was a 2litre 8v calibra.... why??? and why did vauxhall do it in the first place??
