The car that appears on your screen is badged as a Holden Astra. This car is a cosmetic twin to the Nissan Pulsar built in Australia and sold at the same time. With that in mind, I still enjoy the fact that it is somewhat of a Holden.
The car was previously owned by an elderly couple that had purchased it new. Although there are a few marks and dents not bad for a 21 year old car! Then someone sat on the front right fender, and left an ass dent and subsequent loss of paint!
The name FAWNTASTIC is derived from the colour of the car, a beautiful Holden fawn. Just look at the colour, it screams OLD MAN'S CAR.
At least I got rid of the old man seat covers and replaced them with these black jaquard ones. Although they do say Mitsubishi,they were expensive and from my old car anyway. There was a black metal grille that was on the inside of the rear glass that was very old man looking so I removed that as well.
NOTE the tiny exhaust tip. Exhaust is due for a serious upgrade! It hisses and rattles all the time, not cool. I'm thinking 2 inch replacement and a nice chrome tip.
This is a replacement instrument cluster. I don't have the Tachometer hooked up as yet so until then, a digital one is doing the honors.
Now for my bling. A sound active neon, nice, blue. It's awesome at night! Show Less
