Ok, rescued this Vauxhall Viva. Its way beyond salvageable.

However, I\'m open to suggestions as I\'m getting a little stuck on this disaster.

You could try gluing on a roof from another car or making one and make it look like a squashed car from a crusher.

I\'m playing with an idea and I destroyed the car further.

A novelty came to mind of car boots being converted into lounge suites. So now looking thru my parts for a suitable sofa for the broken off boot section.

The chassis I could sell on I suppose. Needs a bit of vinegar treatment and a bit of straightening.

Would post a picture but Dad borrowed my camera. For some reason he\'s fascinated with the DVD-RW part of the camera. Old ppl are like kids.
