Default Bye Bye Astra

It's the last week for my 2008 Astra as a daily driver. I just bought a replacement car and this one will be put out to pasture. Still not sure what I am going to do with it but I am tempted to turn it into a ice racer for local series that happens here. If anyone is looking for a front wheel bearing I have an SKF unit brand new in the box that I bought from RockAuto with intentions of changing it and never got around to it. I'm in Canada so if you price one out here you know they are expensive. I'll let it go for $100 Canadian. Buyer pays shipping

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Bye Bye Astra

kind of sad cause I have had this car since new and it has never left me stranded. I kept it after buying the Q50 thinking I would have time to go ice racing this winter but with the new job, it does not look like its going to happen. Before I send it off to Kenny U-Pull, anyone here interested? (I would rather scrap it than have to deal with kijijidiots )

2008 Saturn Astra, 142,400 KM 5 speed, Solid car, no rust. There is a check engine light on it but it can disappear if you know how. What I know that it needs is a windshield and front wheel bearing (included with the car). probably end links and or tie rods. Extra set of steel wheels with to the wearbars Michelin's X-ice included. Battery is 1.5 years old on it brakes all around in April 2016, the timing belt done on it last year (Sept 2016). new motomaster SE3 tires may 2016 (maybe 20,000 on them)

Car is in driveable, plated and insured in Ottawa
