'96 C20LET (blacktop) stock calibra from Belgrade, Serbia
« on: September 23, 2010, 09:45:15 AM »
Hi guys,

Here's my beauty :)

Interior:






Exterior:








And the engine bay:


You'll notice that some images are taken before I bought it (the ones with "PO" on license plates), but those are only 2 months old and caly hasn't changed since then :)

Except from Panasonic CD player and the amplifier in the trunk (with 2 speakers on the trunk cover board) everything else is in STOCK condition. No interior, exterior or engine modifications are done and I intend to keep it that way ;)

It has extra blinkers on the side because it was manufactured for the Italian market (and was later imported from Italy). The previous owner is an older gentleman who was driving this car only on highways and was maintaining it only in official Opel services..... and that's why it took me about a year and a half to convince him to sell the car to me :) :) :) Well, he was planing to leave the car to his 17 year old son who just got his driving license, so he realized after all that his son would have greater chances of surviving a 3rd world war than to drive a 204hp AWD calibra with zero experience :)

That's about it. Cheers.

Thanks ppl.

At this point, I'm just enjoying the ride as it is.... looking for some ideas in performance tuning & styling... but there's no rush at the moment. I'd like to finalize my ideas first as it's pretty damn easy to spoil the calibra look.

Who knows, maybe I'll keep her in the stock condition for the rest of my life :)

Actually, I'm looking for another smaller city car (preferably with TNG) for everyday usage..... and when I get it, then I'll maybe consider playing around w/ calibra.
