Back to the present, try and contain your excitement* for the Vauxhall Grandstand Grandland;

 

https://static.independent.co.uk/s3fs-pu...

The Vauxhall Grandad, named after its target audience. I know they exist but still don't think I've actually seen one. Or maybe I have but I just didn't notice as it's not exactly distinctive.


Always look on the Shite side of life

 

1999 Vauxhall Zafira - shit or shite?

1978 Austin Maxi - proper shite or proper classic?

1972 Renault 6 - genuine garage find

I knew it was a Seat because of the big badge on the back, had to google which one.  Apparently a Leon estate, sometimes seems to be an Exeo?  Anyway, the one I spotted today was in this fabulous turquoise metallic with not-stupid wheels and just looked really nice.  It's one of those cars where all the photographs make it look like a knock-off Audi while in person it's quite a smart bit of design.  Anway, I didn't know they existed until today, so here we are.

Its a leon estate, my daughter has a 15 plate one the exact colour as that one. It had those wheels o it until I wrote off my leon so she took my nicer 17" wheels which had new tyres on and those wheels went away on my write off.

An Exeo is a rebadged Audi A4 with a different front end.

Exactly the same.

 

Generally obtained by sponging morons cashing in on grandmas/fraudulently obtained Motability allowance.

 

I work at an all Vauxhalls are Shit dealership, and we have a queue of the above waiting for Grandlands.

Yes we've had it before and I made a wisecrack along the lines of 'in 10 years time it'll be called the Poundland'.

 

As it has made a re-appearance may I be permitted to make the following wisecrack?

 

Grandland?

I've just been reading about a W126 500SEL that a Japanese artist bought and created an estate out of.

I had no idea that these existed until I saw this photo in the Jury Service thread.

 

Girlfriend's dad had a Taunus though.  He really wanted a Mustang but could never have got away with it.

Ironically he was the town's Ford dealer until he sold the business to his brother.
