More clues, we are struggling here. That seat does look very Vauxhall ish but I can't be sure.

So it's pre 98, available in more than one bodystyle, and has a 1.6 petrol engine.

Not a clue, those seats have thrown me.

I know we are known to go out of our way to get unusual and unloved cars but not even anyone on here would travel that far in a peasant wagon for one of those.

Mr Google has just rung me to tell me not a sport as the sport had the extending bit at the front. I forgot my wife had one once and advised me she had broken the seat when she found the extender. Extender being a technical term.

London achieved, food and coffee consumed. Only 5.5hrs to go (plus the return journey)...

I was planning to check out my stats, but the August 1998 issue of Car doesn't have my car in the list of "every new car" as it'd already been replaced by its successor...

 

 

To everyone guessing, the replacement to the car being collected was out by August 98.

Being that those used the Astra saloon rear lights, I like to call them Belmont Cabriolets.

 

Just like the Mk3 Escort Cabrio was in fact the Escort three-door estate convertible.

16hr round trip for an Astra.

Sixteen hours.

Was it worth it? Unsure yet, but it seems alright actually. I'll have a proper look tomorrow.
