Bit of a thread hijack but it's from the same area as many of these.
I spotted this in the Horley Lidl car park, was amazing clean

Was creating much interest amongst other shoppers and I wasn't the only one getting a picture.

No data sadly as I'm not good at anything other than the DVLA reg check.

That Dolomite has had the same owner since 1979! I've never seen it before, although I've had some other finds in the Lidl car park.

That photo will be near Phil Blake's place - he's had about 20 of the things over the years.

The 1975-77 cars with the bigger tail clusters and bumper strips are much rarer. The only other difference was that they had electric rev counters. They were only available in Britain to special order by that time, and the list price of the final RHD car - YYR 22T, which still exists, but now SORN'd - was £8065.

Very difficult to find a Ro80 in Britain without him being involved in one way or another. He's owned / repaired practically all of the surviving cars!

This must have been the envy of the office car park when new, the top of the range model in a newly launched range.
Still working for a living, over 10k miles covered in the last year. Seen in Burgh Heath, Surrey


Photographed opposite what would have been French and Foxwell, the Vauxhall dealer in Burgh Heath.

Cav was registered in Luton so could have been VX management car

Was that where the Shell filling station is now, or where Cooper BMW is?

Goodness knows how many times this has been round the clock.  The mileage record for the last three years jumps about so much I think it's wrong, unless the van did 65,000 miles last year!
