  1. I will be up for lending a hand with this too. When you know which weekend will be best, let me know and I will try to pop down.
  2. Quite a few more outside through. A pretty big selection of Cavaliers of all varieties and ages Monaro pair, including a 6.0 VXR Hotter Astra variants, from the Mk1 to the Mk4 Less sporty, but a nice one for the collection Manta and Cresta parked next to each other Collection of Novas Two Ventoras With a Viva and Victor Two door Chevette Pre-facelift Omega CDX a rather tidy Vectra CDX and Supertouring
  3. Although I went to the Vauxhall Heritage Centre open day on Sunday, this is the first chance I have had to upload the pictures. Amazed I took so many in the space of two hours (there is a lot there though), starting with this Chevette duo. Three generations of Viva Alongside Victors through the years And Vauxhall's more recent family offerings (including the last Vectra B made in Luton) the Mk1 Cavalier won the award for best interior though The be fair, the Omega was overshadowed in this picture Both were beside these Crestas Before I went I'd never seen a Wyvern before. Glad I did in the metal though. Vauxhall coupes from the Firenza to the Tigra Vauxhall's more radically designed concepts And the final Frontera produced
  4. Now that is a quality motor. Completely different from the S90, but strangely appealing in its own way. Well swapped. The Heritage Collection is pretty good; I was there earlier and really enjoyed taking a look around. May be a bit different now as the day has gone on, but there were some interesting cars in the carpark too, so be sure to take a look around there too.
  5. Unfortunately I am working that day, so won't be able to make it. A shame, as a few interesting things are going through. The Mk2 Astra and 505 both look like interesting lots.
  6. Have a bump up to the top. Looks like a very good price for such a decent condition, low mileage, well sorted car.
  7. Well done on another roffle win. Have you found the curry hook in the front yet (brilliant idea that should have caught on in any reasonable world)?
  8. Have a complementary bump. It is a very nice looking thing, drives smoothly and a sufficient amount of wood* trim to keep even me happy. At this price it is a bargain.
  9. To provide a belated update, New POD was on the money with the Omega Owners club suggestion. A pretty much identical hose (aside from the completely different part number) was found after a bit of digging around the forum, ordered and fitted a few months ago. It was great to complete a job which made a good deal of difference in less than ten minutes. Since then, it has had the cambelt, auto box fluid, front suspension arms and brake disks and pads changed. One area which was letting the whole car down was the rear wheel arches. Like most Omegas, this had started to go a bit ripe, along with the bottom of the rear passenger door on the drivers side. Getting it booked in around here was proving to be difficult. Thankfully PKB thought we would be able to make a good shot of it, so he kindly invited me to come along to see what could be done. He also offered to help out with taking care of the nice scratch a kind local resident left all the way down the passenger side the other week. Being a 90s Vauxhall, there was a fair bit that came off. And rust stuck onto plastic. However we finally got down to good metal (more than I thought would be left on the arches considering the state they were in). And then treated it Applied a little smidge of filler and red oxide Followed by some grey primer and some Star Silver paint. Which a fly kindly flew right into (the bastard) Overall, I am very pleased with the result, especially when compared to the condition it was in this morning. I cannot thank Ken enough for the help today. It should hold the rust back for a bit longer (at which point it will probably be time for some new arches to go in).
  10. Absolutely top work from both you and Alf on getting this MOT'd and out for the run.
  11. Mk1 Mondeo LX in urgent need of a wheel trim transplant. A few issues, but a £50 start price for the ballsy. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Mondeo-MK1/273830613288?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20140122125356%26meid%3D1214427dfcf1482cbf5e11ccb022718c%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D233211616564%26itm%3D273830613288&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
  12. Henley blue 400 with navy blue interior. All that would be needed is some plastic trim restorer and this would be perfect. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1991-Rover-400-1-4-414-16v-SLi-4dr/254215676582?hash=item3b306f62a6:g:DWgAAOSw-Btcx9~S
  13. Meets the chrome grille requirement, but lack of picnic tables means this doesn't quite cut the mustard. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rove-216-EFi-vanden-plas-pre-face-lift-model1986-barn-find-classic-car-65-k/333177474167?hash=item4d92eccc77:g:knsAAOSwuJlcyIkg
  14. Very specific starting price of exactly £566.92 for this Camry. No idea of the reasoning behind it, but it looks as much like the reliable method of transportation that you would expect a 90s Toyota to look like. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/toyota-camry-2-2-Lovely-retro-classic/202664515966?hash=item2f2fbf197e:g:0hYAAOSwoB5cxcRo
  15. One day left on the auction for this N-reg Vectra. Rep spec 1.8 LS with only 38k on the clock and MOT until next April. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/vauxhall-vectra/223496088770?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Db79f397fc91048d293f9aee134e89c54%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D11%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D113708162436%26itm%3D223496088770&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Ac3f61f65-6d32-11e9-aeb2-74dbd1808a8e|parentrq%3A7ae5cbdd16a0ad483cf73f6efffb943e|iid%3A1
