I'm going to have to stop reading this fred after several pints and half a bottle of wine as I might* do something stupid.

Somewhere in the late 70s, there's a dive pub with two strips of carpet missing...

Yes this style of carpet hasn't been fashionable since the Shah of Iran was deposed.

I would dream of owning a 205 gti just to have red carpets , although the Roland Garos edition did have a nice shade of green

By the power of Jackie Stewart’s tartan underwear drawer. That looks cheap for a droop snout compared to the equivalent fords.

Oh how these are such a turn on, was it just a Viva hatch with a droopsnoot or did it have some mechanical tuning?

"The Sports Hatch limited edition did not share the uprated 2279cc slant four engine with the HP Firenza Droop Snoot model, but instead was fitted with the standard tune single carb 2279cc slant four engine and running gear of the Magnum. Also included in the standard specification was the famous "seven dial dash", Avon Safety Wheels and a distinctive paint finish in a then brand new Vauxhall "Extra Dark Wine" (only available otherwise on the brand new for 1976 VX 2300 GLS model) which was complemented with bright red striping and highlights. This model was always rare with 197 vehicles being completed and is now highly collectable. Vauxhall marketed this car as a "hatchback", since it was coming under increasing pressure from new European models such as the Golf that were hatchbacks. However, the Sportshatch shared its bodyshell with the Viva Estate (which was only ever produced in a two-door plus tailgate configuration)."

Thank you, sounded like it was quite pokey then, would be fascinated to see what a VX2300 GLS would look like in that colour though...

Absolutely diabolical photography skills, and needs some attention from the sparkly stick... but I've always had an odd fondness for these little grey imports. Manual box too, for extra points - most have the somewhat temperamental tiptronic transmission.

May be an image of car and outdoors

(It's just peeping through the gate, it's obviously shy.)

Have we had this one yet? An Accent Saloon is something I'm not entirely sure I knew existed.

Those prefacelift ones look so so so much better than the facelifted versions- there's one down the road serving as a courtesy car for the local MoT garage. It's hideous [ly excellent].

So nice innit. I went to have a look at this when it was for sale back in 2019 for considerably less cash, and walked away. I remember the sloppiest gear change of ever, some crustiness underneath at the back, some welding on the inner wings, some stuff like missing brake back plates that put me off. All could have been sorted now of course.

Could still be a pig in knickers, but Id be smitten enough by those pics top go and have a look, if I wasn't in Glasgow or the red atm.

Aside from the brown cracks where the B pillar meets the sill, it looks rather nice. I wonder what bits Chevronics have touched on it. Certainly the bumpers, by the looks of things.
