    Minxy and Autosparks Vxl it up! (56k warning)

    Andy and I took a trip to the Vauxhall Heritage Centre today with the VxlScc.
    Here are a few piccys

    A scary mk2


    A very spangly 888


    The last ever car to roll off the production line at Luton


    The Grandaddy of all Vauxhalls


    The new Astra Estate




    The new 3dr


    The VX220 VXR


    The Monaro VXR - Seriously yummy!!




    and finally....
    The Lightning. When Andy laid eyes on this he had to be restrained to prevent him reaching into his pants there and then

    One last photo.

    Andy was so chuffed with the balloon that he begged me to go and get for him.*

    Thanks for taking me along today Laura was well worth it especially for that lightening, is that gonna be a production car of he future

    As for the new Astra, the estate looks quite tasty

    And the Monaro VXR, paper work says 5.7 engine cover says 6.0 which is right?

    Anyway I have my balloon, vauxhall sweets and bugs for my dashboard now

    Scary piccy Andy - "look at his eyes" :EEK:

    The old monaro VXR was 5.7, but the new one (with bonnet nostrils) is 6.0.

    Those sweets - were they the 'toxic waste' ones

    Certainly is Pete - Ours was AYT 319B, I leant how to lap valves, re ring pistons and even rebuild a propshaft (remember them??) by the age of 5.

    I wish I still had that car - perfect for an 20XE
