    TV Live - The Rare and Endangered Display

    Afternoon folks

    I've been set the slightly daunting task of trying to secure as many endangered and rare Vauxhalls as possible for a special display at TV Live on the 7th of August at Castle Combe. So far I've come up with a short (?) list of cars that we'd like, now begins the task of actually finding them and getting them to Castle Combe.

    So, if you have or you know of anybody who has any of the following in as near standard specification as humanly possible and who can be at Castle Combe bright and early on the 7th of August then please get in touch.

    Incidentally, if there are other cars out there that you feel should be included in this display and meet the above criteria, again, get in touch.

    The list so far...

    Corsa GSi 16v (sourced and confirmed)

    Mk2 Astra GTE 16v

    Cavalier turbo

    Calibra turbo

    Belmont SR or SRi

    Nova GSi

    Lotus Carlton

    Opel GT

    Opel Ascona

    Mk2 Cavalier SRi 130 – in any bodystyle

    Mk3 Cavalier SRi – 8v or 16v in any bodystyle

    Opel Monza

    Carlton GSi 3000 – 12v or 24v

    Senator 24v

    Mk3 Cavalier V6 – Any trim spec and bodystyle

    Mk3 Cavalier GSi2000

    Omega MV6 – facelift version and in Elite or Sport spec

    VX220 Lightening

    Calibra DTM – 16v, V6 or turbo

    Mk1 Astra GTE

    Nova SR or SRi

    Vectra GSi estate – pre or post facelift

    Viva GT

    Chevette HS or HSR

    Mk3 Astra convertible

    Mk3 Astra GSi – Redtop or ecotec

    Magnum 2300

    Firenza droopsnoot

    Viva HB 2000GT

    Mk4 Astra 888 coupe

    Mk5 Astra 888


    Corsa C SRi

    Carlton Diamond estate

    Vectra ST200


    Thanks in advance

    Dave

    Hmmm, cheers for moving this. I felt it was more relevant in the general Astra section as there may be owners out there who hadn't considered going to the show, but could possibly help out...

    As for what can be considered rare or endangered, the list isn't really up for discussion however if there are cars that you feel should be included then we'd like to hear your suggestions.

    And yes, I would considered the Mk3 convertable rare, they were sold in minimal numbers and these days are few and far between... I can't remember the last time I saw one on good, standard condition. But as for matey with three, if he won't bring one then not much use I'm afraid.

    Same could be extended to the Mk2 as well.

    Cheers

    Dougie is on the case over on Mk1 Astra as we speak so hopefully the guys there can provide a few good examples or assorted performance models.

    The Corsa SRi is being classed as rare as most people insist on buying a 1.2 and sticking crap to them, there aren't many standard, immaculate SRi's doing the shows this year.

    The list so far is just to get thinsg going, we have things like the Astra Champion, Manta, Bathurst S and so on to add... the list was intended to give people a taste of what we are looking for.

    Still no offers of a standard, mint MK1 GTE and SR, Mk2 GTE or Champion, Mk3 Convertable or GSi, Astra SRi turbo, Astra 888 Coupe or an Astra Mk5 888...
