Vauxhall Viva cold start
Looking through an old hard drive I found this old video of my 1976 Viva E. Takes me back! Guess I never got around to posting it.... Its running terribly in the video as the distributor had worn its centre bearing and was causing all sorts of ignition issues. I replaced that, sorted out the timing so it didn't overheat and enjoyed it for a while. The horrendous tapping noise wasn't valve clearances (they were set many times, by many different folks who all swore blind they could shut it up). Never found the cause as I swapped in a rebuilt good lump which gave the car new life! Previous engine must of been down 20bhp! This car is now awaiting a restoration in my yard while I do other projects. Miss the old girl though.

An Original HB Vauxhall Viva De Luxe with Just 49,294 Miles and Three Owners - SOLD!
SOLD - SIMILAR REQUIRED CALL 01733 425140 An original HB Vauxhall Viva de Luxe with just 49,294 miles and three owners. EQUIPMENT Chrome bumpers, chrome window trim, Deluxe rear badge, opening ventipanes, twin visors, front door courtesy switches, dash-top ashtray, rear ashtrays, aluminium kick plates, deep-cowled safety padded facia, full-width parcel shelf, glovebox, adjustable face-level ventilation, heater with two speed fan, screen wash, headlamp flasher, oil pressure warning light. Dealer fitted options; chrome wing-mirror, locking fuel cap. EXTERIOR This vehicle still retains its wonderful period colour of Pampas Green, (Code 1GN) and suits the sleek smart styling the HB model offers. Paint preservation touch-ups by the previous keeper are noticeable but reveal the honest nature of the car and the fact that all the panels are factory original with no weld repairs. Surprisingly no dents or dings are evident but the paint has worn thin in areas. Replacement front and rear window rubbers have been fitted but the side window rubber trim is original and slightly perished. The chrome bumpers have a mirror shine and model badges remain intact. A remarkably preserved example. INTERIOR The upholstery in this unrestored Viva is finished in Fern Green Vynide, (Code U597) and matches the green seat belts, green dash, green door cards and green edged tailored carpets! The seats and door cards are immaculate and all the interior controls and gauges function correctly. The carpeting has lost its green dye and is now a straw colour and the 'C' pillar roof trim is damaged. The woven draft excluding door strip on the driver's door has lost shape in one small section. Standard Vauxhall de Luxe trim as it left the factory. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION A 4 cylinder 1159cc engine producing 56.2bhp at 5400rpm hums along perfectly having covered such few miles. The inclined valves operated by short pushrods and rockers enables swift progress. The 4-speed gearbox offers neat, stubby shifts that work like a switch. Marvellous. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Pressed steel wheels have perfect tri-nickel chrome plated steel hubcaps and are shod in quality new 155/80 R12 tyres. Hydraulic 8 inch drum brakes all round with two leading shoes at the front offer assured stopping power with a progressive feel. HISTORY FILE Supplied new by Vauxhall agents, Sharpes Garage on the 15th April 1969 to Mr Slater who remained the first owner for 23 years. Sold to the second long term custodian and owner for 15 years, Mrs Spence, who continued to enjoy the car for weekend outings before Vauxhall enthusiast Mr Walter purchased the car in 2007. This car has remained in the Nottingham area all with all three owners living within a 15 mile radius. A mass of ReVival publications, (The Magazine for Vauxhall Viva Owners), show the passion and interest previous owners have for the marque. A truly wonderful, low mileage, low owner example.

SOLD - SIMILAR REQUIRED PLEASE CALL 01733 425140 An incredible HC Vauxhall Viva de Luxe Estate with just one owner from new and 39,941 miles.

Factory fitted options; deep pile carpeting. Aftermarket accessory; period Sharp radio cassette. EXTERIOR This wonderfully preserved example still retains its original colour of Monaco White (code 7WH). The Vauxhall Magic Mirror Paint finish is remarkably fresh and boasts a pure shine throughout. There are minor areas where the paint has been touched in by the only owner at a novice level, and there is evidence of minor paint lift to the lower sections of the rear wheel arches. The original body panels with uniform gaps are straight and free from corrosion, although there is a small shallow dent in the offside front wing approximately two inches long. All factory fit glass, lights and trim are intact and in excellent order, including even the gold side pin stripes. The chrome bumpers have a beautiful mirror shine. Absolutely original and wonderfully unspoilt. INTERIOR The upholstery in this unrestored Viva is finished in Oynx Vynide, (Code 1X3) with matching door cards and deep pile carpets. The seats, door cards and headlining are truly immaculate and a credit to the only owners incredible care for his beloved car. All the interior controls and gauges incorporated in the perfect dashboard function correctly. The Viva de Luxe standard specification included rubber floor coverings, however the owner specified upgrade carpeting from new, which has remained wonderfully free from wear and sun damage. The carpet has become loose fitting in some inconspicuous areas. The cavernous luggage area portrays very light usage and the protective aluminium non-tarnish rubbing strips are like new. A truly factory fresh interior, simply marvellous and true to the manufacturers intentions. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The HC Viva Estate model featured as standard a 1256cc engine based on the well proven 1159cc four cylinder unit used in previous models. The power output is 53bhp with a top speed of 84mph. The engine fires up instantly at the turn of the key and is delightfully quiet yet eager. Progress is adequately swift and the 4-speed all-synchro gearbox offers neat, stubby shifts that work like a switch. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The original pressed steel wheels have tri-nickel chrome plated steel hubcaps in fantastic condition and are shod in 155/80 R13 tyres with excellent tread all round. Hydraulic 8 inch drum brakes with tandem master cylinder and two leading shoes at the front offer assured stopping power with a progressive feel. HISTORY FILE The history of this wonderful example is a story in itself, and gives an insight as to just how the car has remained in such incredible condition. Registered new on 5th February 1973, this vehicle has only ever had one devoted owner, Mr Eric Gull. Even more remarkable is the fact that the car has been kept at the same address in central London for its entire life, and stored in an underground car park beneath a large high rise housing complex. This must surely explain how the interior has remained so utterly free from sun damage, and how the structure of the car is so well preserved. Mr Gull recently took the difficult decision to part with his pride and joy due to his advancing years bringing his driving career to an end. KGF Classic Cars were thoroughly privileged and humbled upon meeting Mr Gull, and are proud to offer this astonishing vehicle to a lucky new owner. A great car with a brilliant history.

New Vauxhall Mokka 2013 - Which? Car first drive
This is the first time that Vauxhall has launched a compact 4x4. No doubt inspired by the success of the Nissan Juke and the predicted continuing rise in popularity of supermini-sized SUVs, the Mokka arrives as a strong contender. At 4278mm long, it's actually quite a lot bigger than the Juke. In fact it's just a couple of inches shorter than the Qashqai, so it sits between these two cars in the marketplace. Designed in Europe, but actually built in Korea, the Mokka is available in front-wheel drive form as well as four-wheel drive, but is clearly more like a traditional SUV than the Nissan Juke, which is nominally marketed as a regular supermini.

These are the first drive-by videos I have taken since the car became fully road legal. We took the car for a spin up the Dashwood hills near Blenheim, NZ. It goes pretty well but never seems as quick when watching it on video.
