Austin Metro Review (Top Gear 1991)
Quentin Wilson gives a review of the first generation Austin Metro (1980 to
1990 models), pointing out it's short comings, such as the rust issues and
the somewhat unreliable Hydragas suspension and the A-Series engine. As a
result, these cars are now as rare as hen's teeth.

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.
1993 vauxhall cavalier 1.7TD trying to start (PART 2)
1993 vauxhall cavalier 1.7TD trying to start after not being started for
about 2 years. Ive given it some fuel and bled the system (as proved). I
also tested the glow plugs. Ive looked for any seized or jammed components,
but everything seems to be ok.
Next I will try and drag start it, as opposed to push starting it :D
MK1 Cavalier Early TV advert
Although I wasn't born when this advert initally aired, and the car didn't
help Vauxhall all that much sales wise, I can't help but love the 70's
funk-orchestra influenced soundtrack!

GoPro - Vauxhall Cavalier Turbo 4x4 (Test)
I decided to test my GoPro in my car. Not only was it a very dull day but I
forgot to swap the back door over on the enclosure meaning the sounds is
very muffled however as I said it was only for testing. I liked the
Amazing Vauxhall Cavalier Mk1 2000 GL, One Owner, 51,348 Miles, Full History - SOLD!
SOLD - MORE URGENTLY REQUIRED
An original, late Vauxhall Cavalier Mk1 2000 GL with just 51,348 miles, one
family owner and full history from new.
Extra brightwork, matt black rear panel, body side mouldings with PVC
inserts, bright sill and wheel arch mouldings, adjustable front head
restraints, carpeted lower doors, laminated screen, boot light, cigar
lighter, quartz clock, push-button radio, vanity mirror, six pod instrument
Factory original Mandarin Red paint still retains a beautiful deep gloss
finish with absolutely no colour fade. There is no corrosion or rust and
the vehicle is structurally perfect. Small areas where paint work has been
treated with a touch up brush, mainly on the front valance, however, there
has been no attempt to fill or spray the car in these areas confirming the
cars honesty and originality. The engine bay has been regularly coated in
WD40 by the previous owner helping to preserve all inner wings. The car is
still fitted with the supplying Dealer number plates. The rear lower
valance protection has discoloured. The original tools, jack and spare
wheel are retained in the boot. A beautiful rare survivor.
Incredible. A true 1970's interior finished in unmarked Beige Ribbed
velour cloth trim, preserved perfectly by tailor-made matching seat covers
on the front seats from new (these have now been removed). All the trim is
factory standard and fully operational controls and gauges make this
interior remarkable. As a final run-out model these late GL specification
vehicles were fitted with GLS refinements making this interior very plush.
The two tone tan over black dashboard remains free from scuffs and cracks.
The heater fan is not working and the headlining around the 'C' pillars is
slightly discoloured. A perfect, comfortable cruising classic.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Being the more powerful '2000' engine unit the 1979cc OHC 4-cylinder
produces 100bhp and 113lb/ft of torque enough to make long outings a joy
and comfortable. A full complement of service invoices exist from new
leaving no doubt this car has been meticulously maintained. The 4-speed
all synchromesh gearbox is light and precise.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES.
Unblemished Rostyle sport wheels with excellent 185/70SR radials and chrome
bezel trims. The bezels are showing signs of pitting and would benefit
from being renewed at some point. Dual circuit, servo assisted braking
system, incorporating discs at the front and rear drums are positive.
