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.

VAUXHALL HP FIRENZA ORIGINAL PROMO FILM
This was the dealer promotional video used in what Vauxhall called the "mini theatre" which was a free standing projector and built in screen, most dealers had them but they were very unreliable. The quality and sound are not brilliant here either but it gives an insight into the car which was brilliant and 1970s fashion which wasn't!!
