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 Monaro VXR500
A 500bhp, supercharged special version of the Aussie brute. No wonder they
gave Tom a nappy.

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!!

The Vauxhall Mokka is the company's answer to popular crossovers like the
Nissan Juke and Skoda Yeti, with raised suspension and chunky bumpers
giving the impression of size to what is, in fact, a relatively small car.
Buyers can choose between a 1.4-litre petrol turbo, a 1.7-litre diesel engine or an entry-level
1.6-litre S petrol model. There are three other versions, including a
gadget-filled Tech Line model that comes with sat-nav and reversing
sensors. However, it's quite expensive compared to the Nissan and Skoda
and, while it's bigger than both these rivals, the driving experience is
not up to the same standards.

1974 Vauxhall Firenza Droop Snoot
The HPF comes out of hibernation, before being unfortunately sold. This is
the only footage I have of it in ten years of ownership and restoration.
This car used to belong to It's a Knockout's Stuart Hall when new. Ah
Note my other Firenza in the background, behind the puppy.
