1973 Chevy Firenza Can Am Shed Find
We were not able to video loading this car at the site in Florida when we got it as it was raining and almost dark. So here is a video of us unloading it from the trailer here at the house. I did take some pics of the car before moving it and of the "shed" that it was stored in.





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!!

Vauxhall Mokka SUV 2013 review - CarBuyer
Vauxhall Mokka SUV 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1km57ah Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb 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.

Vauxhall Ampera (Chevrolet Volt) hatchback review - CarBuyer
Vauxhall Ampera 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1cTmDNM Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb Competition in the eco car segment is hotting up, and the Vauxhall Ampera is a real contender. Its CO2 emissions are lower than any efficient diesel or hybrid currently on the market. That means there's no road tax to pay, and it's exempt from the London Congestion Charge, too. The Ampera can be plugged into the mains to charge up the batteries (a process which takes around four hours) and can run on electricity alone for around 50 miles, so you shouldn't need a drop of petrol for most journeys. And even when you do need to travel a bit further, economy is so good that you will rarely have to visit a petrol station. But for all of its green credentials, the Ampera offers strong performance. It's fast, features sporty looks and an attractive high-spec interior. All this comes at a price though, as the Ampera is more expensive than its hybrid and all-electric competitors. And if you think it looks familiar, that's because it's the same car underneath as the Chevrolet Volt.

Opel / Vauxhall Astra hatchback 2013 review - CarBuyer
Vauxhall Astra hatchback 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1cGTBMP Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The Vauxhall Astra is no longer the dull, rep-friendly company car it once was. The current car is just as stylish as a Ford Focus and goes some way to challenge the VW Golf in terms of build quality and interior finish. There's a choice of three and five-door hatchbacks and a more practical estate, with a two-door Cascada convertible taking the place of the old Astra TwinTop. All models feel comfortable and secure on the road and if you plump for one of the eco-diesels, you'll manage impressive mpg, too. Used values are weak, but dealers tend to offer big discounts on both new and pre-owned cars, so try to avoid paying list price on all but the flagship VXR hot-hatchback versions. All-in, the Astra is a practical, durable and dependable, well-rounded family car.





VAUXHALL DROOP SNOOT FIRENZA LAUNCH RACE AT THRUXTON 1974
The special race for the launch of the HP Firenza droop snoot at Thruxton in 1974 with many famous drivers such as Gerry Marshall who are sadly no longer with us. The driving was crazy but I don't think anyone touched - what a difference to the BTCC. For more information Vauxhall please go to www.vauxpedia.net





Vauxhall Astra VXR (Opel Astra OPC) review - CarBuyer
Vauxhall Astra VXR 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1lw1DjJ Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The new Vauxhall Astra VXR and it's most powerful front-wheel-drive hot hatch currently one sale because under the bonnet there's a 2.0-litre turbo with 276bhp that's good for 0-62mph in just 5.9 seconds. The VXR is based on beautiful Astra GTC which is a very good starting point. However, Vauxhall has beefed it up with a muscular body kit, huge alloy wheels and a rear spoiler. There's also a mechanical limited slip differential for improved traction when exciting corners while Vauxhall's HiPer Strut front suspension is designed to quell torque steer.
