    Default Trip Down Memory Lane - Favourite VX ads

    What was your favourite ever Vauxhall?

    For me, it was my dad's white E-reg Cavalier SRI-130. It went like stink in it's day, had recaro seats, 14" alloys and two tone paintwork with red go-faster strips in the bumpers!

    As sad as it might sound, I found myself watching loads of old 70's, 80's and 90's Vauxhall car commercials on YouTube last night -such as the humble Chevette, the dodgy boy-racer Nova, and the fleet-favourite Cavalier etc. Some of the ads were cheesier than a bag of Wotsits, whilst others were quite cool for their day. A great trip down memory lane!! Here's some examples.

    OMG, those bring back some memories, I worked in a dealership when these cars were in production, good times. They were great cars and seemed now looking back, more reliable than today's offerings.

    I loved the SAAB advert when the SAAB aeroplane flew over the top of it at the end.

    I was looking at some brochire pics of 70's & 80's VX's, and the cars had huge panel gaps that you could get your fingers in to, doors that didn't line up, cheap looking bolts and screw heads on display, naff weld lines etc. How things have changed since then!!

    Had 2 sri 130 cavaliers. 1 was a 4dr saloon E reg in flame red. Wow what a car. It flew big time. Iwas in my late teens early twentys at the time, so speed was everything then.

    It would do 130mph anywhere any time on a (private track) and eat XR2 XR3 Peougot 205 1.6gti but struggled against the 1.9gti.

    It looked ace 2.
    The other was a hatchback but wasnt as nice as my saloon one i had.
