    Quick and reasonably capable yes. Cool I think is stretching things (based on standard car as puctures don't display at work).

    But it's a personal thing......

    Yes, you're right Buddy, it's very much a personal thing. My car was a wee bit different from a standard VXR, not everyone would consider it cool, but a lot of die hard Vauxhall fans do to this day, as did the photographer on the day of the magazine shoot, who usually works for Classic Ford mag. It was my baby and I loved it to bits. Paula x

    That's an absolutely cracking looking car you had there Paula, and I don't say that lightly as I generally hate Vauxhalls,- Chevette HSR being the exception. It must have been a real wrench to sell that.
