    Brilliant cars.

    Ive got an old brochure from when i was a vauxhall nut i'll try and find it.

    If i remember correctly the finance deals/apr were mental.......something like £700 per month to get one back in 91/92!

    My old mans senator 3.0 s6 was interesting enough to drive in the wet, dread to think what the lotus carltons were like,

    That said, a real iconic car and I'd love to own one, but not with the current fuel prices...

    I had one of these a few years back. unfortunately I didn't have enough talent to keep it on the road.....

    Sad times lucky me and my mate walked out of it.

    Amazing how many people have " got a mate who"....pics or it didn't happen.

    Was never banned by the police. they were just miffed because their 3.0 senators couldnt keep up.

    It's so not a cool car, turn up for a date in that and she ain't leaving the house.

    Big old turd.

    Probably the fastest ive ever been in a car was a freind of a freinds LC about 5 years ago. Didnt realise how fast it was either untill i actually tried to focus on the road and then looked at the clocks. (i was passenger of course) Was up for sale, but way out of my budget, still was an experience!

    Personally my all time fav is the 205 T16, ive toyed with one on the road and got humiliated in my cav turbo, but never been in one.

    One of my top 5 all time cult fav cars. I do believe there is a LC up in Nairn in the garage on the left when you go out the Elgin road. Was there not long after they were released and Im sure its still there. Anyone up that area verify if it is and if so go and get some pics as its minted as it was never driven.
