    Hello. You've made it to the oldest, most dedicated corner of the internet about the trusty MK2 Vauxhall Cavalier.
    We're proud to be a VBOA affiliated owners club home to the General Motors 'J Car' platform and ALL of its variants worldwide*.

    The site started in 1998 and contains thousands of posts, articles, project threads and more, 
    offering many thousands of hours of content that we couldn't possibly fit onto our Facebook stream!

    We are an active club - seeking to refresh peoples memories of these brilliant cars - one of the most popular and fondly remembered of the 1980's. 
    We're a small band of enthusiasts here to keep these old girls running, and we're always on the look-out for new members & events. 

    Why not grab a coffee, sign-up, say hello or join the club today!

    *The MK2 had more variants than any other car of the eighties; 5 door hatchback, 2 & 4 door saloons, estate and a plethora of special editions ranging from the Antibes, Club, Commander to the limited run Calibre as well as convertible variants. It was also known as the Opel Ascona C, the Chevrolet Monza, Pontiac Sunbird the Holden Camira, Isuzu Aska and more!

    • I've yet to book on the site, but should be Friday + Saturday night, in Orwin - if it can make it up the road!  
    • Booked friday and Saturday night. Small tent and no cav.     UPDATED
    • Ok so how do i book this? Can come Friday and Saturday.  No cav (obviously).small tent ( peugeot shaped) ;). Plus two doors for mr munt  
    • Tom, there will be plenty of room this year, the stand is much larger. Running past our stand is the 'ringroad' on the other side of it will be space for us to park non Mk2s if we need to.
    • I did this, except the fuel and brake lines (which is a job I haven't sorted yet). I love your rotisserie setup....
    • Now whats left? Some holes here and there, the roof, and the front apron, but that can be welded on after I've finished the underside. Oh, forgot about few brackets and those welds that need over doing.  My idea is to apply all necessary coatings to the underside while the car is still on the rotisserie. Plus maybe to do the brake and fuel lines. 
    • Working on the boot/rear apron. Since my tools are limited to hammers and dollys, and also some bits of wood,  the result is nothing near concours quality. But the grooves there are necessary, so they had to be done somehow.  I have also ordered new front and rear aprons, hopefully they arrive next week. 

      Some sandblasted and painted bits. 
    • Didn't notice a discount being applied??? £75 for Fri-Sun with an extra vehicle sound right?
    • OK everyone. We don't have access to the LMF database so, if you are coming can you please add the all the details as a NEW post on the sign up thread. We will add you to the master list. Thanks in advance.

    • This is the gathering information on who is coming thread. As in previous years please do not amend the initial master summary post. Please add your own post with the information requested and a Mod will add it to the master list before deleting it. Again, do not put chat here as it will be deleted. Put it in the chat thread. VBOA want to know 1. How many vehicles on the stand by day.  We want to know how many are Mk2 Cavaliers and how many others. 2. How many tents and their approx size e.g. 2, 3 , 4 person etc 3. Any caravans/motorhomes/trailers if any, as space is very limited. So, when you say you are coming please state - name (handle and real), what car, which day(s) - if overnight your tent size, motorhome Thanks
