  1. Welcome to our very long term home You look to be a real Vauxhall enthusiast. Good luck.
  2. Welcome to the Club, good to see another Ascona, especially a 2 door with an XE. Do you need a pair of UK spec headlights?
  3. Just had an update from VBOA. Working on the basis that we hope to be getting back to normal by then, VBOA are are going back to Sywell Aerodrome for the VBOA Rally on the 2nd to the 4th July.. They have listened and learnt lots from the 2019 event and plan to build from that to deliver another show that we as an association and community can be proud of! Details of activities/vendors etc will updated as and when we secure them. All camping, hotel, day and other tickets that were carried over from this year are valid.

    What is happening? Two new owners from Australia in a couple of months, but you are a long way apart! Welcome to the site, nice looking car that seems to have handled your climate rather well.

    Hello again

    Pretty well thanks, got a couple of cancers but they seem to be slow, hopefully I will die with not of them. Down to just one Mk2, a Mk3 CDi and my old Mk3 SRi. Sold my original red Calibra last year so just the three Vauxhalls. Oh plus the Mk2 Jag still not moved from its lair and my daily S3 saloon. Decent Cavs seem to have shot up in value over the past couple of years. Perhaps the onslaught of unemployment hitting us now and the near future will have an impact.

    Hi Abo Good to hear from you again. Hope you are well. John
  7. You can swap the front seats, but not the runners, over if you want to extend seat life. This way you can even up the wear but the runners/seatbelt fixings are specific to side. If you do this there is a sneaky plastic rivit in the middle of the plastic side panel, just pop it and make sure you keep it for reassembly.

    Vauxhall Bedford Opel Association annual show. Used to be at Billing but is now the other (your) side of Northampton at Sywell airfield. I would think we'll get 20 Mk2s there next year.

    That looks really nice. You put a lot of work into it. You clearly know what you are doing. Is the red cable across the back for audio system? How did you find us?

    Smart install from the photo. Did you do it? Why off the road for so long? My questions were after info as to whether it could be a vacuum build up in the tank restricting fuel supply when used for a while. Or when starting, if the pressure in the petrol header manifold had dropped and needed some pump action to get it up before it would fire. I have an XE'd Mk3.

    Have you tried running it with the petrol cap off, to check the tank breather is clear? On starting, do you turn it on, wait a mo, then start or go for it straight off?
