    I'm back

    In some ways Cavalier ownership needs to be seen as an addiction. A decent SRi is probably around £5k.
  2. Its the Gen GM battery tray test tool.
  3. Welcome to the site Kieran. We need 'before' photos John
  4. Good to see you around. From another Cavweb oldie
  5. VBOA meeting this morning announced that the show is still on. Subject to Government guidelines etc.
  6. Sounds a plan. Shouldn't be seized unless the water has gone. I'd take the plugs out and see if it turns by hand, if it does put a battery on and see. You could be pleasantly surprised, the tappets will rattle a bit before the oil gets up properly. Could put a smile on your face, at that mileage the engine/gearbox shouldn't need rebuilding.

  8. Welcome to our very long term home You look to be a real Vauxhall enthusiast. Good luck.

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. Hotel rooms at the Aviator hotel onsite will be a f

    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.
