boothboy That Brian guy, he knows his Concepts!

GM first used the rear split window on their 1956 Oldsmobile Golden Rocket concept and not a lot more. Perhaps the rear tailfins came back on a 1962 Caddy but they were headed that way anyhow. When you look at Concept cars you can pick out future styling points. GM used that styling two years late on a 1958 Corvette Styling Prototype. Almost but rather ugly.

496CHEVY3100 [QUOTE=Dave57210;3979897]Yup. Actually, the Vauxhall Viva was sold in Canada @ Buick/Pontiac dealers, while it's badge-engineered twin brother - called the Envoy Epic was sold @ Chev/Olds/Cadillac dealers. Mine was a '66 Epic

It broke differentials about once a year, took second gear out about once every year-and-a- half and broke the clutch linkage cable every 3 months or so.

It ran V stock @ the strip against VW's, Austins, early Datsuns & Toyotas etc and ran mid 23's. Got a few class wins with it.

World's WORST winter car - virtually NO heater, and starting at 40 below was - well - just not happening unless the block heater was plugged in and the electric battery blanket was also on the job. Still - it got about 40 MPG - important for a poor student.

OK - Whinny - you're up again![/QUOTE

I owned a Vauxall Super Victor back in late 60s,it was not all that bad,i used it as a run around car mmy 55 chevy was not a good every day driver,,327,,2x4 Muncie and 456 gears,,vauxall much cheaper and saved wear and tear on my Chevy.


I think it is the only Vauxall I have ever saw
