New classic arrives

Recommended Posts

I used to own a bright yellow/black vinyl roof Magnum 2.3 (I think it was)

 

Absolute beast of a car...when it was running. It wasn't the most reliable car I've ever owned but enjoyed it very much. Loads of clocks was my first wow factor. Odd really as much as I used to love lots of clocks, my car hasn't got a single one. It's all these new fangled LCD jobs.

 

It would be nice to see some pictures if you can post some for us

My dad had a magnum when we were growing up I must have been around 10 or 11 at the time, it's the only car I can really remember from my childhood, keep looking on e bay for them but there aren't many around.

 

My first Vauxhall memory of a "Dads car" was the Vauxhall 101. It was a side step for him as it was always Morris Oxford, Wolsley and Austin that were the family bus. Then in 1973 it all changed again when he started driving for Arrow Taxis and bought a brand new Datsun 180B.

 

Maybe I'm just showing my age now!

I had a Vauxhall Firenza 2.3 "droopsnoot", cracking motor.

 

Me too, went very fast but due to setup could swap ends very quickly and the ZF box was a bit of a stir when cold !

In the eighties I built a replica using the last available Vauxhall parts ,the only parts not available were the door cards and the rear bumper due to an unexpected tax bill I sold it to a lad from Sheffield who managed to smash it up on city road .
