1974 Vauxhall VivaReview
Great Car In Its Day! — This was my first ever car! Loved it got me all over the south east of England & up & down the country a couple of times. Really miss it. It was actualy a Vauxhall Magnum which was the sporty version of the Viva. In the same way that the XR3i was to the Escort. This was built like a tank. Memories of accidentaly sliding into the back of a brand spanking new Beamer & looking on in horror at the devestation caused when the car pulled forward. (The whole back end of the car wiped out). The magnum did not have a scratch. :-) would reccomend only with the benifit of time travel or a pristine example.

Pros: Vintage class
