Hur­rah for the Monza

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Your Letters -

Great to see the Opel Monza in­cluded in the 10 Grand Tour­ers fea­ture ( CCW 13 Jan­uary), and with a ref­er­ence to the vir­tu­ally for­got­ten Vaux­hall Royale too. The Monza is a very un­der­val­ued and un­der­ap­pre­ci­ated car. When com­pared with the 3.0-litre Capri, for ex­am­ple, it of­fers su­pe­rior build qual­ity, per­for­mance, com­fort and rar­ity, all for a frac­tion of the price. My car is an early chrome bumper 3.0E (1978-1982) and in my opin­ion is the one to have – with­out the un­com­fort­able Re­caros, iffy dig­i­tal dash and ugly plas­tic bumpers found on later (1982 on) GSEs. Find a good sound Monza or Royale and you will en­joy a true clas­sic at rel­a­tively low fi­nan­cial cost. Ian Birks Barns­ley, York­shire
