Vaux­hall gains ex­tra show space at NEC

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -­clas­sic­mo­tor­

Af­ter pre­vi­ously com­plain­ing it was un­der-rep­re­sented at the Lan­caster In­sur­ance Clas­sic Mo­tor Show, Vaux­hall will host its largest ever dis­play at the 1113 Novem­ber event in Birm­ing­ham.

In 2014 the com­pany grum­bled that not enough Vaux­hall-re­lated clubs were al­lowed and that it needed more space.

It looks like it’s got its wishes. Vaux­hall will have a 10-ve­hi­cle stand cel­e­brat­ing its ex­port his­tory. More mar­que own­ers’ clubs will join the man­u­fac­turer to cre­ate an im­pres­sive ‘Vaux­hall Zone’ too.

Join­ing Vaux­hall at the NEC will be 13 Vaux­hall own­ers’ clubs, in­clud­ing the Droop­snoot Own­ers’ Club, the Cav­a­lier & Chevette Own­ers’ Club, Vaux­hall Viva Own­ers’ Club and Vaux­hall Cresta Own­ers’ Club in Hall 5. Dave Childs, Droop Snoot Group pub­lic­ity rep says: ‘We’ve got three Mag­num sports hatches this year – in­clud­ing the “Sil­ver Bul­let”. It should be an ab­so­lutely ex­cel­lent show.’

Two an­niver­saries will be cel­e­brated – 50 years of the Viva HB and 85 years since the birth of Bedford. Cen­tre­piece of the HB dis­play will be the 1970 MkI½ GT, making its de­but af­ter a two-year restora­tion by Vaux­hall’s Heritage Cen­tre.
