ADAM THOMP­SON

‘Why just af­ter 1991? It should be judged on the in­di­vid­ual ve­hi­cle. We have a 2002 lim­ited edi­tion Corsa owned from new – low mileage and im­mac­u­late, pos­si­ble fu­ture clas­sic but un­der this scheme would be scrapped.’

OL­LIE MCHUGH

‘Nice to see them re­spect­ing the clubs (that) may want to pre­serve cars worth sav­ing. I don’t see any other mar­ques con­sid­er­ing this. A good move from Vaux­hall.’

STU­ART WAVISH

‘Scrap­page schemes are the en­emy of the clas­sic car en­thu­si­ast full stop!’

IAN BEECH:

‘Nice to see Vaux­hall do­ing things to save clas­sics.’

DANNY O’KE­EFFE:

‘Ac­tu­ally I wrote to Vaux­hall about this in my ca­pac­ity as the owner of a clas­sic car busi­ness. I at­tached pho­tos of per­fectly good clas­sics lined up slowly rot­ting away. Sadly I was given a deeply sani­tised ‘cor­po­rate’ reply, which was frankly dis­re­spect­ful. I sus­pect that this scheme is an ac­coun­tant or mar­ket­ing chap’s idea.... cer­tainly, not a true car en­thu­si­ast.’
