JP, Just FYI I did email all Vauxhall owners registered to date. I'll send another friendly reminder this weekend and encourage them to join. Were you able to tell the Yahoo group about it before the group shut down?

Basil, you might want to replace the Rover/Land Rover forum ro Vauxhall as I have only seen two or three posts in the years i've been with you. They have a pretty healthy club network a multi forums self standing on the internet. I have Land Rovers, but have tried a couple of times to draw interest. Your site just a thought.

Thanks boss and yes, I did notify them so we will see what happens. And like LarryKs comment, if there isn't the interest after a while we can delete it as not worth the pixels.

We shall see. And Larry, I have thought about nixing the LR forum. Still might one of these days.

no reason you couldn't tuck it under Other British cars as a subforum too.

Mine is in major restoration mode, so I don't have a lot to show right now. I did just finish cleaning up and refurbing the instrument cluster. I wanted to make sure all of the gauges worked, and it seemed like a good winter job to do.

I pretty much have to go through every piece on the car to bring it back to nice shape, so it has been a slow process.

Now you just need to wrap a car around it and you'll be al set! How long have you have it - buy it as a project car?

Wrap a car around it? Hmm, maybe just restore it from the inside out.... :D

I've technically owned the car for about 3 years, but the car belonged to my grandfather, who bought it used a long long time ago. It sat in the weeds as long as I can remember, and I am trying to bring it back to life. I also have a parts car, but other than those, I have never seen another one in person. I have a lot restored, but still plenty to do.
