Vauxhall is one of the most historic car brands on the planet and one that has strong links with the UK, ranking second only to Ford as Britain’s biggest-selling car maker.
That got us talking in the Petrol News office and it wasn’t long before we were making our cases for the ‘best Vauxhall ever’.
Our bickering will soon be silenced, however, because organisers of June’s Performance Vauxhall Show have embarked on a survey with the aim of settling the argument for good.
The survey is open to all, not just Vauxhall fans or attendees of the show, and you can have your say here until May 31st.
What about this Performance Vauxhall Show though? Well, it’ll take place at Santa Pod in Bedfordshire on Sunday June 11th and it’ll be one of the most action packed yet, according to the team behind it.
There will be a special 25th birthday display to celebrate the silver anniversary of the Cavalier Turbo – one of the rarest and most cherished of 1990s performance saloons, with just 49 examples on UK roads. At least 10 of the surviving examples will be in attendance at the show.
The Performance Vauxhall Show will comprise on-strip action too, with a VX-only ‘Run What Ya Brung’ likely to feature retro Novas, Chevettes, Cavaliers and Astras, or more modern VX220s, Monaros and VXRs.
It also promises an autotest, entrance photography, a lively retail village for the latest parts, mods and memorabilia, a show and shine, and some of the best and busiest club displays going.
Visit performancevauxhallshow.co.uk for more details but if you can’t make the event, there will be a second Performance Vauxhall Show on October 15th at Rockingham Motor Speedway.
Stephen Hasley, brand manager at Petrol News, comments: “The result of the survey will be the subject of much debate when it emerges a week ahead of the Performance Vauxhall Show, which promises to be a big date in any petrolhead’s calendar.
