Is it an Avenger Tiger? Or something like that, can't remember exactly.
indeed - a tiger
first 100 were yellow with black stripe for engine bulge. rare as fuck yet half the price of a mexico these days
They were rare when they first came out. Not sure how good they were though.
I think they had uprated suspension and a few other tweaks and were slightly faster than the AVO competitors- only made for a couple of years and most were rallied to shit by privateers IIRC, hence their rarity
Was there ever a truely sporty Viva? Ignore the SL90s
The Firenza HP was based on the Viva platform.
Thanks! Forgot about that one! Small Magnum lol!!
Speaking of fast Vauxhalls, I've not seen a 2,3 HS for years. They must have been fun to drive.
Pretty sure there was a firenza snoot for sale recently in Wooler or somewhere on the border that took my fancy - looked to have been used for extra curricular activities for the farmer. a few bumps but straight and original panelling - was a bargain 1500 quid or so - I do not however have a garage
Nice ones go for 30k+ now. Anything with a 70s/80s rally pedigree is very sought after. I watched a 1.3L Chevette go for 6.5k in a online auction! I presume somebody intends to turn it into a HS/HSR replica.
In a similar vein; Manta 400.
Any earlier VXR is rare these days.
