It was directly opposite Malaya garage, the local Porsche main dealer. Oh how times have changed!

    I'm guessing it was a similar size to the Morgan dealer in Cranfield, i.e. very very small.

    Three car showroom if memory serves. Had a petrol station though. Used to do the smurfs. Can't remember what fuel brand that was.

    Usually quite a fan of older Chevy stuff from a design standpoint, but I think they made a hash of the '76 Chevrolet Monza. General Motors' John DeLorean nicknamed it the "Italian Vega", citing styling with a strong resemblance to the Ferrari 365 GTC/4.







    They took it racing



    Oldsmobile also did a variant with another familiar GM name, the Starfire Firenza



    I would of course climb over all of the above to get to an Opel Manta or a Monza.

    If the whole world was filled with just animals and David Attenborough, it would be a beautiful place. Unfortunately, it's been overrun by 7.6-billion assholes.
