We actually had one before we moved out to Australia in 1985. The 2 door is an Opel Senator.

From memory do a search under Vauxhall Cavalier as well - think it mirrors what we call VB-VC

Cavalier was smaller... the Carlton ran from 1978 which is the VB-VC equivilant.

Thanks for that comment... I thought I might share the pics etc with my fellow CT members seen as it is a distant cousin of the VL from the UK.

My parents had one of these when we still lived in England in the early 80's 2 litre 4 cylinder!

Years ago Lotus got hold of this car and twin turbo'ed it and whacked a body kit on it, looked ok for it's time when it first came out. Went like the clappers back then too.
