Even though all the Hillaman, Sunbeam, Reliant, and Wolseley factories are long gone, there’s still a lot of cars being built in the UK. It seem likely, though, that there will be a drop in those numbers of UK-built cars, because, thanks to Brexit, GM may be taking their toys and going home.
Right this moment, if you’re a Vauxhall around Bedfordshire, UK, you’re probably pissing your sump with fear right now. That’s because a mysterious criminal organization dubbed the Vauxhall Cannibals are around, and they’ve brutally stripped or stolen parts from over 500 Vauxhalls so far. Just Vauxhalls. What’s going…
The Opel/Vauxhall Corsa VXR is a 202 hp hot hatch that GM just won’t bring to America to take on the Ford Fiesta ST. But is America missing out on anything at all?
New Zealand is quite possibly the most car-crazy per capita country in the entire world, as we at TST recently learned by touring the whole country for two weeks. Most importantly, Kiwis take incredible pride in doing everything themselves, from body work, to making parts, to repurposing parts that never should have…
Oh ho ho! Someone's gonna lose their job over this one! The whole internet is collectively shitting their internet-pants over this dazzling wower of a leak of pictures the new Opel Corsa OPC ahead of its official reveal and ... aw, screw it. I can't even pretend to give a shit. Sorry, Opel, but today wasn't the best…
On the 1st of June, 1964, the first Viva rolled off the line at British Vauxhall's Ellesmere Port factory. Fifty years on, GM Europe's wilder bunch rocks harder than ever with an awesome ad celebrating their five millionth car.
The fifth-generation Opel/Vauxhall Corsa comes with new engines and transmissions, a totally redesigned chassis lowering the central of gravity, lots of gadgets but the same compact dimensions as before. But can it beat the Fiesta?
In Britain, if you have a van, you're not just a man anymore, you are a man with a van. Vauxhall knows that. That's why the new Vivaro has to go through a few extreme test procedures.
Vauxhall's hot hatches are pretty much the best in business (depending on who you ask), so why won't GM start shaking up Buick's lineup by importing cheap performance to get a slice from the Abarth 500/Focus ST cake?
It's a Vauxhall VXR8 GTS against a Mercedes E63 AMG, but while the Merc is slightly faster off the line, that's not what I care about. Given that the Chevrolet SS is getting a manual next year, would you buy that or the Vauxhall if you could?
GM's brand new Ecotec engine promises superior fuel economy and smoother running than any three-cylinder on the market today. It's just like the V8 wars of yesteryear, only much much smaller.
The demise of Holden may be ensured but it's legacy will live on at least a little longer in another of GM's endeavors abroad— the Vauxhall VXR8 GTS super sedan aimed squarely at the M5 and E63 AMG.
We have classic Opels around here, but no Vauxhalls apart from a friend of mine with a Viva which has no rear brakes for burnouts. Shame, as this competition-spec Vauxhall VX4/90 from the sixties is something I could really get used to.
This is the Vauxhall Monza Concept. It represents the next generation of Opel/Vauxhall's design language, and is set to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September. But is it a hit, or a miss?
Vauxhall Motors has launched a limited edition book and microsite titled Vauxhall and I to celebrate their 110th anniversary. Morrissey had nothing to do with this one. Instead, it's a massive slice of Britain's cultural history from a unique point of view.
You know Vauxhall today as Britain's Opel with the steering wheel on the right, but back at the beginning of the motoring era, they made cars that were faster than Bentleys. The OE-type 30-98 was one of those.
When you hear General Motors, you probably think of Chevrolets, Cadillacs and GMCs. Or bailouts and the death of Pontiac in case you're not a fan of the company.
Santa Marta, Colombia — Cars are pretty expensive to buy in Colombia, so a lot of people take cabs and buses. As a friend of mine always told me, wheels beats heels, and by that logic catching a ride in someone else's car works for me.
A young driver was trapped when his Vauxhall Astra collided with a semi on a busy English highway this morning. The small car became pinned beneath the truck's loaded trailer, but its driver was able to get out of the car without assistance from rescue workers.
