Are you adopted? If so, have you ever attempted to reconnect with your birth family? That’s the MO of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Saturn Astra, as it rocks Vauxhall badging and stripes. Could that mean it’s worth its adopted price?
Remember Peter Maddox, the 84-year-old U.K resident whose yellow car was vandalized for “destroying a picturesque view” while parked at his village home? Recently, everyone from drivers of ice-cream trucks to Lamborghini owners paraded through the village in yellow vehicles to support him.
Today, General Motors sold its sad, middle-of-the-road European car brands Opel and Vauxhall to France’s sad, middle-of-the-road rival Peugeot-Citroën Group. One reason why is because GM’s Euro brands have been undesirable and unprofitable for decades. Another is Brexit.
U.K. resident Peter Maddox, 84, just wanted to park his car at his village home, and he told The Sun locals supported him parking it outside—there is no other place to park, he said. But visitors didn’t like a yellow car in their Instagram shots of the village, and somebody busted out its windows to let him know that.
Opel, sold as Vauxhall in Britain, is slashing production at two of its plants in Germany because nobody in the UK—its biggest market—has any money after that damn Brexit vote, The Financial Times reports.
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.
