Vauxhall Club of WA show & shine 2013

This is the Premier event for the Vauxhall Owners Club of Australia, WA Branch and all members are encouraged to attend with their Vauxhall or Bedford, including unfinished restoration projects.

My parents owned a Vauxhall Velox before I was born and I've always had a soft spot for these cars.

Look familiar?  This late model Vauxhall Viva is basically a rebadged Holden Torana.

Another rebadged Holden Torana with slightly different headlight layout. As a cost saving measure General Motors cross sold the same car designs amongst its subsidiaries. Then as now the English Vauxhall, German Opel and Australian Holden companies were all selling the same car.

A novel Bedford Dormobile.  Dormobile customised a variety of different car types into mini-campervans. This is one of only two known in Western Australia.

It still has all its original fittings. Excellent!
