  • Vauxhall Heritage Centre Open Day - 10th June 2018

    A few of us from the South East decided to meet up again at this years Vauxhall Heritage Centre open day which was held on Sunday 10th June. After an initial meet up at the A12 / M25 junction we all drove on round the M25 stopping off for breakfast along the way before driving onto the Heritage Centre at Luton This year was the 25th anniversary of the Vauxhall Heritage Centre. Overall a good turn out of varying Vauxhalls from across the era's. Although not planned and only a couple of miles away a bit later on in the day we all drove onto the Luton Festival of Transport Classic Car Show which just happened to be held on the same day. All our cars attracted plenty of attention at both shows. A great day out with all the guys from the club again. A few pictures below of our cars and the Mk2 Astra line up from the day.

      Hi yes the Heritage Centre was open for the public to wander round. The cars are fairly packed in but they had a number of them parked out the front of the Heritage Centre too. Shame you couldn't make it was a good event and day out.

              Yeah really good day. You done well to get us all in as gate crashers at the transport show and even better getting away with paying your entrance fee with not entirely legal tender currency LOL.
              The two dodgy pound coins I got of your's as change I have since manage to offload so all is good
