    I did my apprentiship at Vauxhall so I know it quite well. They do have a nice 'Heritage' museum still at Luton with interesting cars, going back to 1905 I think? there is a Prince Henry in it and a couple of 30/98s, I wonder what will happen to that now they are owned by PSA? As a pub quiz answer, Vauxhall is the oldest British? car producer.

    My wife had a Christmas card from Germany, with this rather nice stamp. What do you think of the chances of a Vauxhall Cavalier on a UK stamp?

    No, children and grandchildren! Nothing for the car either.

    There are many S7s around with the original rear suspension as yours, and I guess some have got through the IVA like it. I f you look on Dave Andrews site, http://www.dvandrews.co.uk/ there is a drawing of a bracket to take a Capri rear shocker instead of the longer Sierra, this will fit to the tub in the area of the red angle reinforcement you have. Some cars have coil overs fitted in this position, I had doubts about the strength of the mounting on the swing arm as it was only designed to take a shock absorber not to support the weight of the car, but I've not heard of any problems. To find a longer softer spring could be tricky as I'm not sure if anyone knows what the originals were rated at, I guess they varied a bit according to the model.

    Prop Shaft

    This it, I assume you want the end from the diff to the joint, the length of that section from flange to spider is 600mm. Is that any good?

    Perhaps cold water coming out of your heater explains why it wasn’t working very well?

    Pretty Sure Its A Blown Head Gasket

    No the reverse, the overlap means the valves are open so pressure is not generated.

    I would forget about the fog lights and remove them from inside the grill, they willl restrict the airflow too much.
