    3 Vectra B's.
    I was outside around midday with the bonnet up on my Vectra Automatic doing a thermostat assembly change and coolant swap (the thermostat had got stuck partially open), I ordered a replacement off ebay which arrived yesterday. So, armed with the new assembly and 5 ltrs of GM's Red (Dex-Cool) I set about the task and drained the existing red antifreeze. Easy swapover (x18xe engine) on the thermostat. Anyway all reassembled, refilled antifreeze and started the engine and then I heard a voice calling me over by the pavement. Anyway in short, this guy owns a Vectra B 2L DTI and he asked me would I be interested in buying it as he had just bought a Landy and didn't want to have two cars. He said that because I have 5 Vauxhalls on the driveway, he thought I was a collector Lol. I told him that I didn't want another one and certainly not a diesel. We were chatting about Vectra B's in general and lo and behold another guy comes over from across the road and asks me am I interested in buying his 51 plate Astra SXI as he wants it to go to someone who will care for it.
    I did a quick scan around on my property to make sure I didn't have a Vauxhall Dealer's sign up advertising that I buy cars :confused:

    I told them both to drop around full details of their cars (mileage, Mot etc) and said I would keep my eyes open for them, let's see if they do !

    So with the chat over I got back to my Vectra Auto which I had left engine running and checked the coolant level and circulation, all was well :)

    End terrace house, so 3 VX's on the front and 2 on the side. Got enough room for 2 more Lol.

    I know someone who has a big ex dealer Vauxhall (2003 logo) sign, but he won't sell it :(
