    Hi all,after 11years of ownership and 17 years old,the time has arrived to let the Vec go.This w/end she goes to a new home and will be used and cared for as I have done.This lil' 4 potter has done me well but the new owner has been to view her and drive her three times!!.Made a good offer with a few odd parts thrown in.
    I hope i'm still welcome on here as i'm changing to another Vauxhall,but not Vectra!I will post what I have my eye on soon.

    Sad to have you leaving the ranks of B ownership Howy, but all things considered, it's great news that another example of the Marque will live on. You've saved one from becoming yet another scrapper, so from one B-man to another......................well done!

    Sad that another B leaves the forum but hopefully new owner will join up. Great that it's going to a new home and hope to see you Howy still kicking around the place.
