I have been a fan of the HC range since their introduction and continue to admire them to this day.



2016 sees the 40th anniversary of the Sportshatch. It has been suggested that a commemorative sales brochure be produced to mark the event, as nothing was ever produced by Vauxhall at its launch. Anyone interested, preferably with a Sportshatch in the south of England, drop me a note as I am keen to progress the idea further.

MKY 620P Sportshatch

I first spotted MKY620P in 1976 at Alexandra Palace. 32 years later, I couldn't believe it when the same car was advertised for sale. Unfortunately i couldn't buy it then, but would be very interested if it were for sale today. Get in touch if you own it.

The HPF's 40th anniversary saw a gathering of such cars at the Vauxhall Heritage Centre in Luton, followed by a day at the Millbrook Test Track, organised by the DSG.


And this is what started it all off - my first Vauxhall (a Viva in 1977)


and with my Magnum in 1982

I am able to come and photograph your car and produce a montage of images that would look good gracing any wall.  Static, Trackday, you name it. Contact me for details.
