1979 Vauxhall Chevette 1.3
Best car I ever had
The head gasket blew.
Fuel pump died.
Water pump died.
Starter motor died.
The clutch gave up.
This car from its faults, should in theory be my most hated car... In fact I loved it.
It was my first car and I still love the look of them (so much so I have just purchased a project chevette).
They stick to the road and handle well.
Also they are something just a little bit different on the road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I picked one of these up for a dealer in Manchester. I drove the car from Sussex, it had 14 miles on the clock, I made it to redhill in surrey when it lost power. I waited 2 days for it to be repaired. it needed new push rods.
I loved the little chevettes, simple good handling and cheap.
Miss those days.
