i think J-type is probably right. i doubt that GM would drop the vauxhall name overnight, depsite the fact that the people mover thingy they build and the old frontera are considered to be two of the worst cars in the last few years.
besides, the vectra and astra are world cars and are also built by opel, so these wont disappear.
ford woul not build cars for their major competitors either. they might take over the plant, but IMHO, they would be completely mad. the british record of car manufacture is less than impressive. there was a thread on here not so long ago about the worst cars, and it seemed to be full of rovers and triumphs. the english build lovely cars, when they work. trouble is that the whole class system / work ethic over there is so crap, that this comes out in the product.
except obviously for mk2 escorts as these were the greatest cars ever built, anywhere in the world, by anyone. :s6:
You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
