  • Heritage Centre open day Sunday 12th June
  • Over 50 classic Vauxhalls on display, from 1903 to the present day

The world’s biggest private collection of classic Vauxhalls is to throw its doors open to the public for one day only.

To coincide with the Luton Festival of Transport and 100 years of being based in the town, Vauxhall is holding its annual open day at its Heritage Centre in Park Street, Luton, on Sunday 12th June 2005, where visitors can view over 50 classic Vauxhall models completely free of charge.

From the very first 1903 Vauxhall through to ‘modern’ classics such as the Lotus Carlton, the Heritage Collection contains over a century’s worth of classic Vauxhall models, including family favourites from yesteryear such as the PA Cresta, Viva and every generation of Cavalier.

In addition to the impressive collection of classics, visitors will get an opportunity to see some of Vauxhall’s latest models up close, including the hot new Astra VXR, the innovative New Zafira, stylish Astra Sport Hatch and the scorching Monaro VXR.

The open day will run from 10am to 5pm and a free bus service will run throughout the day between Luton Parkway railway station, the Vauxhall Heritage Centre and the Luton Festival of Transport at Stockwood Park - ideal for those who want a fantastic classic transport themed day out!
