The biggest advances in cars to me was front wheel drive on the Astra’s almost no bother with snow. The ability to put your foot down and pull round a corner, almost oversteer instead of understeer was a bonus.
The Vectra’s were superb cars with the 3.0 Sri being the best car that I have ever had. Still miss it but not the price of buying a set of front tyres every 14,000 miles expensive Big boots.
Drove a Rover 2.7 in the early 90’s the engine being built by Honda. That was a magnificent car with that engine, almost a dream car because of that engine.
