its funny you found this , iwas watching this last night on you tube after somone on VODC had posted the artical about the launch of the cavalier mk3 .

Dose any one know if this senator is still on the road today or has it met the gates of vauxhall heaven ???

£13.000 can you believe it , considering how much you can pick one up for today . Im always gob smaked when i hear the price of the carltons and senators when they were brand new . I mean i was 18/19 when my dippy was new and back then must have been around £14,000 out of the show room . I remember working part time at ford valeting sierra`s and granada`s in the show room , thinking i would love a azure or a cosworth . I was a for man back then and also like vauxhalls , but my local showroom was ford in cottesmore village .

I know its been years since anyone posted in this topic.....but £13k was absolute peanuts to what you could spend on a Senator B if your pockets were deep enough! :o :o :o



HTH! :P
Nissan took a 600bhp NISMO Racecar and de-tuned this flagship Coupé for everyday use on public roads. GM took a reliable Carlton GSi 3000 24v and had Lotus convert it into a 377bhp Bahnstorming Lotus Carlton. Both vehicles were on sale from 1989....Which manufacturer would you trust with your cash??

Must admit - when I was looking for an Omega, I WANTED an auto after driving my wife's around town and love the MV6 I bought - helluva car for pocket money.

It still is a Ford garage!  ;D

As for the Auto Vs Manual arguement. I've had 24v's in both format and, well I got a manual now. More drivability, but the auto is definately the most relaxing, effortless thing I've ever driven and make awesome tow cars to boot.
