History of the Vauxhall Chevette

Built between 1975 and 1984, the Vauxhall Chevette was a supermini intended to be a small-sized version of the American Chevrolet but would be heavily based on the Opel Kadett, which was differentiated by the use of the Pontiac "Shovel-nose" look. It would be the best-selling hatchback in the UK from 1975–1978, with its light steering, clutch, gearchange, and rear-wheel drive giving it a sprightly performance.

Independent Tyre Test - The Results

In the world of modern tyres, it is commonplace to come across a tyre test. Sadly, in the world of classic tyres, the investment never seems to be there to do a proper modern tyre test. However, a German magazine in July 2016 conducted this modern tyre test using classic tyres. This classic tyre test has been translated from German to English. What is remarkable in this tyre test is quite how well the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 classic tyre performed in the table at the end. The scores in this table are not scored in relation to the other tyres in the test, so when a score of 1 is recorded, that is a perfect score for a classic tyre or a modern tyre. It is wonderful to see that these classic PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 tyres can give such exemplary results.
