Viva HB "HDV 966E"

Postby JimmyJames80 » Sat Feb 22, 2014 12:30 pm

As I am new to the viva scene I got quite excited this morning.

The sun was shining in my home town of Higham Ferrers so me the wife and the boys went for a little walk and from a distance parked outside a house i spotted a shape that looked like a HB, we had a walk over and there it was, a stunning HB Viva in white think the reg number was HDV 966E I just wondered if we knew who it was and do they live in the same town as me or were they just visiting.

Thanks

We have it in our register. Not sure who owns it or where it lives. Did it have a 2000TC badge on the back and different front seats?

Hi Peter,

It was parked on a drive facing towards me so did not get a look at the back. Also could not be confident to say if the seats were different.

It had what looked like a HC grill but was defiantly a HB, it was white with minilites on it. Looked in great condition had a trailer attached to the back.

I will have another walk over there tomorrow see if it's there again.
