HC Viva in Stewartstown County Tyrone

I was told about this car yesterday. Went online and found a few photos from mid April 2019 that someone has taken on their adventures around this scrapyard. It is a scrapyard solely dedicated to breaking classics. I was gong to take a run down to it when lockdown eases but perhaps there isn't much to save for a 100 mile round trip.

Looks like a later car with the 1300L badge and Vauxhall lettering along the back panel.

Some more photos.
If you look through the gap in the boot lid you can see the blue dashboard with white seats, looks like the door cards are blue too, snazzy.

Must have been used as a workhorse judging by the towbar and trailer light socket.

You also notice the amount of black paint plastered on it? Must have been on its way out before it was parked up to Rust In Pieces.

Finally, perhaps a clue about where this car came from. Save our Moyle services, Moyle being the north coast of Northern Ireland, County Antrim. Perhaps 1972Nail owned this car once upon a time? :D

Blue interior is always sort after but other than that not worth the trip :wink:
