Heritage on show for Drive It Day


Plans are growing for the Federation of Historic Vehicle Clubs' annual show of classic strength, Drive It Day, taking place this year on Sunday 22 April.

The latest venue to chuck its name into the hat is the Vauxhall Heritage Centre, which will once again throw open its doors in Luton, offering enthusiasts free entry to the museum's stash of some 70 historic Griffin delights, which range from the Prince Henry (in the foreground above) to the XVR and SRV concept cars.

The Heritage Centre will be open from 10am-4pm, and the firm is asking classic fans to 'join us for light refreshments and the opportunity to see one of the largest manufacturer heritage collections in the UK'.

The Centre can be found on Park Street, Luton LU1 3HG, behind the marque's main Griffin House headquarters on Osborne Road. You can find out more about the collection on the GM Heritage website.
