Micropost: The Elusive 1991 Opel Astra in Metallic Light Grey

The vast majority of survivors are estates or saloons in dark green, dark blue or dark red . Never black.

Rare in this colour now: 1991-1998 Opel Astra 1.6 saloon

What you don’t see are light metallic five door versions. However for the next version metallic grey became the default. The car here has the top trim but a mid-range engine, the 1.6 petrol.

Here it is in classic 1995 dark green GL trim.

I like anchovies. I dislike post-war town planning.

  1. Just like the Toyota (Avensis?) not so long, this is another one that looks better in picture than in real life. Cars like this give mid-size saloon a bad name.
