Ian Coomber, VBOA Chairman

You do realize that the Vauxhall Viva was immortalized in song by famed British rocker, Elvis Costello. On his 1978 album, This Year’s Model, the third track, “The Beat”, contains the following lyric:
“I’ve been a bad boy with the standard leader.
My neighbor’s revving up his Vauxhall Viva.”
Just thought you’d like to know.
