The first car I ever owned was this 1962 Vauxhall Cresta. It had bench seats front and back with a 3 speed column change gearbox. During the time I had it, I fitted a progressive choke Weber carb conversion which gave it that extra ummph, unfortunately it also gave it a blown piston in the process.

This was the last model in the series of PA Cresta's, the earlier two versions had the smaller 2.2 litre engine, differing rear tail light clusters and in the first model year a 3 piece split rear windscreen.
