For many drivers, a car is not just a means of getting from A to B. Cars can be intrinsically linked to people’s lives; so much so they can be considered part of the family, with many often given a name.
Local dealer, Skurrays Vauxhall, is encouraging the community of Swindon to take a trip down memory lane and recall memorable experiences with their car to contribute to Vauxhall and I.
The retailer on Langley Road is inviting Vauxhall owners past and present to visit www.vauxhallandi.co.uk, a microsite from the British manufacturer, which showcases a compilation of personal stories, anecdotes and unique photographs that share the memories and relationships people have with their Vauxhall cars.
The dealership is encouraging as many people in the local area as possible to contribute their very own drive-time tales, precious pictures and remarkable memories to the online compendium and play their part in uncovering Vauxhall’s history.
From babies born on back seats to wedding day transport tales, amazing road trips to all corners of the earth and anything in between, Vauxhall owners from the past and present day are being invited to submit the stories they wish to share.
Steve Hammill, Sales Manager at Skurrays Vauxhall, explains: “Many memories are made from experiences owning and travelling in Vauxhall cars and we’re lucky to hear some of these from our customers here at the dealership.
“Vauxhall and I, which was launched to mark the brand’s 110th Anniversary, is not simply a testament to Vauxhall cars, but to the way in which they have touched people’s lives. Since then, the site has become a hosting ground for personal stories that celebrate the people who have loved and driven Vauxhall cars from the earliest days of the company right through to the current day.
“We’re keen for the site to feature lots of tales from people in the local area and so urge the community to cast their minds back and unearth some real gems of tales!”
All those who upload their stories to Vauxhall and I before 31 December 2014 will be entered into a prize draw to win £1,000*.
Everyone can read stories and share their own through the Vauxhall and I platform at www.vauxhallandi.co.uk.
