Up until the late 70s Vauxhall models shared no (outside) bodies with Opel. This Viva was never sold as Opel. The Opel Kadett might share parts with it but looked very different.
The future ain’t what it used to be.

I was referring to the white car in the last picture. It looks like the 1965 Opel Rekord I had. It was not a USA car. I have no idea what it was doing here. My brother took it in trade on another car. :)

Another dreary day here in Zurich. Looked like it was the original owner driving the car, it seemed like he barely saw over the steering wheel. Maybe he‘s had the car since new.

Saw these two in Cyprus last week. Never realised that the Jag Mk2 has so much chrome.
