Yes, sadly it was sold a few years ago - too big for my wife to drive. It was a great touring car although the 'Estate' space was very mediocre.
These days I have this.....

...which is also a great tourer - and the boot space is about the same as in the 300C Estate! :);)

Lucky enough to own a 70 Mustang in 73 and a 66 Chevelle in the 80's but would have to get in the loft for photos of that. Not sure if a Triumph America counts 🤠

I love Chevelles, i would so love a 1970, i wouldnt get it past the rear corner of the house to get it in the garage though.. i could always knock the house down i s'pose.
That would be like saying my Moto Guzzi California counts. :LOL:

I'll probably get hate mail and banned from here but in the 90's I needed space for my C3 and nobody wanted the Chevelle so I took the motor and box out and it went to the scrapyard 😞

I still cant get used to the idea that Opel/Vauxhall have switched from being General Motors to being part of the Chrysler group.
And Holden are no more, RIP (they switched from domestic production to rebadged Opel's for a short while before being laid to rest).
Times they are a changing.

Derek - the Opel/Vauxhall 'switch' is far worse than you think - its actually the PSA Peugeot group that have taken them over - the 'irritating' advert that now says "Vauxhall, a british brand since 1908 (or something similar)"
