Suzuki SA310:Launched (from memory) approximately 1983, the predecessor to the Swift, used essentially the same shell as the Swift (which we got '85/'86?), but powered by a 1-litre triple....That's all I know really :oops: Except that they were charming little cars....My Dad ran SJ410s/413s around this time, and had a SA310 as a courtesy car at one point....Think it's what gave me my love of 3-cyl engines! 8)

What the hell is that behind the Cherry? I'm guessing its Korean, but there is something about it which is just wrong. And I like it. cover it up with your finger from the rear wheel-arch forwards, and it looks Niva-esque

It's a Capri! Come on, give us some credit... :P Love the '60s Chevy. Always looked like they were trying to relive the styling excesses of the '50s but knew they wouldn't quite get away with it so tried to tone it down a bit. That rear end styling is still insane though - and I love the rocket motif donw the side. That 100E is not nice. For some reason it just doesn't work. They've taken what was a bland but cute shape and made it bland and ugly. Still, to each their own... Wonder what running gear it's based on - I'm sure the 100E wheelbase wasn't that long :? .

Agreed. Is it the roofchop that distorts its proportions?Mk2_Craig, you've gone shutter-happy recently haven't you?! Some good stuff there. Cherry's a goodun, two-tone bronze and gold, that's true class. Maybe it's auto too for top marks?

I think I've broken Autoshite.com by dumping a couple weeks' worth of spots onto the forum in one go :lol: The parents have broadband you see, and I don't... Work internet filter no longer allows me on the site either :(Didn't think to check the Cherry's gearlever, it is however a 1.3SGL according to the tailgate badge. I haven't had time to cross check the registrations against DVLA's online database but it looked ot have been out of use for some time. Likewise the old 100E (What was the difference between Anglia, Popular and Prefect by the way??) although the tax disc on this one had expired something like 1996.

I've got a large number of photos awaiting transfer from my now-erratic cameraphone and the work digicam, but owing to PC issues they'll have to wait for now. Time being, here are some I took earlier in the year but don't seem to have posted before now (taken at an oval track somewhere in deepest darkest Englandcestershire). Hope of interest

W.T.F. is going on with the 100E? It's as rotten as a pear, so either it was done a long time ago and has been neglected, or someone's done a lot of work on a shell which doesn't look like it'll ever see another MoT!

From my travels this last couple of months. Some of these are from Ford Fair, and rather than bore the tits off everyone with photos of Essex tin that have already appeared on a thousand forums elsewhere, I've restricted myself to the standout stuff (wish I'd spent an hour or two in the car parks instead of bouncing off chav scum families inside the show).

I had a matchbox....sorry got a matchbox model of the Dodge Daytona, that one looks like a facelift model. Looks like they let the work experience guy design the front. With a spatula and a korean applicance catalogue.

The car looks better in its earlier guise. Only just mind.

I think they only used Dacia on those over here because the name was already familiar, Aro was the Romanian builder of 4x4's and they sold a few of their bigger 4x4's over here in the 70's, they were built under licence in Portugal as the Portaro....I'll get my coat

Just selfishly making sure that this topic doesn't fall off the bottom of the board... "Leicestershite" seems to be a broken link now! :(

EDIT: oh go on then.
Have a shot of a mk2 Fiesta in that lovely flat blue colour the name of which I still haven't managed to determine, seen in an Edinburgh street a good seven or eight years ago.
