Woooof! That Ford publicity shot of the Mk4 2.0S is wonderful. Deeply nice cars.

OK, some more spots.. bit of a rubbish collection this time, but thought I'd stick em up anyway...

Went on a road trip last weekend to the Cortina Day show at Symonds Yat.. 1200 miles in one weekend in my mk4 'tina, and she performed faultlessly.

Didnt see nearly as much shite as I was hoping...

In Taunton, ASDA car park...

Scabby posh - spec metro in same car park...

Lovely condition travelling queer LXi.. these are pretty much extinct in Scotland now, but there seemed to still be a fair few around the Bristol/Somerset area.. I spotted no less than four in one day

Old boy driving this special edition Cavalier Commander towards Bristol...

Posted Image

Took pictures of lots of cars at the COrtina Day show, but this was the Shiteiest.. needless to say I loved it.

Posted Image

Back in Scotland... Barried-up Capri in Dundee...

Posted Image

Polish Saab in Perth...

Posted Image

This little Anglia lives in a village called Scotlandwell in Fife.. It looks unused, but had a current tax disc

Posted Image

Just as I turned round having taken the Anglia pic.. this beauty rolled by...

Posted Image

Shite condition mk2 escort in Glenrothes...

Posted Image

another mk2 Cavalier.. bonus points for the white wheeltrims

Posted Image

Apologies for the poor quality of this pic.. it was taken on my phone camera at maximum zoom... these two have been perched up atop MacDonald Metals in Glenrothes for a good few years now.. there used to be a black moggy as well that I remember my primary five teacher driving when i was at school.. but it must have disintegrated.

Posted Image

Finally, this is a bit of a shite goldmine.. a garage that the owners closed down ten or so years ago which has a minefield of rotting shite around the back.. sadly these were the only pics I got as the landowner came out and chased me!
There are a couple of moggy travellers, and HB viva, a hillman hunter and a mk1 transit also taking root there

I really must pay more attention to the Classic Car press!! I'd have loved to have gone to the Cortina day, if I'd been aware such an event even existed!! Some nice looking other Fords in the background too, looks like a nice Consul Classic amongst them. I know they aren't in any way shite, but I for one would be interested in the rest of your pics, particularly if there's any particularly nice Mk 1s. :wink:

Anti static strips! my dads mk3 'scrote had one of these and the plastic hands on the boot, very classy :lol: http://cgi.ebay.co.u... ... 0116831681

Glad to see you followed my advice! I didn't realise I had so much influence! (I saw you were the winner of that auction for the plastic strips I muttered about!)

All it needs now are a couple of those strips of plastic that hang from the back of the car down to the ground like long thin mud flaps....think they were something to do with aiding travel sickness someone told me. Can't work out how but never mind!

If I told you I thought the car would look better painted bright pink, I hope you wouldn't oblige! :shock:

The ones with the silver trim round them are Mk4 grilles, although some people do stick them on mk5's. Doesn't signify anything really, all mk4's had them except the S which just has a black grille

O M G!!! I'd have been in heaven!! Somehow never realised what good looking cars these were at the time!! I had an Autumn Gold 2000E Mk 3 estate for a couple of years, which I absolutely loved, but it was killed off by terminal inner-sill rot, and holes around the chassis mountings for the rear suspension trailing arms. All repairable, but cost several times what the car was worth at the time. Shame. Repalced it with an Oyster Gold Mk 4 2000E saloon, which somehow didn't have quite the same charisma. That was replaced by my 1st R 25, and never looked back since!! Scrolling down through those pics, I almost had a little accident when the Consul Capri appeared. What stunning cars they are!!

That looks to be one of the last special edition Anglis's, they were based on the 123E 1200 super model and were offered in a choice of metallic gold or blue and were an 'end of line' special made on the run up to MK1 Escort launch, quite a rarity that :D

Always thought the Consul Capri would look good as a convertable, and only ever seen 1 done properly. Had a friend in the mid seventies who got as far as cutting the roof off one, but never got any further. My brother has a very sound one (not a convertable!!), been dry-stored for over 20 years as a future project when the kids are grown up.

Wartburg it is. We had them here in the late 70's, and called it a Wartburg Knight. They were pretty special as they were one of only two 3-cylinder cars available to us (Daihatsu Charade being the first). Almost always in bright orange, they smoked around for a few years until they all fell apart. Sounded like a clockwork toy.Until recently, they would be considered mainstream as a Mondeo in Hungary (if I have identified the reg properly)

Having the "high" numberplate was quite common on Cav's & Chevette's bac in the day, usually teamed with a tow-bar. Ritmo, being indiginous to my part of the world do you not recall this? Or are you as I suspect too young?

Of course! it should have the V A U X H A L L badge along the back. Didnt actually notice until you pointed it out though. When it was up on ebay last month i think he wanted about £1200 for it, which seemed a lot to me, but it is nice.

Why would it have to happen in Herts / Beds? Or is it more likely cos they would have rolled off the line at Luton? I'm 24 and I've seen my fair share of GM 1970s bread & butter cars! I don't recall seeing Cavs etc having the number plate raised....however I can recall seeing the odd one with the numberplate still underneath the bumper but shufted to the side a lá Alfa 156/147 but obviously at the rear! I can picture Avenger's with the number plate placed higher.....err what else?......I suppose anything where the numberplate usually sat beneath the bumper was susceptible! MkIII Cortina, Austin Allegro, MkI Carlton, Chevette, Viva HC, Austin Princess, Morris Marina (1st style), all the Pugs....205, 309 ,405......

It will be an import as far as I know PVs weren't ever sold here in RHD form.It also has one of the standard issue plates for pre 63 imports and cars that are plate raped (they are issued with plates from remote areas were there would have been little uptake of new cars at the time, so there are still a massive number of reg sequences to make use of) So they use numbers such as 'SL' 'SY' and 'FF' which at the time represented Clackmannanshire :? & Midlothian in Scotland and Merionethshire in Wales. So you'll get one of these Scottish or Welsh plates wherever you live between Lands End and John O'Groats.....**And talking of John O'Groats, 3 or 4 years ago my parents went on a driving holiday right round the coast of Scotland - East to West. They stopped at Dunnet Head which unlike John O'Groats is the most Northern Mainland point. All that is there is a Lighthouse and a public car park. It was about 9AM and the only other car in the car park apart from my Dad's Saab was an abandoned Volvo PV544. It was a left hooker and rotten as a pear, full of holes and stuffed full of junk. My Dad took a piccie of it for me (which I will try and find) as he knew it would interest me :lol: They came back about an hour later, after going for a walk, and my Dad's Saab was the only car there :!: The Volvo had gone :shock: :D :shock: :D** Ooops. Just realised Albert Pogweasel has mentioned this in another thread.
