Cheers, probably one of those, it looks indeed slightly less angular than the A111.

Quality spots :D I took pic of one of those Seat 124/1430's in Menorca in 97, god knows where it is now, they used to be everywhere there, but disappeared very suddenly at the end of the 1990s :(

Cheers! I had it down in blackpool at the weekend for the Ford show on the front. its my daily at the mo as the Cortina is broken and the Probe's out of MOT.

Got a set of side stripes for it from the capri club which the missus has made a nice job of applying i think and tidied up the door bottoms with a halfords aerosol... on the down side its started to whine a bit in fifth gear... tried topping up the fluid but no joy. hopefully it will whine for a while before it goes pop.

Fantastic pic! Hard cornering on crossplys while smoking some Rough Shag in your pipe must surely be outlawed by the Health & Safety Nazis these days.

Capri looks good, Dave!

Slightly alarming that a car that looked as tidy as your ex 'Tina did can actually be so far gone that it's in danger of being too far gone! :shock: And what's the future got in store for the one which left you on the truck? Not too promissing, I'm guessing?

Black one wasnt as good as it looked... I got it from a cortina forum member who'd been given it for free after it had been in a barn for years.He said he'd done a full "resto" on it and put it up for sale... asn the bloke was a regular forum member and held in quite high regard on the board i bought it sight unseen.Drove 200 odd miles to get it and picked it up late at night... made about ten miles before the engine went bang and it came home courtesy of the AA.He hadnt even changed the oil, just given it a blow over and a highly suspect MOT... oh well lesson learned.A shame too as it had a full history with one owner before he got it and rare factory special order black with no vinyl roofBlue one has a good future.. the guy was a cortina fan and bought some spares off me as well... says he is going to use it as a daily after a bit of work.

First Pic of the marina was in hamilton i think, but it was a year or so ago... the second one was coming out of the Kingsway East retail Park in Dundee.. yesterday lunchtime!Those Rapiers are stunning looking cars... that one was actually spied by my missus while she was working in London who sent me it as a picture message with "is this shite?" above it :lol:

he dropped a load of unsubtle hints................but the twat is a thick skinned C**t, most of the Cortina world thinks he is a god, we know better, never met anyone that was happy with what they have bought of him...............I ended up putting replacment engine in it, sorting most of the suspension out, then it decided to chuck the gearbox out the pram.................feckin ungratefull motor :lol:

Its not clear in the pics, but this metro has a big "57" sticker on the side, and a ring of "57"'s round its wheel trims for some strange reason.

This surprised the hell out of me when it went flying through Markinch station for no apparent reason at the weekend, followed by the union of south africa later in the day. Saw it again when i was in Dundee later in the day.
