Especially since they demolished a multi story car park with an empty restaurant on top.

The really good ideas never catch on for some odd reason.

 

Btw, there seems to be a Datsun Cedric estate sneaking into the last of the tall ship pics.

Just spent a couple of hours looking through this thread while listening to music.

Many thanks to all posters, very entertaining.

There was a time in the mid 80's I seemed to spend half my time as Coach Driver in N newcastle or surrounding area.

So a lot of what was redeveloped I knew.

^ Pic posted by Jim Bell² earlier today with the 83-ish Sierra and the 1961-ish Consul Mk2 is a cracker.
The Consul is only about 22 years older (like comparing a 1996 car with something new today, and a 1996 car is still quite a new car in my mind), yet look at the massive difference in styling.

Multiply those 1975 car-ad prices by about 8 for 'current 1975' price.

Just new to this , but , the reason why I joined was principally after reading this thread. Made me very homesick and brought back so many memories of my old homestead and blasting around the streets of Newcastle in various mechanised child bins. Superb stuff, Jim.
