Clobber him! I like the Cortina MK5 the best, preferably in some kind of dartboard/trim rings spec like the one the beardy bloke steals in Day of the Triffids.

Look at this, black-painted bottom half, pound shop wheeltrims and privacy glass, certainly adds a real air of class.

I have got a lot of love for these, they may be blue-chip shite but they are roomy with a good driving position, excellent ride quality and decent zip and economy. The late ones even seem to have reasonably robust valvegear. They make a great daily, in fact I might have a dabble on this.

The late ones even seem to have reasonably robust valvegear.

There was a modification to them in, I think, 1983 to sort out the rattly valvegear.

I have an early Sierra brochure on the way in order for me to confirm this, but as far as I remember the base models had no head restraints but could be ordered at extra cost.

Going back to the point of the amazing SIERRA BASE! My Sierra brochure has arrived and I can confirm the following: "The car illustrated is a 5-door saloon in Cardinal Red. Option fitted at extra cost is 'A' frame head restraints". So there you have it, no head restraints for the povvo-spec scummers. Also, you get an ashtray but no cigarette lighter! Plus, would you like your wipers to have intermittent wipe? Tough luck, sunshine. Some other choice quotes: "From outside, you'll recognise it by its special wheels and different grille and bumper treatment. The whole nose section is dark grey." "It's available with either the 1.3 OHC or 1.6 OHC engines which give it a very lively performance. Alternatively, you could order the diesel engine."

I like that. Should go like the clappers with a 1289cc engine too - my 12 was nippy enough and a 4 must be a fair bit lighter.

What's the old motor in the background next to the Jazz?

If it's an Austin it'll be an A50, going on its size compared to the Jazz. I was hoping it'd be something more obscure like a Simca Aronde or something. '50s cars are not really my forte.

These "Merkur" Scorpios are incredibly rare here. I always wanted one. Pity I'm so broke -- I'd scoop this one up immediately.

Especially as it's the "winner of multiple auto show awards." In particular I think the "Best detailed Merkur" award is hugely impressive. The field must have been loaded with competition.

Hmmmm. Body is tidy but the interior is as worn-looking as you'd expect for the age, certainly nothing special.A Granada Scorpio of the same condition/vintage would be, what, £750 tops? And it wouldn't have that god-awful front end treatment, I know the US has different lighting laws but that looks like a parts-bin special, nothing quite fits.
