  5. The then new, now long closed, Epsom High Street branch in 1982. Two J reg Vauxhalls in the car park that would have been quite old even then, but the Metro was almost brand new: Efficient parking in the street outside - three small cars in two spaces!
  6. Epsom Kiln Lane 1994, including a Renault 14!
  7. What a gold mine! Crawley town centre, 1970s - there is still a Sainsbury's in this block but I think it's now smaller with other shops taking up the rest of the space. Haywards Heath 1991 when both store and the Fiesta were new:

  9. As far as I know, the early C had the full bumper and full wheel trims, but was later downgraded to metal bumper and hub caps. EDIT - This video is all about a slightly later 1.1C and the rear bumper is discussed at around 14 minutes in.
  10. 196. 1985 BMW M6 M635 CSi Seen outside a BMW dealer in Finchley, North London. I have no idea why I failed to get the whole car into the photo! Offered for sale in 2014 with the following description: "This delightful UK supplied BMW M635 CSi has covered a mere 50,755 miles from new with a total of three owners. The car was first registered on the 19th October 1985 and purchased by the first owner from H.E. Averill and sons in Norwich. After 18 months the car was sold to L M T garages in Cardiff, where it was purchased by the second keeper who owned the car for over 27 years. He had it serviced with LMT Newport every year right up until 2004. Following 2004 it was serviced and looked after by a local specialist. Having only covered less than 4,000 miles in the last ten years...
