  3. That was one in wicker, I must go at wrong time.
  4. The royals bring in the tourism , if your in the principality of London. Everytime Sheffield council has another scheme to waste money/bring chaos to the city they role out the "it,ll bring in tourism/ benefit the residents line. Witness student games,supertram,Euro cup,etc,etc.
  5. I'm sure I live in a different universe to you lot as no matter when or where I go hot wheels & matchbox are vertually unfindable. Local Poundland this teatime still only seem to stock some kind of wooden myfist hot wheels type of thing. While rest seem to have only a handful of unwanted orphans Tesco seems to have a few five packs. Dunno why I bother checking.
  6. Van looks like it might be an imp based commer cob. Yes with black boot panel will be a GT.
  7. No the bull shifters always get the prize.
  8. Chevette would've been slant 4 16v. Notable fords Inc V6 transits, lotus cortinas (Inc some 4dr mk2's) MK1 escort Mexico( again Inc 4drs) ,RS200. 4wd MK4 zephyr 's. most STD fords.
  9. No the principality of London will be the rest of the country will carry on as normal.
  10. Try parking like this on some local bigwigs property & I bet there's loads plod/court can do about it.
  11. You can guarantee they'd go mental if you did same to them & they'd get away with any retaliation.
  12. Why would ford Germany do this???? These conversions where done here by several companies with slot more than 8 & I'm sure more than 1 survives.
  13. But they don't apply I've you've got one of these. Same as on the road.
  14. Don't suppose you've got the red ford F-150 lightning in those hot wheels? As never managed to get one.
  15. That car (a 2.3 Ghia) was thought to be a pre production model or modified MK4 as the series was filmed in early summer for broadcast over Christmas. So a couple of months before launch but ready for free primetime advertising a couple of months post launch. As the estate was basically only new bumpers, frt wings grille/lights & seats, h vac.It was easy to coble together from a MK4. But it has several anomalies for even a pre production/pilot Mk5, no tape stripe on lower doors, MK4 door cards & in at least one scene the door mirrors appear to have no remote mechanism or with the front windows fully closed ( as there possibly mk 4 doors/windows & would interfere with the glass ( stopping it closing) . Also unlike all the saloons (not easy to disguise from a MK4) with this reg sequence (June/July 79) it never appears in any road-test reports or sales literature/promotional material.
  16. Loads of how to make garages etc on YouTube
  17. Those are the frt/rear side marker lights.
  18. There was also a 2.8i in some late MK1 Granada's on the continent lowest spec was the 1.7 cologne V4. South African MK2 Granada's had the 3.0 Essex V6 as did Sierra's.
  19. I remember the Merc SL phone seem to recall a testerossa too.
  20. I was once told there was a red fire chief version, but never seen anything in print re it.
