Where in the vid? That's really interesting, how did that come about back in 1982? 

From around the time when Channel 4 first went on air. Four whole channels of TV choice, imagine that :-)

This vid gives the general impression that the Cortina Ghia had electric sunroof and windows. And that it could float in air. Fucking liars. Maybe float in air over a humpback bridge at 85mph.

They did look good in silver though.

^ Reminds me of a story my dad told me. My cousin was born on the morning of Christmas eve 1967 and my uncle 'may have had some celebratory refreshment' at lunchtime. On the way home in his little Bedford HA van he clipped a kerb on a quiet roundabout at slow speed and put the van onto it's side in the middle of the road. Someone went into the nearby pub for help and half a dozen blokes came running out. They lifted the van and got it back onto it's wheels. It eventually started and he drove off home, he didn't even get out of the van the whole time. He had the van for a few years after that. (It did look a bit battered on the passenger side).

I can't imagine what it sounded like when he toppled it over as he had his drum kit in the back.
