The Lancer was first registered in june 1975, so that makes it one of the earliest sold here. I spotted the fab F150 several times on the move, think it's indeed a builders' car.

Everyone else drove vans & trucks and laughed at us...

This was a nice surprise inside though:

Long time since the last update, I guess the flow of imports has stopped a bit, except for the smelly and rusty Merc diesel 200s that give classic cars a bad name. Well, not all rusty, but the nice ones will be in a year - people buy them for 3 to 8 grand (really!) for 'cheap' motoring and then let them rot to hell in a few years.

 

1974 204:

1985 Polo Van & 1984 626 automatic:

Lovely 1970 VolksWorkhorse:

Gorgeous 1974 504 coupe:

One for Hirst? 1975 Ford 'Granada US' according to our dvla:

And to top it all off, a 1980 Manta auto on lpg, with some er, accessories:

I guess the owner works either in the university or the associated hospital, I see it most days now. :lol:

Cheers!We had a gig with blood red shoes in Bardens Boudoir (iirc) and with another band we played with cat on form at The Garage in London a few years before that; guy in my (now dormant) band had contacts with a lot of UK bands.

oh ok, the lovely laura-mary is my mates ex, and one of my ex's took lots of their promo photos. i always thought they were a bit rubbish though.

Nice coincidence! Can't say I have any of their work at home... but I did enjoy them all live - although the adventure of playing abroad did cloud my judgement somewhat probably!

pbottomley, re the Schoolbank camper - a bank is in this case a bench, it's promoting a website where you can look for people you went to school with, although your explanation is more fun!
