  1. You even squeezed in a Ford Capri (mk3 if’I’m correct) on picture number 10 😉

  2. Ford UK really made some awesome cars, and contributed enormously to Ford’s prestige in the racing world throughout the 60s and 70s.

  3. Yep the number is a Capri 😉

    There is loads of escorts on my flickr and you had to take the capri :p

  4. whoops! thank you both for the correction. @julien, i was trying to look for one going sideways 🙂

  5. actually, this is one of my favorite images from you ever. so badass.

  6. That one is sideways. My boss has 2 of those. He owns an ex WRC escort wearing bastos colors.
