not sad at all Manix mate , no matter how good cars are getting or even if you look at our mondeos with all the full leather , heated this heated that , electric this etc etc etc , the saying will all ways stick with me ' You Cant Beat An Old School Ford ' , they are fantastic.

its not just Fords either , there are tones of old school cars i love , here is a few:

[color:red]MK2 Golf Gti 1.8i 8v[/color]


[color:red]Renault R5 - Turbo[/color]



[color:red]Ford XR2[/color]



[color:red]Alfa 75[/color]



[color:red]Pug 1.9 GTI[/color]



[color:red]Rover SD1[/color]



i could go on for days listing all the old school cars , and in my eyes for fun you cant beat them :L

V8 didnt come in just the vitesse model but were also available in S/SE and vanden plas.....other engines were the 6 cylinder 2300 and 2600.....vitesse models didnt appear till 82/83........
My mum had a 1983 A reg Vanden Plas 3.5 Auto. What a car! It was the first car I drove after I passed my test! Quite a step up from my instructor's 1.0 Micra! It met it's demise when a tree fell on it as my mum was driving to her work one morning during storms in 1992. :( Luckily my mum walked away with a fractured wrist.

Anyway, how did I miss this thread before?
Ghia X with (partial) ST kit.
