Something much more mainstream - a Mk1 Mondeo. Not to mention its predecessors the Sierra and Cortina. For cars that were everywhere in their heyday they have all but vanished.

Sierra is my 'go-to' answer for this sort of thing.

 

Saw a Ford Probe the other day, which was quite a surprise.

Thats a good thing though.

They have an owners club you know?! People 'love' their Montego and Maestro's!

I still like that Rover  -  a real car  :)


Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

I love the fact that you need 3 ramps to load that Bond onto a trailer!

 

Morris Ital, Zephyr Zodiac and a Chrysler Avenger

 

I had a Morris Ital Van and my Dad had both of the other cars back when I was a Teen.

We had a Morris Ital and it was in Brown. It was affectionately referred to as 'the Turd' lol

Memory Lane - I've worked on every car pictured in this thread except one!  And owned several.

Ha! I managed to keep your throwaway on the road, despite the PO butchery.

Montego saloons; estates I see very rarely but never the saloons. If you see an SD1 they're often in very good nick now. +1 for the Probe, I had one and it was my favourite car until I got the Esprit, probably about as rare now?

Citroen XM?

Still see the Corolla over here occasionally. The Vanden Plas, not really, though a friend of mine in WA has one he wishes to restore.

A lot of the cars you guys mention did not come here with those names (if at all). FWIW I have never seen a Sierra on the road.

Other than that, Esprits, Elises, Exiges. :detective:

Mate they are Alfa's from the 80's/90's. They were rotted out and in a scrap heap within 5 years!
