Yeah a lot of S.Afrika's cars came from Oz...they even got the XY GTs and a promotional aardvark trailer You are right, a Corty with the standard 250 crossflow could pull harder than a boy with a centrefold.

I was just about to mention that one!

Our Mk-5 Cortinas had a 3.0-litre in it's largest form I believe, but I think they put a 2.8 in some, too! I love the Mk-5's, I've always wanted one, problem is, they're few and far between these days......They bring back a few memories, too!

im thinking of getting an old Ford Consul mkII or a Ford 100E, really old, nice when customised (not big wheels etc, just Mini lite wheels, chrome bumpers etc) and putting it on my dads insurance

Kind of...I guess. The Consul was basically a Mk1 Granada/Cortina I believe

Mk 5 Cortina:


Mk 2 Granada:
