  • You hardly realise as you go about your daily business, just how the scene on our roads has changed. Looking here, Austin Maxi, Morris Ital/Marina, Ford Cortina, Capri, Mark one Escort also by Ford in one of these pic’s I think. Not to mention the old Rover.Really takes you back to see cars such as these now.
