Front door looks more Ford Cortina than range rover with the rake of the screen.

Yeah, I’d say mostly a P100 Cortina pickup with added buggering about with.

Now here is a serious challenge as I give up to what this pink thing is but I have a nagging feeling I may have seen it years ago in a magazine and by that I mean over 35 years ago.

Spotted in Norton-in-the-Moors north of Stoke.

I have looked at every panel for the donor vehicle but even the doors have me confused as to what this kit/camper car was built from. Couldn't get the reg.

That, ladies and gentlemen is a Spartan Starcraft kit car. :Old:

(Based on a Cortina).

Worth a look.

The Hollywood Garage | Facebook

No photo description available.

Robert Mitchum with his new Porsche 911 Targa, 1969. Mitchum took delivery of the car in Stuttgart, Germany, and then traveled around Europe until he made his way to Ireland. In Ireland, Mitchum filmed "Ryan's Daughter." A role he was paid $870,000 to "come out of retirement" for. While in Ireland, Mitchum stayed in a small 11-room hotel that he had entirely to himself. If the front desk phone rang while he was there, Mitchum would answer it and make reservations for future guests.

This piece of Russian insanity is worth a watch if you know anything about engines, amazingly it worked and didn't explode into many pieces.

Rover P6 estate cars (two of them) plus an SDI Rover. Obviously a fanatic.

Pretty sure that owner of all those is a Youtuber

Thanks for bringing this bloke to my attention, he's got a fantastic heap of vids there, all informative, no-nonsense, down-to-earth and most importantly of all, no annoying bloody MUZAK!!

This Maxi vid brings back a lot of memories. My dad had a burgundy sort-of-colour T reg (79) Maxi back in 1986 or thereabouts. He was really happy with it because it was the most modern car he'd ever been able to afford at the time, and he was aged about 45 back then so he'd already owned quite a few! He insured me to drive it as a learner (which didn't work out!). Bog standard vinyl seats but sooo comfortable as I recall, and the ride in general was so damn smooth for a car of that era.

Funny, remember these as being a fairly sturdy saloon, but compared to modern cars it just looks like a funny little toy car, hardly bigger than a trabant.
