Re: Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars Series 2

I did learn that 82 model 2.0s had lazer striped Recaro's with fishnets which was a new one on me, I thought most of the post - Carla trimmed ones were just sports seats like my 1984 S has. Checked a 1982 brochure and it was right though but it seems it was 1982 year models only. They weren't even ...

Re: Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars Series 2

Thought the Capri looked great, liked the fact that Drew wanted it to look original, with the top spec Recaro’s etc. Although he threw a childish tantrum (along with that headrest).

Re: Brooklands Ford Meet 1977'

I’ll take the Cortina Ghia & the Datsun Laurel please. Great to see these cars new & hear their prices, that BMW as now, must have been a fortune against the fords & opels. Nice find.
