Re: Who Remembers?

The one nearest me (Red Lodge) has quite a high turnover, no idea how long the stacks stay there before they are crushed and shredded, but they were all mostly complete. Great fun squeezing between them and crawling inside them looking for a suitable jack... like something from a computer game. And ...

For example, it states on page 101 that the plastic side trims inside the boot "were always black"....
Perhaps grey is the new black? :lol:

Re: Capri brochure "photoshoping"

So back in the day, what, you'd have snapped a picture of the badge / number plate / wheels of a different car in a similar plane, developed the pictures, then stuck them over the pertinent parts of the car in the brochure, then feathered in the details a bit and sent it to the printers?
