Tickford Advert

Love 'em or loathe 'em (opinion seems pretty evenly divided on these), the Tickford Capri is a very striking car. And one of the world's fastest cars? Didn't realise that. Original advert which I saw recently, below -

Thanks Jason. I know, quite bizarre isn't it, to think that any Capri was once one of the world's fastest cars!

Hi Paul,
Great find. Of course, this was from back in the day when the manufacturers could mention speed, instead of emissions or NCAP ratings, in the adverts. I miss those days....

You sound like me Andrew :) Yes, can you imagine now, a car advert boasting about how fast you can go!
