    Wow, that's a blast from the past. My dad brought a Ventora in 76 brand new on a M plate. What a car 4 speed box with overdrive. I used to go out and sit in (only about 10) and pretend to drive it putting my foot down and slipping overdrive on, wonder where I learnt that from. It was a nice green colour finnaly went when it had sunshine front wings, he changed it for a MkV Cortina 2.0 ghia in silver.

    The Chevette HSR was one of my Dad's projects, when he worked for VX. He worked with Lotus and Cosworth on the 16V heads. Some of the later heads have his initials on -"CC" -to indicate a new casting design!
    My mate was involved in the Lotus Carlton project and I had a few passenger seat trips in some of the prototypes. Scary!
