Great pics. Shows the slight grill difference between the '64 and '65 models. I had a Cortina in 1965, EUK123C just a 1300 in white but by the time I had blacked out the grill taken off the wheel trims and driven it like an idiot it was all but a Lotus.

This iconic car doesn't look much by today's standards but it was to motoring then what the Beatles were to music, life changing.

As was the Mini Cooper & "S".

I used to be surprised that I was still surprised by my own stupidity, finding it strangely refreshing.
Well I don't now.
I'm over it!

Check out how thin and sparse the rollcage is. Brave guys back then.

The question is... how do we get our slots to handle like that for ultimate realism?!!!

Looks like they really set the back ends up fairly soft.

Looks like Jim Clark is the only one of them with opposite lock.

But then again, Jim was a bit special.
Was at Hockenheim, that faithful day in April.

Looks like he was well & truly in the process of murdering the apex while he was at it. Tight as can be was that line.
