    Unfortunately not, Ray. In the days before digital, people tended to take less photos than now. Somewhere I've got prints of my first NEW car (a Capri), and my old Humber Sceptre, I'll try to dig them out and scan them sometime

    Talking about modded cars.
    I was in the car park at one of my jobs yesterday...when this older Merc came in......and I thought....every bloody tacky extra from haulfrauds has been purchased and fitted to this.
    Then an older gentleman about 90 - a bit younger than you Pete, got out the drivers seat and walked away.

    I silently laughed as this is probably be his pride and joy.
    To be honest, the car is in really good condition for its age.
