Old car wheels....

On the way back from ordering my goslings, we passed a place that had a load of old wheels stacked up.....and I correctly identified them as being old XR3i wheels....

Anyone remember them cars? I was a teenager at the time and all the boy racers had to have one of those, though it was a bit more upmarket round our way to have an XR2.....

Man, those 'Go Faster' stripes had all the girls lusting after the lads!

Mini Coopers in my time

Couldn't beat a MK.I Lotus Cortina or the Mk.II 3litre Capri.

Ahh, I remember one or two with Capri cars....



We have a Mini Clubman in the lock-up. My husband inherited it from a aged uncle, its only done 36,000 and its a 1978 model. It's going to be his retirement project to do up, as the sills and A frames have corroded somewhat.....

HIDEOUS colour though, called 'Mustard', reminds me of puke-green...

I loved the mk2 escorts....had a 1600 sport but always dreamed of an RS.


I personally liked the XR3 rather than the i.......probably because i felt it more original.

Still look on ebay at the odd mk2 1600 ghia's........maybe one day.
