    Here on the Continent, the 78/79 winter was indeed Biblical. It started on Dec 30th and with some thaw periods in between, it lasted until March. Snow dunes, black ice. Roads closed. We lived on the...

    Here's another one that came up in my YT list (obviously, after the yesterday's one).

    I was searching YT for videos of the Ford Taunus/Ford Cortina (other thread) when I stumbled upon this. I guess that some of this parish are interested to have a look back in time. (The lady wearing...

    Back in the days they were on every street corner on the Continent. And now more or less extinct. I read on the Wiki page that it was sold as a Cortina in the UK; but I know that you could always...

    I would applaud you when you do the trip around the period of Paris Roubaix. You can be lucky with nice weather, you could be in for a very tough trip when it's cold and wet. Flandres is not 'cosy'....
