    Well done guys!

    Its a 1971 Mercury Cougar XR-7 with a very thirsty 351 Cleveland in it!

    Always loved the muscle cars when I was a kid and this seemed to fit the bill pretty well... really fancy a C3 Corvette next!
    The last one I had a few years ago.







    And chasing down FORD's :lol: :lol:



    A FORD will never sound this good :D

    What a fantastic looking machine!

    I had a poster of one on my bedroom wall as a 10 year old and when i dont need a 4 seat classic then a "StingRay" is next on the list!!

    My father bought it in 1972 and it sat in a shed collecting dust for 25+ years before I restored it recently.

    Stunning! I seem to be drooling over quite a lot of metal in this excellent post.

    Would a 1988 Ford Orion 1.6i Ghia be classed as a classic yet?

    Thank you, I'll try and find some pics of what it looked like when I bought it, and then a few that the restoration firm sent me as they were working on her.

    Great thread

    Rubbish timing though, as I just sold this a week last Saturday...



    Happily the money was in liquid form for less than seven days before being converted into a watch!

    Re: Classic Cars In Pictures

    I used to rally this Imp, which - despite the registration - was a 1963 model. It was tuned to the limit; 410 cam, knife-edge crank, 1040cc, double-wedge machined-from-blank head, electric water pump, sintered clutch, Tran-X dog box. Unfortunately it was just too peaky, getting of the line was a nightmare (it wouldn't take full throttle below 5000rpm...), plus the gearbox broke regularly, despite a strengthened casing, a billet machined muff coupling and the strongest gearset available for Imp use..

    I decided to build it into a lighter body, so I put this together (Clan Crusader). It was previously a friend's road car - he had once spun it on a roundabout and overtaken someone backwards off the exit road! It was slightly more reliable (not much, though) and when I was offered the ex Greenergy Citroen ZX at a bargain price I sold it..

    If that SAAB V4 is a K Plater then I might just be a previous owner :D . If so its great to see the old girl again.

    This is just one of several T/A's I had a few years ago. 6.6 with WS6 package which included 8" snowflakes and 4WDB's

    Gold was actually a rare colour for 78's & 79's

    Slightly yes - Bilstein shock all round. Needs to come down a little more at the rear.
    Also has a RUF strut brace, custom ECU, MAF conversion & twin outlet stainless exhaust along with 7 & 9 inch Turbo Fuchs.
    All the mods were done in period, back when she was nearly new n Munich.
