I once bought a classic for £35.....it was a Consul Classic that the guy was going to scrap. I ran it for 6 months before it gave up the ghost :)
Make your mind up, was it a Consul or a Classic. They were two different models of Fords back in the nineteen fifties and sixties. I know......... I used to work on them.

He is correct. It was the Ford Consul Classic.

There was also a Ford Consul Capri.

Well, roger me backwards with a pineapple.

I did my apprenticeship with a Ford Main Dealer, Willments, the garage on the round-about by Twickenham Rugby Ground, (although it is no longer Willments or Ford now), as I said, I worked on lots of Corsairs, some Capris and a few Classics. We were never told that they were to be called "Consuls".

Our fun filter won't let me write the rest of what I wanted to say.

New US cop cars - dodge chargers look MEAN!
Yes, but they still can't corner.

I bloody hate American cars. They are universally shite

I'd sooner have one of these sat on my drive than any European car. :)
Why,these can't go around corners either,the Dodge in Bullit had to slow down to keep it and the PONY !!!!!!!!car in shot,and as stated before Dodge dont go round corners well either. :p

Why would you want a beautiful car like that simply to rag it?

My bold, which I find quite ironic, how can you Dodge in a straight line, surely you need to go round corners :D

The article has already been edited because Chris Evans ( !4 May) has just paid £12m ($20m) for a '63 Ferrari. At the rate he's buying them the whole article will have to be rewritten in a couple of weeks! :eek:
