Re: Capri Perana

If its not the actual car that Basil Green built then how could it be a Perana? Doesnt the Perana name imply that it came out of his shop? This is a perana drivetrain but not a perana car.Quite simple i think. Could still be a good car though.Just call it what it is.

Re: MY FORD CORTINA 30S

Lekker Glen. I see youve got the look just right. Those twin tilt sunroofs may not be cool now but they were a must-have back in the day. Remember the quad headlight conversions? :lol: :lol: :lol: Heres what mine looked like back then. complete with those funky sunroofs. ;) ;)

Re: XR6 Rally Cortina

Interesting. I did not know that. I'm sure that intercepter would have brought more spectators to the rallies. Like the straight six skylines did. Six cylinders sucking through triple carbs. :D :D :D

Re: Grosvenor V8 Sierra

I have seen at least one Grosvenor sierra v8. A white car in cape town. IMHO they are not as good as an xr8 but still a nice car. The engine is mounted further forward because they used an aftermarket sump rather than the fox unit in the xr8 and so the waterpump wont fit and they had to use an essex...
