This article makes me pine for the old homologation specials. Not just from Ford..
Being required to make a certain number of units for the civilian market created many opportunities for drivers and collectors. Who remembers that the original GT40 was required to carry a spare tire because, it was, after all, a "street car"? :huh:
Owned a Mk2 Cortina GT...our first new car.
The Cortina is a Lotus I have wanted for some time. They are valued very highly in Europe, somewhat less so in North America. I would seriously consider buying one if I saw one in original specification and very good condition for sale in this country.
I love the fact that it can hold four adults comfortably and has a serious racing pedigree.
