Any cool rides that your parents had..My dad liked audis in the 70's i remember them being smelly and always making me sick.. then he got these magic rubber things that hung down at back of car which strangly cured the smell...a placebo or magic?...the 80's was the mk3 escort which never smelled and without magial rubber thingabebobs.....One of my dads mk3 escorts was sold to john kenney who was humping michael barrymore when pool incident happened....It was some years before humping that he bought the car... so i have no grim thoughts of the car being used for celebrity uphill gardening...i remember the reg number it was fvk 320w..

My dads first car in the late 60's was a Hillman Minx then he had a Mini van. Vauxhall Viva in the early/mid 70's with a mk2 Capri 3.0ltr company car. Rovers in the 80's.
