Ford Cortina

You know, I think my father actually owned the same model, in a brown colour, the german version Taunus in 1985.;)
But, he also owned the original Ford Cortina (white) in 1967, when I was born. An absolutely flashy sports car for that period of time and of course a source of eternal envy in a country filled with Ladas, Trabants and Skodas.;)

I remember a chocolatey brown Mk 5 Cortina from the 80's Zuzana, and I also have great memories of the Mark 1. I was working in a factory in London and my best friend was Pakistani. He had a beautiful old Mk 1, white with a green stripe in the middle and a souped up 2000cc engine, lots of clocks and of course a great(for the time) stereo. We used to drive around West London for hours listening to the music, admiring the sights - and the beautiful girls...

I can just imagine Zuzana and her sister sitting in the back of the Taunus as their Dad & Mum drove through Stare Mésto - a lot of envy glances I would say!

I think we had a Cortina at one point too, but how many Marks it had escapes me. :)
