British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Something not quite right about the Neo RS. Nothing to do with the body kit adds ons. Having owned at least two 1:1 MkIIIs - one a Gold 3 door 1.6GL and the other a white 5 door 1.6GL I'd say the Neo's front windscreen is slightly 'off'.

I would also say that Green Capri is unusual in having bumper over riders. I suspect they might have been on the optional extras list in 1969.

Another Vangaurds Ford set. I think this one was issued in 2003 to coincide with the Ford Centennial.

Great looking models! ;)

In my collection's thread I have an area for American Fords, and one for European ones, and I've always wondered where to place my GT40s. And, I ended up placing them with the American Fords.

So, are they considered as European Fords? :?

What do you mean by that, Ian? Were there some non-original ones?

MkV was a 40 chassis UK 'continuation' run by Safir and JW engineering. Lots of fibreglass replicas abounded throughout the later years, KVA and GTD spring to mind. At a classic car show in the 'kit car' section I recently saw a white GT40 with a 1968 registration. I had a very close look as it seemed very convincing. I'm not sure what part of it allows the use of a 1968 registration. Now that we no longer have tax discs dispalyed in windscreens one can't immediately tell who the manufacturer is.

Comparison of Rally and Street Versions of IXO's Sierra RS Cosworth

The same model, but oddly the windshield wipers on the rally car are set up for RHD, although both cars are LHD.
