    Yes - I remember a red one and a black one near where I lived as a kid but there were quite a few yellow one's......it was the schwinging dutch 70's man

    If you chopped the front it would look like a later Saab. Great looking cars at the time. You only sat in the back for a quick lift though.

    Never in a million years did they look like a Saab. Only of the angle of the dangle in that picture, maybe.

    Put your hand over the bonnet. The wheel and back end fucks it up a bit, but it's there.

    Want a car cutting, just give us a shout ;)

    That's the limited edition 280 Brooklands, I had one of those.

    Wish I still had it, a low mileage one would probably be worth £30-40k right now. One with 100,000 miles on it is up for sale at £23k on pistonheads at the moment.

    By the time they got to that model the engine was way better than the chassis - the chassis effectively was an early 70's or even late 60's design - the engine in the Brooklands model in my opinion deserved better. Then Ford replaced it with the Probe ha ha ha ha - fuck me what a decision - still Clarkson thought it was beautiful at the time #Mazdainaposhfrock

    Even he couldn't fucking think a Ford Probe was decent - most are "classics " worth about £25 now lol

    The Probe was aptly named, disgrace of a car.

    The Tickford Turbo Capri was a handful, drove one that a mate had a couple of times, all that power and shite handling, imagine what it was like in the wet?! haha!
