And the car...

As you'll gather (with luck and patience) from photographer Northey's rantings, the Cortina GT we borrowed from Ford for the trip went beautifully. What we most wanted to try was the newly strapped-down rear suspension, but we reckoned the outing would give us a chance to prove Ford's comprehensive ventilation system as well

Ford Consul Cortina 1500cc saloon was bad enough. Ford Consul Cortina 1500cc saloon modified by Lotus was even worse. But Ford Consul Cortina 1500cc Automatic saloon modified by Lotus modified by Borg Warner is too long a name for any car. So we'll stick to Automatic Lotus Cortina.
