Austin Allegro: The Car's The Star Part Two
Part two of Quentin Willson's look at the Allegro. Apologies for the poor quality 3/4 of the way through but this is due to a damaged tape. The silence mid way through is due to an ABBA song on the soundtrack that upset the copyright owner and it was blocked so I had to edit it out and upload it again. Quentin only talks about colours and trim in this section.
