CYCOV8 the little Cortina that was
The story of CYCOV8, the trials and tribulations of a little Cortina that
lived life on the limiter. Burnouts, powerskids, drag racing and cruises
were it's specialty for so long.
However as they say, live on the limiter, die on the limiter!
Accidents, Rollovers & Recoveries from the Eighties Video 2
PLEASE READ This is a further collection of Recovery Jobs that I did in the
late eighties. It gives you a chance to see some of the great characters
that were in the industry back in the days before it went all Health and
Safety. Plus of course a number of Policemen so comfortable with what they
were doing, that they allow their sense of humour to show through.
The Stripper was for one of our HGV drivers who was always playing tricks
on people and his wife knew that if she set him up at home, he would see
right through it, So we did it at work using a real Police Officer the
driver knew, to introduce the lady as his new navigator.
I know some of the technics look appalling now, but we knew what we were
doing and I never 'lost a man on my watch'! If anyone recognises
themselves, please take a moment to say hello.You will find several more
collections like this on my 'U-Tub' Channel.
