Mk5 Cortina convertible.
Sorry but this was the early 90s, things change of course. We would buy a
Mk5 for £50 run it a year then scrap it. Thats the way it was.Would never
dream of this now.Lots of parts were used to get the next Mk5 on the road.
Scrapyards were just full of them at this time.I have to point out that we
saved a few mk4s, and any Mk3 , in fact my current MK3 (PDM 869L) is still
on the road, saved from the very same scrapyard.Bought in 1993.

I know that some people will comment about the garage space I have but I
built the garage to do the car and it was hard work.
I hope people can get some input from this for their cars. This is just the
