Ford Cortina Mk3
A tribute to one of my favourite cars, the Ford Cortina Mark 3 of the 1970s. Between 1978 and 1981 I owned two of these, one good, one not so good! The cars were made between 1970 and 1976, and underwent a facelift in 1973, gaining the rectangular headlights on top end models and a plastic grille on all. Inside, the dashboard was altered from a sloping design to one that faced the driver, which continued almost unchanged into the plainer looking, straight-edged Cortina Mk4 which replaced this car. The Cortina Mk3's profile was significantly raised in recent times when one was featured in the 2006 BBC TV series, 'Life On Mars'.
