I have to say, I've never heard of a Cortina. Cool looking cars! What's under the hood?

Congrats on the Bullitt. Talk the old man into a blower ;) !!!

I have always liked the Cortina. And your dad seems to have a collection to show just about any variant that I have ever known. I was looking to buy one when I lived in Germany for a while in the Army. I couldn't find one that was satisfactory. I beleive they are called Taunus in Germany. Or were called Taunus, as I believe they aren't made any longer are they? So I never owned a Cortina, but my brother had a Anglia. I think it was a 1959 and painted an olive green. Nice enough little car, and drove out quite well for 1100 cc. It was quite a step up for us, as we had a 58 Beetle and had been driving everyone else's left overs before that.

Nice collection. Wish I had the time to work more on my older cars. I have a 60 MGA 1600 that I would like to restore. I have all the parts, but not the time and extra money.

Will your 08 Bullitt be right hand drive, that would be cool. By the way, how much is gas going for in the UK now!
