      I'm ashamed (as a petrolhead) to say that I don't know what that car is! What is it @shiney?

          Sorry, @fat controller I can't remember :scratch:. It was an American car but I don't know which. I'm sure one of our other members will know. We did the photo shoot 32 years ago.

              Thanks, @Sandy Ground :dbgrtmb:

              It was fire engine red. :) (That's my terminology and not the official one.)

                That would make it Signet Red, the side panel would in that case have been Snowcrest White.

                I'll get my anorak... :snork:

                Edit: Looking through this topic yesterday, I think I recognised someone I knew years ago. Now theres a scary thought...
