Was given a bunch of photos recently from when I was younger.
Found a bunch of photos of our Corty as the family hack.

Might just take pics of the photos and load them up ... easier than scanning them.

Post them up, would be great to see. Still got a pick of me as a baby in the old mans Twin cam Escort before he traded it on a Cortina for family life.
How do we move this thread to the show and shine area with all the other 'show us ya' threads?

OK ... I promised.

Parked at home next to the trusty KB Laser GL (that was a top little car as well). This was taken just before 1988 (as the laser got Bicentennial number plates in 88)



Road trippin around NSW early to mid-80s. That's me sitting in the back seat. Yes there is a dent in the boot.





X-pack had the overriders/driving lights/4-spoke steering wheel/air-con/cloth interior (not the crappy vinyl)/vinyl roof. 4-speed manual as well. Reckon a decent 5-speed behind it would have made these even better.

I have older pics but has family standing in front of it ... these are the better ones I could find.

Much better with a Grill Change, some lowered springs all round and new shocks and some wider steelies on the back
