Colin's photos

Here is the car Colin mentioned yesterday with the chrome windscreen surround. He calls it the wide track Mark 5 because Rob Wilson fitted HQ front and rear ends. Before we call it a day on this car I'll dig out some photos of it with the wheel humps completed and the car repainted. Have a look at the tail lights. They're old Fairlane ones turned around sideways.
Meanwhile, here's some photos I found of the same car when it used to live at Roger and Carole's in Northcote, home to some pretty good pre and post 6-hour parties.

The Cortina air extractor vents are evident in one of the pictures. They lived with the car for a very long time. I like the front blinkers. This must certainly be the car from the Mark 5 brochure, because, apart from the very rare (for Bolwells) Rudge Whitworth hubs and wire wheels, the bar through the centre of the mouth is noticeable in one photo.

Looks pretty tuf with the wider track. I like it. That's a nice shot of the bonnet line in the bottom pic. If I had one, I'd be tempted to exagerate that nice curve coming up from the nose a little bit.
