Ford Cortina Mark 2

A mate of mine had a very cool Mark 2 Cortina when we were at high school. It ended up in a sad way when it was stolen and burnt out. Not a nice end for any car. Well actually, maybe a few ...
I think this photo represents the era well and what Ford thought the Mark 2 was all about, racing and putting you where the action was. The Lotus version did extremely well and in 1967 with Jackie Ickx and Graeme Hill at the wheel it could beat the Porsche 911. Check out this awesome footage of them racing here.
