Oh, and can it have that plastic clutch cable quadrant that explodes and throws its teeth over the footwell at the most inappropriate moment. Then we'll know it's a Cortina....
    Yeah, and in the handbook under Routine Maintenance it'd say, "Every 12,000 miles (or annually, whichever is the sooner) replace inner and outer sills."

    Or, more likely, "Return it to your Ford main dealer to have the inner and outer sills replaced."
    You CAN polish a turd...
    ... but I wouldn't want to T-Cut it

    Does it have a starting handle?I went to school with a bloke who ended up working on the design team at Fords, I suspect he is still there as he was a clueless **** at school.I doubt anything has changed-I hadnt seen him since leaving school in 1980,but was at a concert at Wembly Arena in the early 90s.By total fluke ,i was having a **** and standing next to me relieving himself was said ****.
    I said hello,and having not seen him for 12 yrs,politely asked him what he was up to."I am having a ****" he replied -and that was that.Never spoke again.

    Like others have done...hung a familiar name on a predictable computer-generated characterless blob, in an attempt to give it some instant personality and 'heritage'.

    I'm not buying it.

    I loved my old Cortys...and don't forget, almost ALL cars at that time required new sills periodically, not just confined to Ford's finest.

    The only Cortina for me is the mk1 Lotus and by modern day standards it would be nothing but a sad joke,apart from its value! But no matter how good the new Cortina is,it will never be great like the oldies
