    That's pretty impressive for a rusty wog chariot.

    Semi-intentionally.

    These things where built to budget in backyards in the day and the guy has tried to capture that. Full article here:

    i am of the belief that it is rather poor form to post lazily googled answers on this lighthearted and informative car nut thread.

    if you dont know the answer, and feel you have to look it up, then at least have the decency of spirit to allow a few others to post their guesses and opinions before steaming in.

    anyone can google these photos, but whats the point.

    Well, fastest accelerating Australian built production Car. No offence to the mighty E49, but there were quicker production cars built before and after its time. The 'record' stood for many years because of a number of factors - oil crisis, political, perceived safety and liability issues. I'd still have one though.

    Produced during the finest car production period in the UK, Cyrille's Labourite worker mates spent the 70s gradually bringing the once mediocre UK car industry to its knees.

    Innovative though, square ish steering wheels

    I'd love one unfortunately at circa. $240,000+ presuming you can even find one that boat has sailed I think.

    I was recently looking at a particularly well sorted and done tribute car (or replica or whatever you want to call it) but it came down to choosing between that and a genuine Pacer so that's likely as close as I'll ever come. Even the E37 and 38 are getting up there in price these days,

    The Hydragas suspension was good when working and they were good caravan pullers, if that's praise?

    those big old british leyland cars were both practical and lovely to look at, but sadly they were made by disaffected workers organised by bolshy trade unionists in out of date factories run by incompetent managers.

    triumph, rover, austin, wolseley, riley, morris and mg. all gone now.

    i particularly liked these. lovely, in an ugly sort of way, but couldnt compete with the glamour of the german cars that were just starting to gain the attention of the british car buying public
