By the seventies the Jaguars could never get away from the Sweeney's Ford Granadas


Aye right! You can make anything look good on film. The Jags were being driven with the handbrake on to give the Grannies a chance. Surprised

Nah, it was all those pesky cardboard boxes that they kept colliding with. Scourge of the 70's gent were yer actual large cardboard box, always popping up to thwart yer honest businessman about 'is business in 'is hooky Jaaaaag. Very Happy

I'm surprised we haven't heard from Mike C. He really doesn't like Ford Granadas!

I have only been a passenger in one and found it pleasant enough - if a little dull.

I must admit I do like a Granada, ours had 2.8i engines, sports suspension and taxi interiors. The orange stripes on white body looked smart as well...... Laughing





Although the Senators were even better.
