I like the look of it, back end of Escort MK1, front bumper from a Porsche, bonnet Capri styley, and what a striking yellow colour! I want one!

Mark III Cortina, there was a "bronze" one next to it, quite typical of the era but I was drawn to the Red GT badge against the bright Yellow for the shutter click.

A nice contrast Neil :) I rather liked the Ford bronze as well as the yellow... Good to see it's a colour that's making a limited reappearance on some new cars... That's no bad thing if it displaces the dull dull dishwater greys...

I like a cabriolet, but I also like a Coupe and this one is in a particularly pleasing colour

Fiat 500's are usually colourful and cheerful. This is the Abarth incarnation, noticed the little detail of the Italian Flag colours at the bonnet line at the front so clicked the shutter.

Bit lighter than Baby Blue and an odd little car all round. Novo Mesto's finest... The Renault Twingo III

In short its rear mid engine (whatever and wherever that is!), rear wheel drive, with rear doors which don't appear to have a handle at first sight, and its genetics coming from Daimler/Renault in their "Project Edison", and its made in Slovenia.

This one made it all the way to Kelso, and attracted my attention initially because of what appeared to be its handle-less rear doors!

This stimulated a shutter click today. Don't think I have seen a C1 in this shade before.
