Ford Cortina T-Shirt
"Is the Ford Cortina the greatest car ever produced by Ford of Britain? My granddad thought so, anyway. And I'm not arguing. The Ford Motor Company at Dagenham, Essex built zillions of them, and the vast majority to very satisfied customers.
"My granddad bought his first 'tina, a Mk1, on September 3rd 1961. He remembers the date because in 1939, that was the date that Britain and France declared war on Germany. And soon after that, he was in the Army.
"Gates of Woodford, a family-owned Ford Main Dealer (that gave its name to Gates Corner), sold him the 1,200cc Cortina. Not that it needed much selling. Cars like that sell themselves, and this car was new, different, stylish, and affordable. It was one of the classic Dagenham Dream Cars, hence the slogan on my cool T-shirt.
"The colour was Goodwood Green, and the car came with a radio and a heater. The price was £573. My granddad drove those four wheels around for the best part of ten years, then traded it for a Mk2 Cortina, and then traded that for a Mk3. So you might say that he was a Cortina man through to the core.
"I once asked if he'd ever considered a Vauxhall, and he gave me a dark look, then made as if to hit me.
"I've owned two Cortinas, both Mk2s. But after I get another Ford Zodiac, I'll be hunting down a 'tina in memory of my late granddad. And what colour will I be looking for?
"Goodwood Green, of course. It's a family thing..."
