Stumbled on this old gold metallic door on a walk with the kids. Shocked the young ones when I told them the make and model. :D

Maybe as a kid I did spend too much time revelling in style of 70's cars. Anyone else want to have a go or is it obvious?

You could do worse than 'grab ' the handle - they were also used on the Jensen Healey. How anoraky is that!

Beryl :lol: :lol: Spot on Dave :D

I remember a guy on that 80's TV show 'You Bet?' naming cars from the sound of doors shutting and another on rear light clusters. Probably door handles too :wink: Not sure many could do that with today's cars?

However that's a relief I can reassure the children that dad studying and naming bits scrap metal on forest walks is normal. :lol:

And I remember him cheating when he got to a car he wasn't sure of he leant heavily against it to guess the shape and give him an edge on his guesswork .
