The Ford Cortina….Mk5 estate to be precise

I’ve just watched Volver on Film4, forgot what a great film it was. But what I also forgot and was reminded by Volver is how great the Ford Cortina Estate was/is. This is mainly because my Dad used to drive one and as a kid I thought it was the bee’s knee’s. I always get a bit attached to cars and this was definitely one of them. Shame it met its demise on an icy Snowdonian corner with the help of a careless van driver. Anyway.

    The car in Volver is a Granada estate – you can see the lettering on the liftgate in the scene after they leave the wake.
