Say'Ford'and several names and images one thinks of: mass production; the'Model T '; the name'Henry'and the iconic signature style Logo.

Ford cars are ubiquitous, and their images sustained, and a couple of have popped up within my life. The initial that I could remember is a beigey/goldey/ rusty coloured Mark IV Cortina.

The Mark IV was assembled in Dagenham, Essex, and was the United Kingdom's most popular car of the seventies, in production from 1976 - 79, and the successor to three previous generations / incarnations first released in 1962. That one was squarer and somehow chunkier than its forebears, and came as either as saloon or estate.

The man had expressed a pursuit in the vehicle to a Sales Director, whose company car it absolutely was, and it became section of an incentive package that included foreign travel, a samurai sword and a girl of the night. But enough of this, jobs were lost, contracts renegotiated, and the world moved on - and now we find eleven million VW cars under scrutiny for a few extremely questionable cheating business practices.
