for those who are interested, my cousin put up a picture of my old Talbot on face book, I haven't got any pics of this car left, but I had some posters of it done over 20 years ago, my cousins son now has it on his wall which I never new till now, any way car was running 3.9 rover v8, with narrowed Volvo rear, tubbed with huge centerlines, full cage, forest arches, stripes on car were painted on, awesome machine I loved that car , wouldn't mind it now to cruise in, poor pics as photos are of poster on wall

I have a mate who built a MK 1 Cortina in the early 90s using a rover 3.5,i did some of the welding on it during the build,he used a stock 4 door and considering he built the chassis on his workshop floor it handled remarkably well,it got a mild port job and 4 branch manifolds,with its bright red paint job it looked very much like Steve Green's one which he ended up running against one weekend,he used the original carbs for a couple of years and got 14-15s at the Santa Pod 'run what you brung' meets,he then stuck a blower on it and got 13s and after a lot of tweaking finally a 12,sadly his work commitments took over and as the car was his daily drive it slowly went downhill,when i saw it last he mentioned he had not changed the oil in a couple of years and when i spoke to him in 2009 he had given it to his son,apparently it sat around for a few years untouched and the rust set in and was finally scrapped
