Trouble was that things didn't get any better in the 80's - my first motor was .......now, promise not to laugh.....a 1986 3 door 1.1 litre escort. It was 2 years old when I bought it and by 1990 the bottom half of the car had rusted so badly that I had paint it with hammerite!
The ongoing constant rust repairs were never ending (whilst most people washed their car on a sunday, i was out with the filler and emery paper
In the end I gave up on repairs and painted the whole bottom half in a afternoon.
Rust wasn't it's terminal illness though.......I blew the head gasket whilst overtaking a cortina at 90mph on the A1.....oh the things we do when we're young and daft
Needless to say cortina man came by me and waved......with two fingers
