Off to the newsagents tomorrow :)

I hope they have pointed out how dull and outdated the contemporary Escort, Astra and Golf were at the time (and the updated versions of all three launched in 1991 were no better) :laughing2

These are just the page thumbnails at a resolution of 270 by 320 pixels - text is unreadable so you need to go and buy a copy!

I will chase him. They have sent me all the photos of the shoot for No.1 but not the POL photos. It was a different photographer at POL but I will contact him and get them distributed.
