      I for one have a real fondness for the racing Anglias with the backward rear window. The made up a lot of the fields in the early 70s there, even after the Cortinas, Capris and Escort Mexicos arrived.
      
      I have to admire Bernie's choice in cars. He chose a lot of the lesser known and interesting models, and eschewed a lot of the glitzy and over hyped cars as you see at at other private collections and auctions. Not only in the US, but Europe and Japan.
      
      Today's exchange is 3.082 Pounds per Dollar.

          I imagine you're talking about the '30s Midget, otherwise we're talking different cars. I never made that association, but see where you're coming from. I'm actually more impressed with the creativity and out of the box design process of the guy. http://us.1.p.geocities.com/clenet132/register2.html

          A bit of trivia, he sold the cars with the model name "Asha" ... the name he had given his daughter!

          Cheers, Bob

            I assume you meant the MKII, and am not surprised. Many kit cars and
            even lots of show cars,/prototypes in the day used windshield and door
            assemblies from other cars. It was a sticking point that limited
            production of such cars as the Cheetah, and you may remember the
            shooting brake" conversion the Group 44 body guy did for me on an AMX
            using a Pinto hatchback rear window and frame. I was proud of how that
            turned out, while was one of the ugliest features of the surprisingly
            quick Consulier design. Also resulted in the quirky look of a lot of
            race cars like the early Marcos and even the first Chevrons.
