Fords to star at Bromley Pageant of Motoring

| 12 Apr 2012

The 2012 Bromley Pageant of Motoring will celebrate two of Ford’s most popular classics – the Anglia and the Cortina.

The million-selling Anglia ceased production 45 years ago, but not before its OHV over-square engine became popular with the tuning brigade and powered many sports and racing cars. Its breezaway rear window – and starring role in the Harry Potter films – ensure it remains a memorable shape today.

The four years and £12 million that Ford later invested in the Cortina spawned a best-seller, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2012.Both cars will star at Bromley on 10 June, which is billed as the biggest one-day classic car show in the world. The event will feature around 3000 vehicles including classic cars, motorcycles, trucks and tractors.There will also be live music, parades, special guests, an autojumble and trade stands.
