NEW FEATURE: Post Like system!!!

At long last, we have successfully implemented a comprehensive post rating/like system. With casual readers and visitors vastly outnumbering frequent posters, it is not always apparent to users that others are reading, enjoying and grateful for their posts. If you are too shy to post and want to express your thanks, now you can!

Liking a post is easy - click this thumbs up in the top right hand corner of the post: Image

Can I encourage everyone to use this new feature enthusiastically and liberally and be sure to go back to your favourite old topics and like old posts. This will help build up useful user 'like' profiles and give credit to the users who has provided so much value to this community. This in turn helps guests and newcomers sort useful answers and posters from others.

This goes to regular forum lurkers especially - please show your appreciation with a 'like'!

Featuring:
  • Liked post counters in every user profile (given & received)
  • Liked post leaderboard accessible from the index and Quick Links Menu
  • Receive notifications when your post is liked, configurable from the User Control Panel (in forum notification and/or email notifications available or off)
  • You can remove a like if you made a mistake by clicking the undo button where the thumbs up used to sit (but the user will be notified)
  • Plus more


Read the announcement and post any queries, comments or suggestions HERE

Once read, this announcement can be dismissed by clicking on the 'X' in the top right hand corner.

Looking at what we can see you'd have to think 1972, with RHD square headlight models (similar to Aus spec with vented bonnet) and LHD twin headlight models with humped bonnet (which match 1972 USA spec, they had twin round lights from the beginning because of their design rules). That would make all Capella's pictured Series 1, be they square or twin round headlight, vented or humped bonnet, gee that well and truly screws it all up hey :moon:

A high res version would be golden as yep that Capella left of pic has a different style badge again on the rear 1/4.
So Dazz you have me confused between the RX2 series 1,2 & 3, was the S1 a 4 door and the S2 a coupe with humps on the bonnet and the S3 was a left hand drive but also the series 4 had a piston engine in the rear but never got released????

Can you please clarify.

Regards Chris :? :? :? :? :? :?

I first came across this Postcard for sale in the Oak restaurant at Freemans waterhole around 20 years ago.
I happen to come across this pic of it again recently.

Not sure why i didn't buy the post cards at the time.

That is a Mazda 1000 or 800 in the carpark next to the Dodge?

It's Saigon, 1968.
