They're a bit thinly spread these days, though they do have an enthusiastic following. The one you've captured is a later Mk2. There were front grille and tail-light revisions similar to the MkV Cortina sometime around '81.

Image
Earlier Mk2 Granada 2.3L. A friend had the estate version of this and we used to go to football matches in it. We used to load it up with all the kit and footballs and I used to ride shotgun. The guy used to hang the tail out 'round every corner with a deft touch for an alternative take on hedge-trimming. He traded it later for a shiny late-model 2.8 Ghia which was not subjected to such abuse.

That Mk II was registered in Bristol, I believe.

I remember our biology teacher owning one in the mid-80's. It was rather scruffy. In fact, it was a heap, and the butt of many a student's humour. One day the windscreen shattered as he was driving in. We teased him about his new air conditioning.

Continuing with the Ford theme, a friend of mine owned this XR4i back in the 90s.

Image

It was written off in an accident. Fortunately neither he nor his girlfriend were seriously hurt.

Another friend owned one and used to give me a lift into work. I remember it with fondness. A far nicer machine than the Capri in my opinion.
