That’s a Lotus Cortina. It’s a neat little Car built by Lotus and Ford in the 1960s. If you’ve ever driven in a car from the early 1960s, you’d know that a lot of the sheet metal on display in this race car wouldn’t look out of place in the original. Cars back in the day had lots of metal showing.
Flip-Flops to the junkyard. To. The. Junkyard.
I’ve been to the junkyard, plenty. As a matter of fact, I’ve been to the junkyard to get parts for 1960s Mustangs, and their idiot adopted cousin, the Fairlane. A proper junkyard is full of snakes, yo. As a matter of fact, we used to go snake hunting in the junkyard. You’re going car hunting in a snakeyard. Wearing toddler shorts ain’t helping your look, either, dude. And you keep returning to the junkyard without any tools. You’re on the Motor Trend channel, so you’re obviously dilettantes, so we’ll move on.
