                            The Princess coulda woulda shoulda been a world beater if the build wasn't so bad. The 2 litre version was about £5300 in 1980. Ford couldn't figure out how that was even possible as their 2 litre Granadas were £700 more.

                              As funny as this is, it makes me feel a little sad, knowing 3 products of British automotive history are now going to be confined to the scrap yard. Let's not forget that most cars of this era were crap, bar a few Japanese models, relative to modern motors. If you put these cars into that context they are something to be admired not mocked.

                                          If companies from 3rd world countries hadn't bought these expired British brands ,then today they would have made really cool cars! I don't know why the entire world hates Britain and gives support to countries like India and China,I bet these two countries can never make good cars !
