The TR range of cars was built between and in Coventry, starting with the TR2 and ending with the TR7 and TR8 in While the TR6 of the s was a classic British sports car, the dramatic “wedge” shaped TR7, launched in , was something quite different. Britain, the s and cars are usually characterized by the Jaguar E-type at one end of the scale, and the Mini at the other.

With a lot of thanks to all my classic car friends we've put together a great collection of 70s cars including the iconic Capri for you to have a look through, and to make it a little more interesting, we've written it all as if we were in the 70s and even inserted the going price for the cars at that time.

The car had a space-saving transverse engine and front-wheel drive layout, so that almost 80% of the interior could be used for passengers and luggage.   The tortoise-emblazoned Gordon-Keeble GT was a stylish British car, by way of Italy's Bertone, powered by an all-American Chevy engine. Just 99 were built in the mids. It launched its first own-brand car in the s, and moved into GT cars in the s. The iconic Interceptor arrived in , and made a brief comeback in the late s, and then again in Cars in In , car buyers were demanding smaller vehicles. Compact cars were marketed heavily by every automobile manufacturer, in stark contrast to the s. New models included the Ford Falcon, the Chevrolet Corvair and the Plymouth Valiant. Soon after, Lincoln-Mercury released the Comet and Dodge introduced the Dart.
