Saw this nice 1967/68 (I think) Ford 12M while camping in North Devon in June. The young German couple whose car it was were touring the South West of England in it - cool way to travel I reckon.

The 12M was an early member of the Ford Taunus family, so I was told by owner Gunar Muller & was not sold in the UK. Gunar has written about his tour of South West England in his blog here ...

Did not have my OM10 with me unfortunately, so took these shots on a digital camera.
