    LET\'S SEE YOUR MK1 MEXICOS THEN!!!

    Here's my '73 Monza Blue Mex







    Sits much better after I shod it with 4x new Vredestein 175 70 R13's last week, ditched the low profile 185s it came with when I bought it - seems to handle much better as well.

    Does anybody have any pics of Mexicos rallying in 1970s or even from Mexico Challenge Race Series?

    Wonder how many of these are still around? Mexicos lined up for a photo shoot at Boreham in 1971.....
