    A little bit of sad news to report. Harry Calton, the former Ford of Britain press officer, passed away today. You may not know the name but he was behind the launches of the Capri and many of the now-classic Ford, RS and XR cars during the 70s & 80s. Ford’s PR was the best in the business thanks to Walter Hayes and Harry. I had the privilege of him writing up his recollections just two months ago for my book which I’ll share here.

    RIP Harry; Ford, and especially Capri enthusiasts, owe you one.[​IMG]
