CC Outtake: 1984 Ford Cargo 1013 Caught On Dash (Er, Side Window) Cam


Out with the dash-cam again, I seemed to have found yet another classic from the Eighties.


The reason for this weird shot angle is because I was testing the new Opel Astra K as a potential replacement for the current Astra J. I dash-camed the drive so that I could show my wife later- she couldn’t come with me and I wanted her to be part of the process. After all, she’ll be the one driving the car mostly.

Going over the footage I found this Ford which I haven’t seen in a long time. It’s even painted in the original Blue that adorned many Ford Cargo trucks back in their day:

As for the Astra; I might do a post about it. Suffice to say that cars have come a long way- REALLY long way from what I remember as a child, and much further if you consider earlier times.
