I watched that a while back
I had 4 Carlton saloons ,great cars   8)
I stuck with 4 pots with mods  :-X and avoided the "boat anchor" engines
I remember someone stuck an Omega V6 in an estate carlton
I have fond memories of the 'totalcarlton.com' (now defunct) days  :)

Good looking cars the Carlton's, I always fancied a Senator I  liked the "aggressive" look of the front end.

Same story for my 24v Sennie. Lovely car in every respect, but it got eaten alive around the rear end until it had to be scrapped.  :(

You boyz with your rose tinted glasses ;D

That said, I always wanted a 24v Senator when they came out, but had to settle for an Astra GTE instead.
