    Phil Suarez

    Just realised it's 17 years since the great man was sadly taken from us. Greatest City commentator ever, tannoy man, coach driver even. Legend.

    There are some people that make a big impact on your life, and Phil was one.
    We were great friends as teenagers. I played in a band and he was a regular supporter. A gang of us had a great holiday in St Ives back in 1962, the five of us travelling in Phil's cobalt blue Ford Capri.
    Ive taken a picture from an old album on my phone, but got no idea how to share it on here.

    If you are able to save the picture you've taken on to the hard drive of your computer, you should then be able to load it into a message on here by using the "insert image" button (third from the right in the bar which appears above what you are writing when you want to put a message on here).

    Nice piece of nostalgia.
    Check out the Oxford bags.
    Has Lisvaneblue got the picture of the car after they all got off?

    Sorry but I haven't got a picture of the car. It was a ford capri and as you can see Phil kept it looking good. The five of us squeezed in plus luggage for the trip to St Ives, Cornwall. No Severn Bridge then, and the motorway network was patchy. The trip took forever.

    Def not a Zephyr. They were a lot more spacious.

    My dad had a Zodiac, similar shape and size to a Zephyr. Gear lever on the steering column and a front bench seat

    Looks like a Ford Classic to me. Ugly cars that never sold well.

    Classic was 4 door, this was a 2 door.

    By the way....odd website this when someone tries to pay tribute to a man that was CCFC through and through and the banter is all about cars.

    Didn't mean to offend, great photo . Just always thought of the Capri as a 70s car.
    He looks a lot like Steven Gerrard in that photo

    With respect to the late Phil Suarez who I listened to regularly. Didn't he live in Beulah Road and was always concerned to get back home after a night out to feed his cat?

    The Classic was available in 2 and 4 door form. Extract here from Wikipedia:

    The Ford Consul Classic is a mid-sized car that was launched in May 1961 and built by Ford UK from 1961 to 1963. It was available in two or four door saloon form, in Standard or De Luxe versions, and with floor or column gearshift. The name Ford Consul 315 was used for export markets.
