This was a lovely treat for Sunday morning pleasure.

2 questions, did any Bulldogs ever get sold and did the TR7 idea ever go anywhere other than the sketch

They only sold the prototype. The wedge style Towns showed in the sketches are a little generic so you could point to the early 80s Midget concept having some similarities.

Who bought it Chuky? Looks like it was a victim of the oil crisis.

Actually I've been enjoying a little series of webisodes recently of Giugiaro being interviewed about his life's works.

I enjoyed this picture of the Bulldog testing at MIRA, before it was smartened up for show duties.
