Simon Jones
The Cortina Ambassador

This World Of Cortina web site is the brain child of "The Cortina Ambassador" Simon Jones from Manchester, UK, who not only collects all manner of Cortina memorabilia and retro items but also owns 11 Ford Cortina motor cars.

Simon has completed a UK charity drive from Lands End to John O'Groats in a Mark3 Cortina and travelled extensively through Europe and Italy in search of material for this web site.

His current search strategy also includes the use of all Internet resources to satisfy his drive for more information and collectible memorabilia.

Simon Jones was born 5th March 1971, Hitchin, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom.

His interests are collecting memorabilia and travel. His ambition in life is now coming to fruition by the set-up of this web site and database to catalogue and preserve the history of Cortina in detail.
