i like a mk3 escort, the series 1 rs turbos are silly money for rough ones... like the rs1600i but they seem to be even more money! wish id got one 10 yrs ago
missis restored a two door mk2 escort, just put a 2.1 pinto in it and she races at pod. gets low 14's in it, did most of it herself too! karen gunner, google her for a look

Got a fd rx7 although its been a project in waiting near enough got all the parts for the single turbo conversion bar couple of radiator hoses, downpipe and other little odds and sods hopefully get it back together this year but like the last few years always something else to fix first or no spare time where the weather is good enough to get at it

used to have a couple of historic R/Rover classics .... one was chassis no. 00964 on a J plate and t'other was four thousand and summat on a K plate.

Sold em both when I cleared out my yard, along with my single plenum Rover SD1 Vitesse.

Too many toys and not enough time to play with 'em (and too many cameras for the Vitesse) ..... just deteriorating standing!!

The picture makes it look squat. It's just a ford angler, same as ford pop.
