Newbie

Hey,

New guy on this Forum, So I thought I'd post a few pics of my last few cars while I wait for the photos of the new one to arrive.

Firstly a nice old 1600cc 1969 Cortina - purchased 'cosine it looked like a little version of an XY, and I'd just lost my XY to tealeaves, so.... It went well, slow, but used very little fuel.

The other one I have photos of is the little 2L 1978 Escort, pre-modifications. This one had a little done to it, before a gearbox failure led to the discovering of a transmission tunnel made out of coke cans. It was reasonable, could do a standing burnout after the extractors, cam and rejetted 32/36 carb went on. And it sounded great for a 4 cyl.

After that one, I went back to uni, and shared the driving of the EB (standard 6 cyl) with mum. But seeing as I now no longer live in the same town as mum, I had to find a new mode of transport.

The new ride is a 1994 Falcon ED, 5.0 V8. Stock standard with every old-man option you can think of, including front sunvisor. Oh, and it only has 26,000 odd kays on the clock. I'll post some pics as soon as I can....

But anyway, heres the British Fords.

The back of the Corty, No I'm not worried about the plate. I've scrapped one Corty, and the other is some paint over some rust. Long story involving panel shops. But anyway. Its not worth stealing now!

Now for the Escort. A great little car, very steerable on the back axle. This car ended up on Trevors (Newcastle Escort Guru) farm, doing many donuts until he decided that he'd take the head off to stop people from stealing it.

Spotters of Newcastle will recognize the location......

The side shot of the Esky. If I were a better photo-taker-guy I would've noticed the shadows, but hey, Im not.

The loverly green vinyl interior of the Esky. This was factory. Someone actually chose "Pea Soup" green for the outside and "Dont come in here with a hangover" green for the interior. It was much more flouro in person......
