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.
