Now, my guess is that the bulk of people on these forums have a pre-FPV vehicle, so the dilemma is that when someone wants to put a sticker on their rear windows, it'd usually be one of the three.

But, what does one do? Place a Tickford because they were around in that cars era or FPV/FPR because we are in the new Ford era?

I myself would like to put a sticker on my rear window but am undecided whether to put a Tickford or FPR one. Tickford to represent the era of my ED or FPR to represent the Ford racing community?

What is your idea on this issue?

Thats a tough one, I for one was a bit disapointed in the name change. I believe the name Tickford symbolised fast Fords. I understand the need for a name change, but does it devalue the Tickford name and the cars bearing that name. I for one would only run a Tickford sticker on my car, being a Tickford built vehicle.

See, I was thinking the same thing considering FPV is remotely near my car! FPV for me totally out of the question but FPR has an exception because it's a racing team, not part of the manufacturing aspect as such.

I'd stick with Tickford.

FPV on say, an EB XR8, just seems wrong. In a way it's like putting Tickford badging on a GTHO Phase 3.


[EDIT] Wait a sec, are you talking about non-tickford worked cars? Hmmmm undecided, personally I'd put a Tickford sticker on it. [/EDIT]

Sorry to put you in this boat, but whats the difference between you putting a Tickford Sticker on your ED Fairmont, versus a Honda Civic putting an Type R/Mugen sticker on it.

I'm not saying its a bad thing - its great to show what side you are on :)

I know what you are saying Ian about showing what side you are on
but a Type R?Mugen sticker on a Honda Civic is Rice, right?

I'm only trying to show my support for a product. Not that I was going to put badges and what not on there but I felt that a sticker was good enough whether or not my car is Tickford or not.

I just kept arguing with myself whether to move to this era or stick with my car's era.

Yeah, go Tickford wings but pity they had to go due to the take over.

I keep a Ford cap, and an FPR cap on the back parcel shelf.


That way it's relatively easy to change. Also, surprisingly they can be functional, who'd a thunk it!!
