Welcome to Old Skool Ford

Old Skool Ford, what is it, who are we and what are we about?

Old Skool Ford began as an idea in mid 2004. The site was created to provide a forum dedicated only to the older Fords that predated the era of front wheel drive and plastic bumper adorned cars that Ford began to produce in the early 80's. On July 27th 2004, and with just 8 members (most of whom are still with us today) Old Skool Ford was born.

The site, then as now, was set up to cater for car models that were in UK production prior to 1980 (though we do also like to see similarly aged US, Australian and European Fords). This encompassed up to and including Mk2 Escorts, Mk3 Capris, Mk1 Fiestas, Mk2 Granadas and Mk5 Cortinas, plus any earlier models. The purpose was to offer a unique forum that caters solely for these cars and we acknowledge that this isn’t to everyone’s liking, but point out that there are many great forums out there that cater either for the whole marque, or for model specific tastes. But none that cater for a whole era. Old Skool Ford was, and remains, unique in that respect. Over subsequent years there has been much debate on whether this list should be updated, the admin team recently discussed these requests and being a members forum, it was decided put the issue to a forum wide vote. The vote result was in favour of maintaining the status quo and we respectfully ask your assistance and understanding to keep it so.

Many thanks and we hope you enjoy the forum

Best regards

It's that time again where the members of OSF and the OSFDC get together to celebrate all that is great about our club. It is also the day when we find out who came where in the OSFDC 2015 season and hand out the well deserved trophies. This year we are back at The Jolly Farmer near South Godstone (postcode RH9 8JR) and the date is slightly earlier than normal - Saturday 28th November. Everyone is welcome to come along and have a beer or two. We will have nibbles and a disco/karaoke in the private function room. There are plenty of hotels locally (I'm sure you can all google for info) and we are just waiting for confirmation that those with campers/motorhomes/tents will be able to stay over in the adjacent field/car park. EVERYONE IS WELCOME. I must stress - this is NOT a Jolly Farmer Meet - this is an Old Skool Ford Meet although it is not a car meet - it is a people meet :) WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!

Determine your cars build date for tax free status

Sep 10 2007 06:45 PM | Vista in Articles

With the recent budget news that the long fixed tax exemption date is moving forward by one year as of 2014, determining your build date will be important again to some members.

Let's hope they see sense and make it rolling again at 40 years come 2014!
