  4. My old orange escort LTF733K

    Most welcome to copy this photo in the Orange is the Black thread it certainly should be shown off with its Orange siblings

    That's because he probably doesn't even realise it copies or mimics a UK year format. We have a many different style of plates to choose from and no plate is permanently assigned to a car its just all open to swap and change. The style used in the photo was one that was introduced because many of the modern European derived cars didn't have space for the conventional taller Australian 3 number 3 letter plates. He probably chose it for its euro look for his Capri that was privately imported as Mk3s were never sold here. You apply for a plate with lettering and numbering you choose and if that one is already taken they give you the next one closest in sequence. Im guessing this guys name is Arthur and he was born on the 31st October or the 30th November but it was on another car already.

    Something odd about that one. An "N" plate is for September 74 to Aug 75 so definitely mk2 territory. That's either had a front end job to look like a mk3 or is carrying a private plate.................oh wait, just zoomed in and can see it's a NSW Australian plate. Why would the owner copy a UK format that's too old for the car? Stunning looking car whatever.

    Like many of the older threads on here, it's been ruined by the then reliance on photo bucket for hosting images.

  26. The older members on here will remember my thread on the restoration of this car, it took long enough (Can't find the link now the site has changed) I managed to track all of the new owners up until now where it appears to have gone quiet. It's still my baby and it's nice to keep an eye on it and make sure it's still out there! Last I saw of it was with Mark Burton (he may still have it) but no contact for a while. Any info appreciated. attached pictures of mine and beyond... Rick
  27. Hello

    Welcome Ian, I was 20 in 91, and I still have the OSF that I bought then. Hope you find what you are looking for at a reasonable price..
