  2. Same, 30 years now and counting. Would have to be in dire straights I think to consider letting go. I like the idea above of going out in a blaze of glory. Once my daughters are all fully grown up, I wonder if my death wish streak I had a young adult will return to finish me off before the dribbling begins...I fooking hope so.....๐Ÿ˜ Having kids really makes you grow up and stop acting like a total prat.

  3. Waited months for these from Retrobolts but Webcon supplied filters finally arrived. Glad to finally have some way of stopping all the dust and crap being sucked into the engine. Had to modify the outer diameter of the trumpets to fit them inside, but all good.

  4. Im actually more attached to my Rally Pack than I am to my Twincam (I know weird huh?). Its nice and all but the Mk2 was my every day road car I have had for over 35 years. Its been through my touring the country phase, my university days and times with friends before everyone started families and gave up their OSF so that its now the last car of my original teen/20s gang. Too many memories that money cant buy even if its total pain the ar*se at times and ridiculous parts prices of late. Mine you 30 grand AUS is only 16k Pounds Sterling for an original 2lt Rally Pack that still has its original engine when its insured value is well over twenty I think even if I wasn't attached to it I would have passed.

  8. So weve booked tickets for the Saturday night special at the pod on the 23rd oct, got the light bar fitted and finished the wiring, also fitted the passenger seat, my youngest son has never had a drive of it, he is only going round the pits in it, but i still dont fancy crouching in the passenger side without anything to hold onto, so the seat is in for now, might even chuck a belt in it so maybe could take a passenger up the strip, got a couple of bits to do still, but also got a week off leading up to it so should be ok More soon ๐Ÿ˜œ

  9. Agree with all of the above. Should the worst happen what would you have to pay to buy something similar? IF you can find one, and if it has the similar spec and condition. I think as others have said 100% ยฃ30k+ all day long.

  11. Hi what a stunning restoration this is . I have been using these fantastic photographs as reference for my 1300e which was stripped down may years before I bought it . I have looked many times but am unable to see were the choke cable passes through the bulkhead into the engine bay anyone got a picture showing how it was originally. Thanks Dave.

  12. I would be inclined to go for 30/35k mark. Cost of any parts to reinstate after theft or accident could a fair whack which you have to put in the equation or an equivalent replacement.

  13. I would have thought it was higher than that. I have mine insured for the equivalent of 21K and its a 4 door and Australian cars arent valued as high as Uk 2 door ones. I would have thought yours would be closer to the 30k mark?

  14. Concours or not - that is a lot cleaner and more original than mine which i'd put a ยฃ25k price tag on! Its not just a car - its the sum of its parts as you might be able to get a replacement for 15 - 20k but without the extras and probably a lot of the standard bits that are the pricey bits to a) find and b) buy! Concours quality cars are heading to circa ยฃ50k mark, so I'd say ยฃ30k wouldn't be under priced!

  16. Its one of Fords "Grabber" colours (or should I say colors), that was offered of performance models, much like the RS colours and they were quite similar as well Like: Grabber Green - Modena Grabber Blue - Monza Grabber Orange - Vista Grabber Yellow - Daytona Grabber Lime - Monaco Grabber Light Blue - Olympic As for the hinges, they are more like a modern car hinge, not just a pin through two bits of metal like the Escorts etc. They are more robust, but they can still drop!

  18. I have stated exactly that on many occasions! I bought it 2 weeks into my first full time job with my very first bank loan. I cant believe they loaned me the money with such a short employment record but they rang my boss and then gave it to me so it must have been secure. Lately though with all the repressive things going down in the world I have been more contemplating my own version of that movie "The Last Chase" where they claim that all the oil has run out and then force everyone into mass transit and electric golf buggies and the star Lee Majors of the Six Million Dollar Man fame digs up his racing Porsche that he buried in his garage so they couldn't take it from him and he makes a dash in it to the free part of America. Go going out in a blaze of glory to freedom in it rather than fading away alone in a nursing home is certainly on my options list!

  19. I get far too sentimental over my cars an struggled to part with each one, but having as much attachment to it as that, I think I'd be buried with it ๐Ÿคฃ

  21. Just went car shopping at a place that has dozens of dealers all crammed on to the one site. Had 3 offers for the Mk2 in ten minutes. Was offered 30 grand cash (AUD) through the window while I was still navigating their driveway! They were like vultures!

  29. I filled my tank in work yesterday. It takes a total of 795 litres in diesel. Only put 200 litres in the main one though for the mornings work, as I couldn't be arsed to put any more in. It does like a drop or two...

  34. Hello All again, I am now confident I have everything sorted to fit the RX8 5 speed gearbox to my AJ30 engine. I have had it all together, it turns over on the starter nice and easy and the clutch operates/springs go over centre mid travel of the slave cylinder. The parts I have used are: Freddy's adaptor plate Mondeo flywheel Jaguar Starter Ring Jaguar starter motor Mondeo clutch cover Generic 23 spline Ford clutch plate (sold as a TVR spare) Mazda 6 slave cylinder Crankshaft to flywheel spacer Crankshaft pilot bearing and flywheel locator adaptor Adapted RX8 clutch arm pivot All that's left to do is to get the flywheel and spacer statically balanced. I have now moved on to making the air intake plenum chamber. I am going for a classic looking plenum chamber sitting on top between the cam covers. The next update will be in a while as I am now back working abroad to get more pennies! I have attached some pics to show what I have been up to. I am very close to having a kit for full rebuild.

  35. I think the confusion was caused by the 'use' description against the plate part number - they are opposite between suppliers!

  36. As you know, I used to go to all of the big summer shows when organising the stands etc for OSF - CF Show, Retro Car Show, Ford Fair etc... Sometimes we had over 200 cars on our stand!! But they all started to get a bit 'samey' if that is a word..... but from around 2006-2008 they slowly started becoming the Performance Blue Focus ST show, rows and rows of cars you were seeing at your local supermarket. Couple that with the 3-4 hour drive each way and they lost their appeal, selfishly if it were closer I'd probably go again, but I get why they host it in the middle of the UK to make it viable for all corners of the UK. Plus it seemed like the whole thing has lost its initial reasoning, for getting Classic Ford owners together, it seemed like it was more about how much money they could make. I don't have the perfect answer, but keep it classic!! perhaps don't invite the Brand New Focus ST brigade who's cars are on finance, and limit it to pre 90's cars only, that way it would keep it a smaller affair and more in line with the title of the show CLASSIC Ford Show. Not bothered about having a live event there such as drag racing or track time, or a Funfair like atmosphere with rides and ยฃ15 burgers! just a relaxed chilled venue that you could chill with loads of like minded classic Ford nuts and chat to and admire the cars. For those that want Focus & Fiestas ST's and the like, there is Ford Fair and others for more modern cars Why not have two smaller proper classic events? one in the north and one in the south? Hey that's just my opinion. I'll wait for the abuse ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
