  1. Fast back model, i remember back in the 1970,s someone i knew bought a brand new skoda, while looking around it i noticed you could see the road through the gap between the sill and bottom of the door.. Excellent quality control.
  2. Thats the bit of the show that always annoyed me, even when he sells the cars back to their original owners..
  3. Had a 1300 gt 35 odd years ago, had non flared wings, normal strut tops and black rear panel.. (oh and absolutely no rust)
  4. Assume you mean ther 6r4 but with twin turbos i believe
  5. Not watched top gear regularly for a few years now, even with the 3 good presenters, i find racing an aeroplane, boat, modern train, mountain climber etc pretty boring and nothing to do with cars really, which is what i watch it for.
  6. Thanks for that i did try looking myself at old stuff.
  7. Thats the problem, i cannot remember anything about the sale, at the time i just wanted rid, but now youve said that you could be right. A few details as it was at the time, 5 linked rear escort axle with badly welded in link box,s, spare wheel holder was cut in half, 2 ltr fiat twin cam engine and 5 speed box, escort front suspension, new revolution wheels / tyres but i do seem to remember seeing those advertised for sale..
  8. Bought this in 1987, think it came with a 1300, which i swapped for a 1600, sold it in the early 90,s by which time it had a full f/glass front, does it survive.
  9. Does anyone know this car, think i advertised / sold it on this site about 9 years ago, would potentially like to buy it back.
  10. selection of road tests of various mk1 escorts rs 1600, rs 2000, 1300e allard, Crayford, broadspeed etc.. Item in Cambridgeshire, will post to normal uk postcodes for £14. struggling with a photo.
  11. If my memory is correct (99% sure) I removed these from a mk1 Cortina 1500 gt back in the long hot summer of 1976. they were to go in my similar engined Anglia 105e, but have sat in my shed ever since, They go in either side of the inlet manifold and and the t piece is for the heater connection. Think they are brass, far superior to the alloy ones that corrode. £25 collected from Cambridgeshire or I will post for £5 to normal uk postcodes. Having trouble doing a photo, will have to get some help ( computer retard)
  12. Don't know why anyone wants to cycle, its horrible, went out on my push bike today (as I seem to be spreading out around the middle) thought it might do me some good, but aching legs and feeling sick seem to be the only results after 90 minutes.
  13. I prefer the drive with the light weight crossflow, can feel the heavy pinto upfront, but pinto power wins.
