  1. I saw this car last week at a car show, maybe not to everyone's taste, but it was stunning and done to a very high standard. It's all metal and although hard to see in the photos the doors and rear quarters have been heavily reworked too. When I first walked over to it from the front it took me a while to realise it was actually a Capri. I liked it.
  2. Ive got fond memories of playing Kerplunk with my Grandma as a kid... 2005! Blimey has it been that long!
  3. Can anyone help me out with a standard Mk2 Escort Engine Cross member? Cosmetic condition isn't too important as long as it not rotten and is serviceable, I dont mind getting the wire brush and hammerite out! Cheers John
  4. Hi all, Just thought I reintroduce myself to the forum, I'm actually an old member that hasn't posted for a good few years, so I thought I'd try and get involved again! Unfortunately life got in the way of project cars. Kids, house moves, house renovations, lack of a garages etc meant that my old Escort was taken off the road in 2006 and I didn't get it back up and running until this July. Its a '79 Riviera Blue Mk2 that was my first car at 17 (1997). Its a little tatty but solid in the right places and mechanically sound. Some of you who used to meet up in Yorkshire will remember it with a 2.0 Pinto EFI, but after getting a garage built last year I've finally completed the engine conversion I've had in mind for years, its now running an injected 20XE. It's also had a full mechanical once over and is driving better than ever. Does anyone on the forum still meet up in the Yorkshire area? John
  5. ahhh, theres nothing like the classic sound of a 16v 1.8 mk1, with twin solex carbs, fuel injection, and a duratec exhaust manifold to bring back memories of the 70's....
  6. Check out this great web site: http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html Type the two sizes in for a direct comparison.

    Great pics Tim. We went to Temple Newsham in the morning ten on to Langdale. Great day out as always. Good to see that Wilsons Mk2 was running a BDA. I thought it sounded different somehow, especially on the first run through Temple Newsham. I half expected it to be running a duratec or something more modern.

  10. Wow, what a great project! The fabricated strut tower look fantastic!
  11. Click on the link in my sig to my XE conversion. Haven't had chance to do much on it over the last year, but Ill be using a front mounted manta dizzy and the Manta Getrag box. (Why bother with a Type 9 on a XE when the manta box bolts straight on and is stronger?)
