Old Skool Veteran

Old Skool Veteran (7/15)



  1. Fitted new carpet set from Tech Autos. The old carpet was a cheap set, had a cut out for the old 4 speed box and was a bit musty. It now looks and feels much better.
  2. Updated the lights and painted the exposed yellow behind the grill to have a cleaner finish... plus this is what Ford did at the factory.
  3. Paul. Hi Paul! Yes, I remember you were gutted at the time, I must admit I was a bit annoyed as well as it went for around £14,200, your £16,000 would have been useful at the time! Anyway, I'm glad you found another daytona mk1! Maybe we'll be able to get them together at some point! Max
  4. I took her to another place, I like to use different places. Obviously, Colin and Joe did a brilliant job as the engine is still running sweet.
  5. Hi Mark I bought her in Feb 2014 then sold her after nearly three years, went to TVR, missed Escorts so got a mk2 then the opportunity came to re-purchase the yellow wheeler dealer car that I first bought off the program in Feb 2013. I had both HON 80N and Wheeler Dealer cars together for a few days! In the previous owner's time, (Martyn from near Cardiff) In my ownership My current mk1 I sold HON 80N to a lad in Essex, the Essex car has gone home!
  6. £17,609 bid, £2,641 - 15% fees to Silverstone Auctions. Auctioneers make good money on old Fords.
  7. The guy I sold it to didn't use it enough but when he did he managed to blow a piston... I don't know why he bought it, it's been sitting in a Barn for 2 years, unmoved. Anyway, I'm glad be wasn't really into it as it meant it came back home where it belongs. I can't wait to hear her roar again.
  8. I paid £11,800 for it in 2013, spent a fortune on the engine, better seats, manifold, exhaust, wheels, quarter bumpers etc.. then sold for £14,200 in 2014 and then I bought it back 3 years later - now 2017 - for £14,200 but it needs some engine work. I'm happy because I sold my RS for £23,500 so I'm quids in!
  9. Scott, I thought I was over Escorts so I sold the RS last year. Unfortunately, you can take the boy out of the Escort but can't take the Escort out of the boy! I tried a TVR for a while but ended up back in an Escort.. mk2. The mk2 is lovely but my main love is the mk1. I've got the genuine RS thing out of my system now, so the modified xflow yellow peril is back... And it was £9k cheaper than the RS!
