As a member of the admin staff here on OSF can I please ask we all just relax a bit,

 

No-one is trying to make out that we should make the rules etc everyone has different tastes and likes/dislikes etc, I love my Mex but I also like other old fords like the legendary RS500 and a can give credit to the RS1600i & S1 RST.

 

The Old Skool scene was going long before we all got together to create OSF and make it what it is today,

 

And with the help of other web sites who also share the love of old classic fords we can all keep the scene alive and kicking for years to come.

 

Hope to see you all at Retro Show and Ford Fair :thumbsup:

The first and second year i thought CF show was brilliant, but deep down i knew it wouldnt be too long before it was swamped by plastic.

That's because some of that plastic is HALF A DECADE OLDER than some of the newer OSF accepted stuff (Brooklands Capris) and a lot of it is at least TWENTY years old. Hell, every Series 1 XR3i, RS16i and RST is OLDER than my last TWO capris.

CAN AN ADMIN PLEASE DELETE/LOCK THIS THREAD.

 

 

Oxford Dictionary:

 

Classic

 

• adjective 1 judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality. 2 typical.

• noun 1 a work of art of established value. 2 (Classics) the study of ancient Greek and Latin literature, philosophy, and history. 3 (the classics) the works of ancient Greek and Latin writers.

 

Car

 

• noun 1 a powered road vehicle designed to carry a small number of people. 2 a railway carriage

 

There is no mention of a time limit, All it boils down to is that a classic ford would be one that is judged over an undetermined period of time to be of the highest quality (i.e Good).

 

And seeing as everyones perception of good is going to be different seeing as its all based on opinion and taste then there is NO POINT arguing about it. Just wait another 5-10 years until they are all older and no one can argue that a 35 year old car is a classic or not.

 

They are all fords. They are all fast, Granted some are older than others. But is it really worth having a go at some stranger for.

 

Where the show is concerned as it is a "Classic Ford" show some age restriction should be in place to stop the strip being filled with 3 year old fiesta focus and mondeo. Maybe a time set aside for the oldskool to go up against the nuskool would be better.

 

All i know is. There was a boat load of Fords that i like there and thats all that matters.

 

 

We should unite against the French, Germans,Spaniards,Italians and all those asian car manufacturers. Not sit here moaning about how his car is 6 months younger than yours so therefore it should be here.

 

P.S IMO Escort Cossie was a classic the minute it came out of the design stages.

That will become necessary if people start being offensive over the topic, as long as people are discussing different opinions amicably IMHO there is no need to lock or delete it.

This one has lots of plastic too..

Capri30RS.jpg

Wings, front, tail, skirts, etc.

Some of it is genuine X-pack and some of it are ad on's by Suhe Design

 

So as I understand it correctly I'd better leave it home next CFS or atleast not bring it to the OSF stand........

 

SOME PLASTIC IS STILL FANTASTIC :wink::wink:

JP. When we say "plastic" we mean "modern". My RS2000 has a plastic nosecone but it is not "plastic".

 

Your Capri is definitely Old Skool Cool 8)8)8)8):thumbsup:

i liked seeing a range of fords there the focus St in the trading area is not a classic and i agree a 08/09 car should not be there.

 

the thing that make me laugh rather than get annoyed was the Peugeot 106 and mini amongst all the fords! :shock:

 

 

Great show and i cant wait untill next year :beer:

Its always a good show but you cant put a classic tag on any particular car. Old Prefects are much more old skool than Escorts in the same way that a three door 5ierra Cos worth is more of a classic than a Mk2 Escort POP ( it just is ). The new 4ocus RS will be an instant classic. I'd have em all and laugh my the round ones off at anyone who told me they weren't classic. Grow up.

this is the first time we have been to this show as you can see i havent been a member for to long this was my first year of owning an old skool ford we went to the retro show last year witch rekindled my love of old fords i have always owned fords from mk1 escorts to my currant mondeo

and mk5 cortina

yes i feel there was a lot of newer fords there but having said that every individual there took pride in ther particular ford apart from some idiots

ive been reading about on this thread theres always some pr...cks

fuelled by stella act a twat

when i decided to go old skool it was not just about the car it was the people involved going to shows and getting out off the rat race

wether i was changing a gearbox or sitting in the sun or driving down the road and feeling that little better about life so wether your choice is a jelly mould or a cortina were all entitled to our choice it was a great show lots of good racing and beautifuly prepared cars i hope to go to more shows this year we are off to the retro show this year were it all began hopefully will get to meet some of you there :thumbsup:
