Hello from HUGE - The Newest Newbie


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I figured you only get to be the ‘Newest Newbie’ once! Anyways up I own an Escort MK1 1973 1300GT original spec in baby sick yellow and its been mine for 16yrs and I proper love it, no loath it, no honestly it’s fantastic hold on, hold on let me calm down, I do PROPER love it.

Ive been restoring it & having it restored over the years bit by bit but she’s always been on the road driveable. I’m no mechanic, no body work expert but I desperately try to repair / restore it myself, she ain’t not perfect but she’s mine & she causes me stress & heartache yet somehow the hard work time & effort seems worth it!

Really glad to have a source of info, Ie OSF, I do know a bit about the MK1 but need help as I go along & havnt had anyone with knowledge to ask!

My first ever forum....too much!? 🤔😂
