Hi! I figured from my collection of crap I really ought to have a thread here. I hope they're shite enough...
I suppose I should start with the one that actually gets used.
99 Ford Mondeo Mk2 Zetec - Special gaffer tape free edition.
Just a regular old 1.8 Mondeo, I fitted the 2.0 camshafts and MAF, throttlebody and ECU to give it a little more pep. And a full leather interior from a Ghia X I bought for Â£80 from copart. And it was rescued from a scrapyard.
She shines up really nicely though I do love it. Though unfortunately it does get left out a little thanks to the other cars. I've got a zetec S bodykit for it but I'm feeling evil for removing original crack free bumpers. Unless anyone here needs some then I'll feel better
Next up is my Mk3 Cortina, a lowly 1300L but much to all of your disgust I'm sure I'll be making it into a 2000 GXL. Now, I have good reason for this though. A few years back these were pretty easy to pick up for a non insane price, but now that's just not possible. So I got my Mk3 while I had the chance, and seeing the prices of them it's probably the only chance I'd have gotten. It's been my dream car for forever so I'm just going to build it to my spec.
So far I've been doing lots of welding to her, inner wing repairs, replaced the lower portion of the A pillar inside and out, most of the passenger footwell and jacking point, all of the edge of the floor, the lower B pillar, and I'm almost ready to spot weld in the inner and outer sills. Then it's wheeltub/arch repairs (maybe the full quarter) then valances boot floors etc etc etc etc. Basically everything it's a rotbox!
I'll dig out some better pictures / take some more of this one soon so you can see the whole thing. The weather has been pretty unpredictable as of late so it's been a little tricky.
Next up is my Mk1 Cavalier 1600GL with added 400cc.
I rescued this one from a garden in wales, looked awful but I couldn't let it just sit there. My dad had an ascona and it's the first car I remember. Asconas are too pricey now so I thought I'd be happy enough with the Mk1 cav. After all after the ascona he had a mk2 then a mk3 cavalier.
Here she is as I found it
