Either that or the clutch is mad slipping :D Fiesta has had the number plate pointlessly relocated, though my search for a supplier of that design continues ;)

Keep em coming - love to see abandoned old junk like this

Spotlamps on the V-reg probably of more value than anything else there!

Front wheel on the Ital estate looks like it came out the factory yesterday!

Pull the bonnet release on that Fiesta, grip the underside of the bumper with both hands and then give it a firm tug - dripping with rust as it is, £20 says it'll take the entire front panel with it, headlights and all. I did that to a rotten old B-reg I had some years ago... made engine removal a little easier though

Fiesta 1100 mk1 with rare mk1 tailgate and rs alloys!!
http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c370/J...

What do MkI Fiesta's normally have for a tailgate then? Looks normal to me! Unless you're just talking about the fact they've relocated the number plate?

What's rarest in my book is the strange crossover you can get with MkI Fiestas with MkII tailgates but incorporating normal MkI rear lights. Looks most odd, yet I've seen many like that over the years. Not sure what the story is!

Those incredibly slimy Marina's & Ital take me back to the similarly decrepit van ones somebody posted a few months ago. Almost nightmarishly horrible condition! Who leaves them out to grass like that for no reason!?

Simply, that Ford almost immediately stopped making replacement mk1 tailgates when the mk2 came out - mk2 tailgates were never factory-fitted to mk1 Fiestas. The hinges bolt to the body identically and all the fittings are interchangeable I believe - glass, wiper motor etc. The mk1 tailgates are also prone to rotting along the lower edge (the mk2 item admittedly is not much better in this respect). For the record, rear lights will also swap from one to the other but I think the wiring would need modifying first.

hmmmm I`m liking the Buick....I think it`s got something to do with that red interior (not to mention 7.5 ltr V8!) but I`m guessing the speedo must read in kph as I think 200mph is rather optomistic :shock:

For some perverse reason I *really* want to get my hands on a MkI XR2. Would have to be an absolutely mint condition diamond white example, though, complete with all the original 80s spec. stick on black vinyl bits.

My guess is, it IS an optimistic MPH speedo- can you really see the Yanks fitting a car with a KPH speedo? :shock:

Given a long enough, straight enough, road, 7 litres will push the biggest of barges to a startling turn of speed!
