That little Elf is just gorgeous. Those alloys are so cute! Gawd, they make me want to buy an Andrex puppy.

That's rather nice. I had one of those about 8 years ago. Lovely cars, I'd definitley have a another in top notch condition. Mine had a dodgy autobox and other sundry issues but I bought it as a kneejerk to missing out on a minter by 5 minutes :(

Unfortunately they're getting quite scarce now.

Thanks! That's a pretty fine spot in its own right, while Honda did sell a few rebadged as Jazz they didn't do the cabriolet here.

I saw a lovely triple-toned lash-up of an E21 BMW today - gold with white & red panels in Gt Yarmouth, went to snap it only to discover I'd left the phone cam in the car. Arse.

Commercial versions quite often hung around longer than passenger cars, either in production or unsold at the back of a compound somewhere.Escort vans were available on 51-plates, the very last of the Escort cars were on 2000 'X' plates with most being gone by 1999.
