hes thought about donating it to a museum

 

Crikey, I wouldn't want to be one of the big museum acquisition managers, having to enter that bidding war when a MK6 Escort finally comes available to enter their collection. Having to beat out all the domestic museums would be stressful enough, never mind once the international powerhouses like the Smithsonian or the Prado catch wind of the once in a lifetime opportunity.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And if it is broke just ignore it, and maybe it'll be sort of OK...?

I was nearly driven into by a Mark VI Escort when I picked the 960 up from Motherwell - can I have supper?

having had 36 Reliants (mind you they are fetching coin now) i would never berate someones desire to own a certain car,but i think this may end up being a fruitless search.They were horrible new,unloved while being used,put away wet then scrapped.Most that are left now have passed from council estate to council estate until they become barry/scrap fodder.

The games been raised now to a Glaswegian Escort with Dealer plates, slightly scruffy but not too rusty, ideally of a special edition, with 2 keys, completely unmodified with a full service history for under £500.

I'm looking now, I'm going to find this Escort if it kills me. How far will you travel?

I have searched, so far i have only found an Glaswegian Escort. Depends on how much i pay if she comes with dealer plates or not.  :mrgreen:

To be fair, I wouldn't buy that Egham Escort either, as it has the infamous 'runs drives stops as it should' line. Thanks for describing the basic functions of a car m9.

 

The Reading reg one is nice though. If I had an eagerness to own one (I don't) I'd have it outside already. I still maintain you finding a local one and letting the owner know you like it will probably get you one quicker....

We're all stuck in a vicious cycle where pointing out the absurdity of this thread's continued existence pushes it to the top, giving it the oxygen to live just a bit longer.
