Hold on though,it might have been bought in Wales, on ford solutions by a thrifty giffer to avoid Arnold clark, because he worked there ten years previously and somebody shouted at somebody once he now doesn't work there but knows how to google the fuck out of the Scottish motor trade and quote ' knows how to get a good deal?

It's one of the top selling cars of the 90s. They sold millions of the bloody awful things, they're a few hundred quid and they're dead easy to find.

So by limiting the search to cars sold new on a Thursday by Norman Blenkinsop of North Bilge Ford and insisting on dealer mats, flaps, plates & window sticker is making buying the most common car of the 90s about 100x harder than it should be.

But it MUST have the late model run-out boot mat p/no 9345872349857GT897 as fitted to Polish Market 'Escort Pzmrzmz' special editions. And the sticker to prove it.
