Someone fact check this better than I did: I once read that you can identify a "Jaguar" Escort by its unpainted under bonnet.

That's quite interesting as his wasn't painted under the bonnet unlike his last one, it also drive quite nice compared to other mk6 escorts i've driven. It even has an digital mileoneter.

1196cc + 'matic box would be overwhelmingly depressing though.

Not as bad as you might think. Certainly wouldn't win any races but they pull away reasonably well and are ace fun to drive.
Took mine on motorways, by-passes and all kinds and was never a problem.

That Car Mechanics Granny is genuinely rather lovely. Though I never got to drive it, several of my then colleagues seemed to fall in love with it, and must be rather upset to be cruelly parted from it.It's for a good cause though - a gift from a reader and now benefiting Leukemia research. Good luck chaps!

I'm looking out for a Xantia, they appeal to me quite a bit plus I reckon the adjustable suspension will be handy when there's lots of snow. It'd have to be a TD though, I don't think I could put up with a 1.9D.

BACK TO THE 850 COUPE..THE CLASS IN H.S.A WAS TO BE ROADGOING MODSALOONS UP TO 1400cc..WELL 903cc WOULD NOT MAKE MUCH OF A SPLASH ,SO WITH CONSULTATION WITH www.ScuderiaTopolino.com IT WAS DECIDED THE UNIT WOULD BE MODIFIED AND ENLARGED TO 982cc WITH A MODIFIED CRANKSHAFT FROM AN AUTOBIANCHI A112 ENGINE . RESULTING WITH OTHER MODIFIED COMPONENTS TO GIVE AN ESTIMATED 130 BHP...WITH THE AID OF A TURBOCHARGER AT 15ib ft BOOST!!! SPEEDSCENE REGULATIONS EQUATE TO FORCED INDUCTION BEING 1.4 RATIO TO ACTUAL ENGINE SIZE HENCE 982cc WOULD BE EQUAL TO 1374cc!

ALTHOUGH THE ENGINE IS STILL 903cc AND ABSOLUTE STANDARD IT CAN GIVE THE IDEA OF THE POTENTIAL OF MY EX PROJECT TO BE!

FRONT PANEL WAS ROTTEN SO I INNOVATED WITH AN AERODYNAMIC DEVICE INCORPERATING THE SILLS IN ALUMINIUM . I HAVE PATCH WELDED THE SILLS AND IN LINE WITH WHAT I HAVE JUST SAID AND NOT WISHING TO HAVE COPIOUS AMOUNT OF FILLER OVER THE SILLS I PLACED AN ALLOY COVER PLATE FOR MODIFICATION AND ENHANCEMENT.

You can tell this guy is a well-meaning but utterly fucking clueless old giffer. I dont know who this racing engine lot are, but you can imagine them being a fairly serious outfit looking after old alfa and fiat racing cars for well-off business men. Our man rings them up, pumping them for hours with stacks of questions, they wearily tell him what can be done money no object, he gets full of enthusiasm and decides thats what hes gonna do. then he puts the phone down, one of his grandkids comes to see him, falls off his bike and knackers it. He then spends £200 on a new bike for the lad and the engine idea is forgotten about immediately. It was never gonna happen anyway.

The main issue is the leaking heater matrix (an easy fix)

An easy fix... Doesn't it involve dismantling the dashboard like most cars? I wouldn't fancy tackling the job on something as complex as an XM.
Still, what a wonderful car, I would love it.
