What's the story here? Looks like they were all taken at the same location? the Mk 2 'tina looks like it's fallen foul of someone with a baseball bat! :shock:

I guess you must be right. I've heard of Daytona yellow (I've got a model Consul in it from Vanguards & a MkII Escort in it from Trofeu) but thought it was more lemony whereas that looks positively bananaish!

Good stuff! Not sure I like the Rat Rod look- that's a '29 Model A on '32 rails, I think. Those unsilenced headers must sound fantastic, but surely can't be legal?! :shock:

That car was at this year's Croxley Green show. It's not as loud as you would think - istr that the chrome ends provided some sort of silencing effect.

I thought it looked more of a '32 body with a severe chop and the grill is a '32great pics by the way 8)

Not 100% sure I have to admit- grille is '32 as you say, but the Model A windscreen is a different shape to the Model B, as are the rear side windows- that looks like a chopped model A shell to me.

Now this is very cool - this epitomises what led me to desire a MkI Escort as my first car when I was a kid in the days when there were still plenty around & wanting one was not jumping on any bandwagon & they weren't hugely desirable. Needless to say 12 or 13 years later none of that was true any longer. :roll:

That Mk1 is nice, Reg. I regret not having a (decent) one when they were still reasonably priced. Turning down a Mk1 Mexico (real!) with a 2.1 and all the trimmings for £1500 in 1996 or 7 is one of my biggest regrets. I'd need to remortgage the house now to get something similar.The MK1 I did have was a lovely car to drive & to look at. But by christ was it a rotter underneath. Would have cost billions to put right as my skillz are NIL for that level of work. Still, it will live again I hope. Although I'm not keen on the suicide doors it sports nowadays. :wink: :shock:

Marinas are an interesting example of a car being supposedly very rare (700 left in the country etc, unfortunately 699 now) yet are worth precisely f@@k all.Similarly unloved cars in the 90s, such as Cortina 4/5s, Vivas, Avengers, Chevettes, Hunters, all have their following now, yet not Marinas - are they that bad to drive??
