  1. Well done guys, there’s some serious talent on these forum pages right now. Id personally leave it Brooklands Green, it’s such a cool 70’s colour in my eyes. It is Brooklands, right?
  2. That crash bar is not standard. That needs to come off to enable the bumper to be fitted. A very good job by the PO though!
  3. Looking forward to seeing that bumper back where it rightfully belongs!
  4. Sorry for the constant thread intrusion but I saw these photos on the web that I thought would be appropriate for here. They are the production line at Genk I believe. Pictures taken April 1993. Full credit to picture owner etc etc.
  5. Re: SVE, SJE, TCE. I’ve heard there is a large depot at Alconbury near Peterborough where Fords are registered and stored. If you look at some of the press vehicles from Ford from the mid 00’s for example, a lot of them carry AJ, AK etc. Plates which are Peterborough area indexes. I’d assume they are from there? I once had a Mk3 Astra which carried a JF Leicester plate. I found out (back in the days when you could send off the V888 previous owners form) that it was registered at RAF Bruntingthorpe which did a similar thing, registering and storing them with Vauxhalls and later, Rovers. In fact, there is a well-known clip from You Bet! on YouTube where Russ Swift absolutely twats a 420 GSi Saloon round the track at Bruntingthorpe through a maze of other Rovers. Dad very nearly traded in his Mondeo for a Cayman Blue 2.0 GLX, M525 XCL.
  6. K-GHK and K-HAR, along with K-SVE K-TCE AND K-SJE. SVE’s were mainly loaned to House of Commons MP’s for trialling and evaluation. My dad’s K477 SVE was the demonstrator at Hunts Motor Company in Huntingdon. K-TCE came out at the same time, although these were mainly dealer demo’s. K-SJE were a little bit later and saw the introduction of the estate which was launched in August 1993. K615 GEV was the lead Mondeo which was featured in various news reports of the day, including News At Ten. I’ve researched it and found it was a 2.0i Ghia. If you look closely, you can see it’s minus it’s headlamp washers. This must have been an ‘11th hour’ thing. I can’t see any Ghia badges on the wings either. K529 TCE build date is 2.3.93, registered 11.3.93. Paint is ‘Isis Blue 93’, interior trim colour is ‘Atlantis 92’ and fabric is ‘Stage’.
  7. Yes a very early one, build date of 25.1.93. Whilst we’re on the subject of early Mondeos, a bit of sleuthing has unearthed the very very early 4 door builds, courtesy of Ford Etis.

  8. Just spotted this Capri on eBay, a few numbers away from yours. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rare-1974-Ford-Capri-GT-39k/293629381482?ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F710-53481-19255-0%2F1%3Fff3%3D4%26toolid%3D11800%26pub%3D5574637365%26campid%3D5337910453%26mpre%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fitm%2FRare-1974-Ford-Capri-GT-39k%2F293629381482%26srcrot%3D710-53481-19255-0%26rvr_id%3D2494077146085%26rvr_ts%3D0269af691730a6e5b5e5f287fffdc675&ul_noapp=true
  9. Back of the net! One less on the fleet to worry about...Just scraped it...
  10. Anton at AS Car Dismantlers at Red Lodge has gone Sierra crazy! THERE’S A EURO BASE SIERRA. SHIT!
  11. I managed to see this fine steed roll into my village this morning - looks just as good as it does in the photos!
  12. Agreed. My sister met Jimmy Carr in Norwich many years ago and was a total fuckwit to her. Anyway, how come the Sana has been off the road so long? It was a mere 5 year lifespan on that!
