  6. well lads here is one for the books , i got a call from a man in roscommon last week saying he knew the whereabouts of another sierra van !!! took a chance yesterday and went down for a look and ended up buying , its in better shape than the white one and i actually had it running very quick despite it being parked up for over ten years ! the fun stated when we tried to extract it from its resting place , took about four hours enlisting the help of a chainsaw , sledge , pickaxe and numerous garden implements , oh and a very tasty bit if off road driving by declan rafter ( blackmagic) in his
  7. hi all myself and mark mex decided ( at the last minute ) to head down to a " cars and coffee " gathering organised by damien murphy to kick off his " drive for down syndrome ireland run" , when we arrived in galway there was a nice turn out of vehicles and the weather was good wich was a big help , anyway we got wind of another meet happening in limerick and we decided to blow her down for the crack , anyway 330 miles and € 100 of juice later i made the round trip in the granada , have to say i thoroughly enjoyed it and met a great bunch of lads down there with some fantastic ca
  8. hi again , just a quick story and a few pics about a recent engine swap we did on the fathers old sierra , 90 SO 1212 has had a geat life bought new by a local man and kept in pristine condition until the father purchased her from hendersons of sligo ( main ford dealers ) in 1995 with only 45000 miles on the clock , he used it daily for the next ten or twelve years and kept her in great shape , plenty of driving but the ould fella is super safe and real old skool ( ten to two on the steering etc !!! ) he did a couple of trips to england in her also but long story short a few years back he pull
  9. bit of an update lads , spent all day yesterday shoveling pooh.gif and taking off a lot of bits off the van to see what the actual shell itself was like , turns out its not too bad at all despite twenty years of dog and sheep pee rotting away into the carpet and the sound proofing , it came out in chunks instead of one piece !!!! bit of a nightmare getting out the seats and the rear door was siezed shut but plenty of WD40 and brute force shifted her , we found and managed to remove five rats nests from the back of the dash , id say there is more in there just have to get the dash out first !!!
  10. HI ALL im new to this site but i thought id ask a few questions about my latest purchase , oh i live in ireland , after months of speculation and head scratching and with a huge thank you to declan rafter ( black magic ) i am now the proud owner of what is believed to be the only sierra van in exsistance , now i know the sceptics among you will say " ah sure thats just a feckin estate with panels instead of glass " !!!!! but you'r wrong , from what we can gather from the first owners they wanted a mid size van from ford and something " a bit different " ,the local ford dealers here tried to
