I reckon it's worth it Trigger. Not the most polular car in the world but that's in really good nick and what are the chances of finding another that nice?

I looked a couple of MGF's for the wife last year before i bought the Puma, what a crook of shite, One looked like it had been reshelled and the other looked like it had spent it's holidays deep sea diving, The test drive wasn't much better with a speedo that couldn't decide if i was doing 30 for 60, an exhaust that was gone and steering with a mind of it's own, and it had 'only' done 40k on a S reg.I walked.

1981 Ford Granada 2.1D

 

Tuktuktuktuktuktuktuktukbrrooonn!

 

As a bonus, the Granada is an ex-taxi with vinyl seats and no headrests. Quality!

W00f! A Ford anorak has already spotted it has the massive ashtrays on the back door panels, part of the factory Taxi pack. Rare as!
+1 KWOLITY

 

I've got the '82 Ford brochure which lists the spec of the Granada Taxi pack - I must root it out!

 

Mark.

Don't blame you. The one I drove was 03 reg, crap ride, panel gaps you could fit your finger through, scuttle shake that rattled your fillings and the worst fitting hood I've ever seen, which is saying something as I've had a Herald droptop. My mate's MX5 is a hundred times better.

Is it wrong to be more interested in the Maestro in the background?

Not at all! My ex GF had an MGF and it was crap. I drove it and it was no better than the Spitfire I used to own, despite the 20 odd years difference between them
DANGER! WARNING! DANGER!

 

Violet will SEE HIS ARSE when he reads that :lol:

 

By the way the first dealers must be coming through now as a well known Reliant Scimitar specialist in Chester is selling the new Chinese ones now apparantly. Can't say I've seen hundreds of punters waving cash about in a queue outside just yet though.

Taxi pack you say?I recall a bloke up the road having a Mk2 Granada he used as a taxi yonks back and when he damaged a door he moaned that the replacement from another saloon at a scrappy wasn't big enough.I remember questioning him over this as I always thought all Granada saloons would be the same. Anyone know if the taxis had slightly bigger doors?

The Taxi was a standard shelled, Ãœber-base-model, normally diesel Mk2. The Taxi pack added the goodies listed above. Huge ashtrays, vinyl seats, radio suppressors and the like.If his doors were the wrong size, he either had major issues, or one of those weird Coleman Milne jobs.

Fordthorne in Cardiff have a couple of new MGF's on the forecourt, I say new, the same ones have been there a few months already, nicely presented by being covered in seagull shit. They have now given up and taken down (or it fell down) the, no expense spared, MG banner that was tied on the front of the shed, sorry I mean showroom

I followed a 58 plate MGF the other day. Did a double take at first.

Cheers, one of those things that always made me wonder after he said the doors were wrong.
