Things are good, buddy, how's yourself?

 

I can't see myself in an Escort again, even a Cosworth if I could somehow afford one. I think I've come to terms with the fact that I don't have the time, desire or most importantly the skill to do anything other than waste money on old or project cars.

 

This is me for now:

Yeah, I know how it is :) Still got the ST? It's a nice looking motor, very jealous and miss a turbo. It'll be faster than my Mustang as well, it's just a V6 but cruising about with the windows down is worth the snails pace, haha.

 

Neither an import or UK model, I'm living in the US! Insurance is about the same as home since I'm considered a new driver, but a full tank of Optimax is about £28 lol! Rear tyres are starting to add up though :roll:

 

How's things for you, Lee, and the other golden oldies?

All good here.

Things do change though. Lol, got a little Mini One D ( although I couldn't quite leave it alone lol ) and I'm into bikes now for the rush. Got a Suzuki GSXR750 :)

Where in the states are you..?

What makes you say that Stu?
Reason I was looking was.. That it needs a service and belt change.. The cost of that is a slight bit cheaper than the block mod.. But with the block mod all the belts and service is done any ways..

If you'd have asked me a few years back, neither would I!!!!

Priorities change, and with 65mpg easy and £0 tax..... It still has tints, been lowered and am thinking about new wheels though lol

Not quick in a straight line, but handles better than anyrpthing I've ever had!
