  1. Will be awesome if we get this 3 month heat wave the media were reporting... Love the wheels
  2. I was thinking about EVO the other day and wondering if anyone was still around! I havent logged on for an absolute age as I have been living abroad and haven't even driven for 2 years! Shame to see it going so quiet and I do miss my Escorts but I dont think I would buy one now, I would end up spending too much money on it no doubt.
  3. a mk2 is the perfect little go kart! Yeah....I've only ever driven one on a field but even then I could feel that. Will it get a cage for the track?
  4. My mate is on his second one of these and loves them. The styling isn't quite my thing but I love going for a drive in them. He had some kind of modified turbo one to begin with and that just blew my mind acceleration-wise. Even the standard 1.6 is pretty nippy as they are so light! Any plans?
  5. Nice little project. Always used to like messing round with my mate's Mk1s and 2s but we never really put enough effort it to make it onto the road or track... Some strange wear spots on the seats....??
  6. Love the old S1 RS wheels....had a few sets myself
  7. Octavia is a good call, I know a couple of people with them and they love them.....but then again it doesn't have the class of the BMW or Volvo. MG would be a great choice for something a bit different....I'm sure there are quite a few around but doesn't feel so common as a Volvo or BMW.
  8. Nice wheels and good to see this car is being saved, good work
  9. I used to be pretty regular, even after I stopped buying Escorts but I have been overseas most of the time, without a car and pretty busy. I haven't even driven any kind of vehicle for a year now
  10. Wow... what is wrong with people. I dont want to start this discussion again after PeeWee's note but... its a free world. Its up to people to live their own life how they want...however many cars, job etc whatever they want. This guy hasnt trashed and scrapped 55 cars so I dont understand where this went off. Dont reply to it Anyway I like the Cossie rep P100, very nice. Got any Escort pics? oh now i see Escort pics lol
  11. silver one will be good with matching wheels....really not loving the bodykit on the red one
  12. when i was a kid my dad had a sapphire in that colour...i love that car and it was that and his orion that originally made me love Fords. this is going to be an interesting project...want to see some videos of it in action when its done
  13. some serious work going on there.....but well worth it, seriously love S1s! Great work
  14. my Iveco camper had a breather pipe that was just like that and it had an MOT
  15. I got some cash and a bucket full of Christmas cheer (not)... bring on 2013
  16. Hope everyone had a Merry Merry Christmas and Happy New Year coming up!
  17. Looking fantastic....and the film set stuff is a credit to the work put into it and also a unique experience
  18. I'm over in nz now...over here we have a choice of these (Lazer) or European Escorts Good progress, not seen any modified ones here..will be a million times better after the paint And I've never seen a station wagon Laser....
  19. Korea was where I was aiming for...tried once and it fell through at the last minute, hence why I'm in nz now... Can speak some Korean and know plenty of people over there already
  20. So this weekend we were treated to Red Bull 'Drift Shifters'. Street scene was set up....lots of barriers, obstacles and even a truck to drift under. There are sensors on the obstacles so the drifters get points for proximity etc. Would have preferred to see traditional drifting with battles etc but this was pretty good and great location. One car wedged itself under the truck which was pretty funny. Not sure if anyone here is into drifting but there were a few of the big names there....Daigo Saito, Mad Mike and Matt Powers who won the event. Anyway pictures are way more interesting than words. http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1727.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1731.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1737.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1759.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1814.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/SAM_1803.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1824.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1793.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1788.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1787.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1784.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1781.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1776.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1764.jpg Getting stuck under a slightly lower part of the truck.....d'oh http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1756.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/Red%20Bull%20Drift%20Shifters/SAM_1750.jpg Got loads of pics but photobuckets causing me grief at the moment so thats all for now
  21. Cheers....they didnt seem to be very popular with people on here and elsewhere but I liked them- had another set on a hatch before that
  22. ah right....not bumped into any of those yet but plenty of beggars and crack heads....but theyre everywhere these days Yeah its pretty amazing to be heading into summer right now :-)
  23. Yeah I wouldnt be too sure about going to Disney during the winter.... Its worth the visit though if you want to brave the cold as for Paris....there is the standard tourist things to visit...eifel tower, sacre cour, notre dame, le louvre (where Mona lisa is)...the rest of Paris just involves chilling out at cafes or wine bars but again....you miss out sitting outside because its winter- thats a bit part of the charm.
  24. My old one.... http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g82/matthewkwillis/estatesummer09013.jpg
