Yeah mate Dartford. Nice trip to Wales?

Smooth as. No traffic at all and a nice drive. But could only get one door in my buddy's bora, (stupid Dub) so will be heading down there in a couple of weeks to get the other, and whatever else tickles my fancy. What a shame ;) haha

i still have a nosey from time to time but escorts and fords in general are long gone from my ownership.

 

as for facebook.. i have a wife and kids (so clearly have had sex) but i think its great way to keep in contact with my friends and family especially as some of them are abroad and allows them to keep up to date with my kids etc. facebook is what you make it..

 i have a wife.. 

 

thats not proper "sex", thats marriage

 

PROPER "Sex" is when you poke the bint in every nasty way imaginable purely for your own gratification before promising to call her the next day with absolutely no real intention of doing so............. obviously not "marriage"

I've suggested making the site more appealing to all mk's of escorts previously and not just 5/6.  Apparently it already is an enthusiasts site for all mk's although IMO its not very obvious.  Given that the user & post count is so much lower than it used to be a reduction of the number of categories could help make the site appear more active by having more active topics in each sections.  This is the first time I've logged in this year and there was 3 or 4 sections with posts since I was last here.

 

Yes facebook has killed forums off to a certain extent, but there has also probably never been a less desirable time to own an escort.  They're generally too old/not desirable for an everyday car for most.  New drivers (i.e 17/18 year olds) are not going to buy one as their first car or 2nd car as the like of myself did 10-15 years ago and they are still to modern and too many rough examples around to be appreciated as a classic or maintained as a 2nd "Sunday/Show" car.  I know there are exceptions to that, but generally speaking thats the case.  Give it another 10 years, the crud thats left will be soup tins by then, the better examples will get restored and the minters that have been hiding for years will resurface as they will actually be worth a quid or 2.  Its the same thats happened with other Fords, mk1/2 escorts being prime examples but also Capri's which I'm a massive fan off have massively increased in value and demand in the last 10 years as less are available and more middle aged men want to relive their youth and have the money to do so.  When that happens sites like this will pick up again, if they still exist...

Something like fordevo would broaden the users and there could be different topic sections for different vehicles etc?

It was called escort evo for a reason. Problem with general ford forums is that the information and the knowledge kind of gets watered down a bit

 

Look at talkford for example....hate that forum. Full of old men asking the same questions about their diesel mondeo. And people always giving the same incorrect advice.

 

You also find a load of what i call 'one posters'. People whose cars have developed a fault so they sign up to a forum. Ask a questions and thats the last anyone ever hears from them
