I've had loads over the years from mk3 onwards

Rot set in a few of my mk3s

A crash killed my mk4

A utter robbing b&£)ard took my xr3i

One of my mk5s had utter electric failure

And the other was a rot box

And my si had an accident on a four post lift

And the others have been traded in

This time all the stuff came up at the right price so thought one last go.

 

Cut a long story short I'm just daft......

Small update the escort has arrived some good points some bad.

Good points:

It a good base to start

The interior seems pretty clean

It starts

 

Bad points:

The exhaust sounds like it's had it (but it's going anyway)

The tailgate won't open with the key

Big ass crack in the front bumper

It's smells rank

 

Haven't got it on a ramp yet to look underneath I'm expecting the chassis legs to have had it and some sill work to be done.

But not bad for a swap for a peugeot 106 I got for 60 quid at an auction BARGIN.

If you look closely you can see some sill chassis leg..
