Just Been Reminiscing

Recommended Posts

just been flicking thru some of my Early (1992-1995) Fast Ford mags

 

there's some class machinery in there, but my god how times have changed lol

 

There's a MK5 Cortina in there, it's got stuck on foglights, a tinting grille thing on the rear screen, a tailgate reflector with CORTINA on it, rear reflector stick on things and a tow bar! :baby:

 

it said in the specs, Cost of vehicle: £500, cost of conversion £1000

 

lol, imagine summat like that in there 2day! :D

 

also saw in an ad, them Teddy Bear alloys that were on that cab on ebay lol

 

some of the bodykits on mk3/4 Escorts and mk1/2 orions are soooooooo bland, ill-fitting and just generally crap it beggars belief lol

 

on the other hand, there's a 500 YB Cosworth powered, sweetly subtly modded MK3 Granada, estimated top-speed of 185MPH and 4-sec to 60 :drool:

15"s were big lol, 16"s were huge, u were a god if u had 17"s, u couldn't really buy 'em anywhere then lol

 

yeah that was true, it was a quality mag for the 1st few years. There was a free baseball cap with that issue, i found a pic a few weeks ago with me wearing it whilst stood next to Jack Jone's Butcher's van outta Dad's Army at the Dudley Show '93 lol

 

"Throbbing Purple Monster" was the 1st cover car, and there was an MG Maestro Turbo on the front on the 2nd issue

 

it all went downhill after that lol

notably when the saxo came along  :roll:

 

and when Novas became affordable and the Ford X-Flow powered Vauxhall Chevette became a thing of the past ;(

 

i used to love watching all the locals where i used to live in their MK2 Escorts, Chevettes and MK5 Cortinas, used to be wicked. Looking back tho, it's tacky as fcuk, but at least it has a helluva lot more charm than the chavs and their chavwagons of 2day ;)

thats interesting, as it came out in '92 i believe!  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

 

'93, still got issue 1 ;)

 

Fast Car was about years before, and then there was Street Machines (always full of V8-powered Anglia 105E's :roll: ) and Custom Car and Cars and Car Conversions
