Right, the Mondeo is doing my head in, keeps going through MOTs and is just "white goods", don't get me wrong, it's a good car, just too "new" I suppose, there's nothing to do to it apart from servicing. The Locost is fun, if a little impractical, but there's no major project to do, it's always fettling and accident repair now ;)
I'm getting itchy-welding-fingers, but can't justify another car.
What I need is a daily driver that can also be a bit of a hobby as well.
I've a Zetec and RWD gubbins ready to fit in the Locost, but that's ages
away, so I was thinking of a Mk4/5 Cortina, firstly to stick the Zetec in,
then it can be my daily driver :) Escorts are megamoney (at least for me,
the last one I bought cost me £50) and as a family man I really need 4
I had one years ago, it felt huge at the time, I'd just "upgraded" from a
FIAT Strada :) It was a chalky dark pink colour and had huge chrome wing
mirrors. When I came to sell it, I T-cut it, and after a few hours hard
work, it was so shiny I didn't wanna sell it :(
If anyone hears of one going for cheap in the north, especially if it needs
welding, gimme a shout :)
I have a vision of a brown, lowered Mk4 on wide steels :)
 Real "wing" mirrors, as well as the normal door mirrors it had 2 huge
chrome mickey-mouse ears in the middle of the wings. The old bloke I bought
it from was dead proud of 'em ?!?
