It used to be mine which i swapped for his MK2 which i then swapped for the 100e. He restored the MK1 and here it is!

It follows in the tradition of me buying cars that are half missing. So we bought a ruined mk2 1600GT and raped it for parts and made it 'barable' for my dad.













So that makes it, in age order, MK1 Cortina 1600GT, MK2 Fiesta 957cc, 205 Mi16, S13 200SX. My Mum says no more. frown

Ford Fair is always goodies. Bit of everything there from 50's Ford 100e's to bang up to date RS's, i love that show.

Its been in the garage to be painted about 6 months id say, maybe a touch longer. Had new fibreglass wings and front valance and new steel sills aswell as a load of welding inside as preventative reapirs. Before it was sent away it had the rear axle built by oneself (proof that im not 100% lazy) with a fresh 3.89 diff, and we managed to fit a 1600GT MK2 Gearbox for the better ratios. It sat around for about 2 years after the machenical work was done, so id say 8 months of work with 2 years of sitting around doing nothing.
