Anonymous

I was talking to Dazza earlier on about Cosworth Engines and we were both wondering what YB stands for. Can anyone help? I looked on the internet trying to find out but I can't frown

Also, another question, which Cossie do you prefer? Sierra or Escort? smile

YB, in what context?

Escort all the way, but mind you, some of the old sierras are darn sexy.

Like I said before Vicks i dont think it stands for anything, all i know is that the YB engine is based on the old pinto engine.

Also its gotta be Escort Cosworth all the way!

Intresting Fact: The Escort Cos is atucally based on the Sierra Cossie rather than a standard Escort - i.e Esc Cos parts wont fit my car!

This is a very sexy sierra.





Much nicer than the newer shape in my opinion.



I dunno, think i might have to change my mind back to the very old school sierra

I dont like tha Flip Sierra - Ford's dont take kindly to Jap stylin or things like that in my mind, save that paint colour for a Paxo.

Out of the 2 shapes of Sierra - I like both, seen sum mint old skool sierra's but would prolly say the Mk2 Sierra was the nicer model, only cos I have more experiance with em.
