I assume that the interior shot, between the Red Sierra and RS200, was the RS200. What's with the double gear levers?
The pink Street KA was done for the ThunderBirds launch

and the second lever is for the diffs

Interesting the Scort Monte Carle with the weird seats.. Warning Headgasket problems..

Supervan as well...

You are right mate, that's not just Ford heaven, but petrolhead heaven.

One of the best posts on here....EVER
Yep that is one of 7 GT70's

The plain white RS200 is a pre-production model hence the strange front bumper, the rear clam also open the wrong way!

The seats in the yellow Escort cossie (which was that color of the production line and only one in existance) were actually the seats they were going to put in the productions Monte's but for some un-known reason they scrapped that idea


Glad you like the pics people I may be able to get back in there at some point when there is less big boss men around and they will pull the cars out for some proper pics

Awesome, got looking looking at a few of the cars at different times at Ford events but looking at them in one place most have been brilliant. Love the wheels on the Supervan.

I bet you were like a fat kid in a sweetshop

What a cracking day out that must have been although, i suspect you couls always do with more time in a place like that.

I know a long time agao Ford were looking for a mint example of a MK1 fiesta for their collection as they forgot to keep one and I suspect that is where it will or did end up.

The Yellow Escort cosworth has been doing the rounds in magazines recently with a green Focus RS so all of these must be the driven collection (as apposed to the museum collection they must have)
