A few from the other weekend @ Oulton Park Gold Cup... just to keep the thread up to date







Was hoping to do a few more cars & coffee meets, a map tweak, maybe even fit a few parts that are sat in the garage... but that's another show season almost gone... time to sorn end of the month
Even more so now I'm in next week for a cancellation inguinal hernia operation... hopefully be back on the mend soon enough and back to 100% fitness ready for next year
Retroford Magazine feature due soon, will update when I know it's due out

Just because its not a RS, doesn't mean I can't buy nos genuine parts does it...

Purchase number 1... 1x Nos NS Carello headlight with original box - cheap aswell, just £35 plus postage



No problem just need the other side... not available from Ford... I checked with our local parts guy
Even got our Orion Register Ford parts guy on it... but his computer said no
Me being anti FB just said if you see owt let me know
A week ago getting late on he text me a link to one just put on eBay
A week of watching

And this evening

Purchase number 2... 1x Nos OS Carello headlight with original box - errrrrm, I needed it/ wanted it lol



Slight issue is seller won't post... but after a couple of texts to Orion Register members in that area and collection and postage is in hand...

It's odd, when I was a lad I used to hate Orions as they just made me think of old man cars but now I really like them. Yours is one of the nicest I've seen as well. Love it

My Dad had an Orion 1.6i Ghia in a lovely blue colour when I was young. He loved it and so did I - had a distinct new Ford smell!

Borbet C's are period retro wheels
I've got the Momo Arrows still, doubt I'll ever use them though
I loved the Comp TH's on my other Orion but everyone is on them now...
