Very nice. Always loved these and still do. My first car was a 1.3L mk2 with chrome rostyles, loved it.

I Reckon a flask of coffee and I could sit and look at your car all day. The pinto in a mk3 Cortina made 98 bhp .With the mods you have it must be more than 104.I think the RR was just a bit more than a bit low .Just thinking ,a rare occurrence these days I know . I was wondering what would happen if you drove your car around super car ally in London .Would we see the older people chasing your car instead of the youngsters chasings Lambos and the like. I've forgotten a lot now but I do remember the guy who ported the head for me had to find me another head because he buggered up matching the flow between the bin lid size valves on the outlet compared to the more normal in let It could have been the other way around ,as I say it was a long time ago.I only think he made the error because he'd just taken delivery of a flow bench. I couldn't afford a steel crank so it had to be lighten balanced Omega pistons decent matched con rods, Piper cam vernier pulley. Webber twin 40's For some reason it wouldn't take 48's but still managed to drink more than me and my mates put together .Oh and an uprated fuel pump clutch 200e gearbox etc I do remember working all the hours God sent to pay for it all. I think if I'm being honest while I had the brains to put it all together I didn't have the driving skill to exploit all the power .Away from the lights one night I creamed a police Capri .Only because the Police were too tight to put spec LSD's in the 3ltr s they had .He wheel spun more on purpose I think to see if he could get a chase out of us . What a copper we spent ages talking to him . I Love watching the Irish lads in their MK2s on Motors tv .One in particular a fella by the name of Frank Kelly .That man can throw an Escort around
Never the less you have a beautiful car that's made it uncomfortable to sit down or walk. Hand on heart I have to confess to being just a tad jealous of your steed
Take care all the best with her
Darren

Well isnt that a lovely old girl. Nice to see one thats no over-restored and 'plastic' looking.
Use her, love her and enjoy her.
