would that be mr jenkins perchance? hopefully i'm going to be part of his remapping empire somewhere along the line


Yup!

Would be cool if he could do something.

Good luck partnering up with him, I reckon there will be a big market for it 8)

You must be gutted to be losing the capri but that project looks awesome. What engine will go in?

Polo looks pretty hard! What are the wheels? Can't say i.ve seen them before. What's the polo like on fuel? Could be a cool car for the mrs when she's killed the saxo vtr she's about to get

Picked this up yesterday.

36,112 on the clock. Service book stamped last sevice at 34,305. All MOTs present to back up mileage.

Nice all round as you can see but small amount of rust in the boot, badly repaired, will be dealt with right away.

1.1 so not a racer but original and cheap to run.

Yeah, sad to see the Capri go, especially as i probably wont get another 3.0S :(

The Escort is pretty cool though, it's been a Tarmac car all it's
days so the shell is 100% solid, just a little untidy with cracked
filler around the arches etc, also the front is a bit rough through
punting hay bales out the way, going to be fitting MK4 bumpers
though so this will be covered.

It ran a stout Rover V8 in it's day, apparently was very
successfull, ranked 7th in it's last rally in Belgium
(still had it's stickers on when i got it)

Build plan for now is (it's changed a few times), five linked
2.0 or 2.8i Capri back axle, type 9 or MT75 Ford five speed box,
Vauxhall 2.0 16V XE motor running on Jenvey (or similar) throttle
bodies, plain red bodywork, 9x15 Revolution five spokes in white,
interior will be Sparco buckets with harnesses, RS Turbo dash, door
cards and electric windows (already have these), bolt in cage,
standard Escort heater wont fit due to trans tunnel so going to
use a universal Kit car one.

I've no intention to race or rally it, going to use it as a road car.

The wheels on the Polo are 7x13 Borbets, they are pretty rare
from what i've gathered, motor is a standard 1.3 MPI GT one,
only 74 bhp but pretty nippy, fuel is pretty good even driving with
lead boots on :lol:

Time to lower the tone :lol:
Skoda Ocatvia 4x4. Superb for all my needs, swallows bikes, walking kit and even camping gear without problems. The 4x4 proved it self last winter. Boring compared to some, but i love it.

The works run about :D

Yep, it's really good. There's a small amount of corrosion in the boot, around the passenger side rear lamp cluster, which has been repaired (badly) so I'm having that sorted. Also, it has a Clarion radio fitted, which I'm ditching in favour of the original Ford 2015 radio as I have one lying around.
