MK2 XR2 which I converted to turbo powered 2.1 ZVH with T4 turbo etc...

Image

My 1990 RS Turbo

Image

Mk1 XR2 Converted to Turbo

Image

MK2 XR2 Turbo (which went a tad wrong :cry: )

Image
Image

MK4 Escort Cabrio Turbo

Image


Another MK1 XR2

Loving the classic Fords Adam 8)

Oh, and of course for obvious reasons the Legacy gets a nod of respect too. Very underated cars. We took ours to the NBO Subaru Show this year to be on our club stand. About 430 cars turned up.....427 were Imprezas.....3 Legacys :roll: :lol:

Hey 'Wooly pluto'

Fellow Merc cossy lover here.

This was my old ride but i had to sell her :cry:

it was in decent condition and then the SLS packed up so the mods began. H+K suspension kit, adjustable rear tack rods, lightenend pulleys, corbeau interior - and i was putting together efi kit for her.

no, this was the 2.3-16v.

the only 2.5's i could find were automatic.

i will own one of these again - once i've got a garage. then i can go to town on it.

when i found out the sls was kaput i then wanted to make it for track days - kind of like this 190e mod but with the Evo1 arches in stead.

Image

when i first got my 'cossy' checked out, this garage owner had an Evo2. Super rare and imo one of the most awesome cars around.
