Hi all,
My names Gavin, i think this is about the only owners club ive not signed up to :) although owning LOTS of fords :)

Anyway here's my list of fords that i own, starting from my first two fiesta's which are now in car heaven...

^^ Aged 17 and DUMB!

Then i was Given a Mk2 Mondeo 1.8 TD LX and started work on that, Eventually turning out this...

I did all of this myself at the age of 18, Loved it to bits, i did the spraying, built my own brake lines etc dont even want to think what it cost me! But it was my own and i loved it...

Then i grew up abit and eventually sold it after some ass knocked the front end off :(

Anyway, I got this for 100 with T&T so this was to become my daily driver:

a fair bit of cleaning work done.. including a full interior strip to get rid of the mushrooms growing through the seats :( Dirty!

Then it dropped a valve and drove me from Tenby to Telford at around 30mph (Long ass drive!) and when i got home i got news my nan had been in an accident and destroyed her vectra, So the white escort i had lined up would no longer be available.. Bummer! i then bought a punto which to say the least lasted me 2 weeks, cost me a clutch, and a broken arm when the wheel hub decided to snap off and sent me though an old solid fence!

Then i got news nan had a new car so i inherited the white 1.4 CVH :) Higher insurance but a better car all round it was almost concourse! i loved it...

Here it is having my exhaust system etc swapped over...

then i sold it and bought myself an Audi A3 1.8T :) Fun.... but expensive and went wrong almost every errm, 10mins for the 2 weeks i owned it. so it went away, a whole host of other cars come my way including french/german etc etc and then i heard nan had another pristine escort, This time a 1998 Finesse, so i went n had a look and at the time she wanted a more economical car for work so a strait swap for my 2.2 Peugeot 406 HDI was on t he cards :) i took her arm off and said NO REFUNDS! lol

I've grown to love my finesse, it's been in 3 accidents since ive had it (none down to me!), 2 minor, 1 not so minor but it's pulled its way though all of the damage and now sits perfectly again.

AND... then this week i went and bought myself a H Reg Ford Escort Convertable (Mk4) Love it already!

I will get pics of my 2 latest escorts when i've got them togeather during the daylight.
