Full Version: Proud new Ford owner (new owner, not new Ford).
Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > Welcome to Ford Owners Club > New Member Introductions
I would just like to introduce myself as a new member. I live in Belgium and have just bought the sorry looking Escort attached in the photo. Surprising what a quick wash and hoovering did for this car. It had been living in a hedge for a few months but has come up very nicely. Just a few new hoses and a tweak of the brakes and she's a runner! It's a 1978 1.3L auto and its surprising how well these old Escorts feel compared to big heavy modern motors. My other motor is a BMW 730d so the difference is......massive. I'm looking forward to getting into old Fords now. If any of you have something similar that's looking for a good home, please get in touch.

hello mate, thats a very tidy looking mk2 considering its been stuck in a hedge B)

people would pay good money for clean 2 door shell, especially with it being an auto as it has
the large gearbox tunnel as standard B)
Funny you should say that Steve, somebody just bought it. Now has anyone got another one?

Hi and welcome to the club.
What a nice place this is. Plenty of welcoming folk. I've just decided I am now a Ford man.
So what's the BEST one to own?

That is a tough question. I guess that it deppends on what you want out of a Ford. Before you can say which one is best.
