  1. Happy Birthday mk1piman!

  2. cheers
  3. Hi I have posted this on Escort page but thought I would put it on classic as well Hi Chaps................just joined after buying an 83 Ghia,which is Silver, 5spd manual with 71k on the clock.The car is in very good condition but I have had few teething problems such as :- heater motor siezed (now fixed) but still getting no heat through .............will this be a blockage?.Also need to locate some tailgate struts and can anybody tell me if anything is common?.I am currently cleaning the car,as it has been wax oiled from new and although this as saved the car from rotting,it doesn't in my opinion look pleaseing to the eye esp under the bonnet.The car drives spot on but if I am totally honest,I only bought the car as away of helping fund buying another classic but a Triumph,as these are my main passion but one day I hope to own a nice Series 1 Turbo. Cheers.

  5. Hi Chaps...............just bought a Y plate Escort 1600 Ghia and must admit that I am basically a Triumph enthusiast,as I currently own two Mk1 pi saloons.Anyway,as stated I bought the Escort,because I love the shape of the MK3 especially the RS Turbo and injection models and this Ghia just happened to pop along and I bought it on an impulse to help fund another Triumph that I used to own and have the chance of buying back. The car itself is a one previous owner,with 77k on the clock and as stamped history upto 69k and drives lovely.I think it hads been laid up for a while as the heater motor had siezed (now fixed) and having problems getting heat through,yet to investigate. Will ask few questions about my problems on help pages. Cheers..........
