Hello,

I am new to this forum, I have a g reg diesel escort that is in need of some work.

It is a car that has been in the family since new but for the last 2 years has been sat SWORN under covers on the drive in need of some work, I can't bring myself to scrap the poor old girl as there are too many good memories. so I thought I would put it on an enthusiasts website and offer it for free to anybody that would give it a good home and hopefully restore her to former glory.

Have something to contribute?

Welcome to the Forum,
if you get a moment join photobucket and upload some picture's of your motor,
you can then link them to this forum,
once uploaded go to Album,

below or above each picture on photobucket is an Image URL
copy this URL and paste it in to your posts
once pasted in the post remove the
.img
from either side of the link then its job done,

also check out DMB Graphics for Badge overlays or Original Vintage decals Click Here

Hope this helps B)

Hi,

Thanks for the replies, the work that needs carrying out is structural specifically rust on the sub frame according to the MOT certificate due to some rust.
I haven't been able to get any photos yet as she is under covers and I have been at a wedding.
I shall try to post some photos next weekend.

Hi,

I am in Sittingbourne Kent, just to re-iterate I will only sell the car to a good home to be restored.

Yeh a bit far for me to travel i am afrade, Would of loved to restore it to its former glory i miss my old mk4 absolutly love em.

I am a mechanic and would have done it up mate, I hate it when people take a repareable car and scrap it especially when its a classic (2nd car was a mk3 Escort in bright orange and 3rd was a mk4 RST)
