Nice cars!

 

 

Mark, your Focusd looks a tidy motor! Nice colour too! I hope you'll have an enjoyable time with her.

 

Not wanting to make you miss your Escorts even more, but I did promise to also put up a sound clip of my one.

Here you go:  a recent 'walkaround' video of it.   RsToy, note the slightly more 'agricultural' sound of the 1.6D, in relation to the 1.8D!

I would love my Escort to be in the same condition as yours, but unfortunately the bodywork is getting very tired, it is my daily runner and does about 9k a year.
Its a shame that you've got rodent problem, best to get rid of them as they can do serious damage.
I do have a 1992 Rover 214 in great condition i know its not a a Ford but i am into them too as well as Fords.

 

Doug thanks it's got a few nigly bit's needing doing but sofar touch wood it's been trouble free and pleasnt to drive and that is a very, very nice sounding and looking car I am impressed had I had the chance I'd have had the red estate looking that good.

 

Nudge it's probably a good idea to send it to have the bodywork done to have another decade of daily driving out of it :)

Awesome I look forward to seeing and hearing the the clips when you upload them incidentally the server I used is perfect for to upload the audio once you've digitized the recording, I know what you mean about it being strange about hearing a sound that has been dead for years when I listened to them it hit me after not hearing that engine for so long.

 

Don't worry about the parts since they are unique lol I'll hold them for you if you want them, as for the other bits I'm not worried lol they'll sell but it's getting around to it as part of the reason it's taken so long is sentimentality and the other part is probably not wanting to admit I'll not have another one either that or I'm just lazy lol but they've all got to go.

 

Hi both Combi Doug and nudge both own a 1.6D on this thread and i've had two myself

Thanks for putting those sound clips up. Always great to hear that familiar 1.6D sound. Sad though, that your cars met with such a terrible end!

I did a walkaround video of my estate a few weeks ago, which I will upload when I get a chance. You can then get to hear some up to date 1.6D engine noise!
I shall also dig out the tape recording I mentioned in an earlier post, of the 1.6D Combi, from around 1987. It's been many years since I last listened to that. It'll be strange hearing the sound of a vehicle that's been 'dead' for around a quarter of a century!

Re the 1.6D specific parts. Thanks for that. I may well get back to you on them, though if you can sell everything in the meantime, then please don't hold on to them just for me.

I'm just thinking of putting my Fiesta 1.6D back on the road. She's been on SORN for nearly 10 months, and I'm missing driving her!
