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
