      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Anybody have any info on this model, as per my intro I've recently acquired a mint 23k one. Was a bit of a nightmare to get insurance for it, the company I was with refused to transfer my cover over as it wasn't on the database, when I went go compare and typed in the reg I got 5 different models. Direct Line eventually insured it but again not on their database so had to take the nearest model. Tried Mr Google but couldn't find much. I did find out there are only 77 left in UK, Does anybody have any info please ? Many thanks ....
  2. Hello

    Introduction first then, After a few years gap I have last week bought another Ford, a 1998 Escort Osprey. I was holding out for my dream car a Cortina mk3 but this will do in the meantime. I have previously owned a mk1 Fiesta, mk3 Escort and Mk5 Escort. A few Vauxhalls also but we won't go into that The Osprey I couldn't resist, it's absolutely mint and only done 23k, 1 previous old lady owner and full service history, I think I got a result. Just getting used to those wind down windows and I'm off after this to stick some tunes onto those old cassette tape things. My main passion however is hairdryers, well Vespa and Lambrettas to be precise of which I have a few but I will try not to bore you all with these and stick to the scooter forums for those. Good to meet you all and looking forwards to some Ford chat. No decent photos yet ....
