Takes me back to the days of 'Mine's called clit'

Uncool. Might manage an RS1600i in white with blue trim though.

I loved them at the time. Nearly bought one but a silly insurance quote put the kybosh on that. It looks too much like a refugee from the 80s now though. Uncool (narrowly).

back in the day I owned a yellow 1.6L model and dressed it up to look like an XR3

On the shopping list were, alloys, rear spoiler, front spoiler, n/s door mirror, rear wash wipe and bolt-on rev counter on the dash

Biggest give away was the fact it was a 5 door model

I had the "pleasure" of owning a really good condition XR3i facelift about 10 years ago.

To be honest I thought it was rubbish.

Also seriously uncool due to the Max power brigade.

Cool but then I have to say that as I have a xr3i cabriolet. Mine is 100% original and looks like it's just been driven out of the showroom.

Wow opinion is really divided on this one. Wouldn't want one but liked them back in the day and still cool for me.

Couple of pics of mine. I agree they aren't to everyone's taste. But I've had mine 15 years now and can't ever see me getting rid of it.

The train :(

A vehicle that I considered to be so horrible, that I did not like Fords for many many years.

Jeez that's clean. A late one with EFi as opposed to K-Jet if I'm not mistaken. I liked the later bumper a lot more too.
