Warmed over jelly mould with underseal halfway up the doors*.

Uncool.



*I know it isn't really underseal but it might have slowed the rust if it was.

Nah. What sort of big soft tart would have bought one of these when the mighty 2.8 injection Capri was still being sold new?

I know he had input on the mk3 Escort Chassis...

Just a shame they chose not to listen to him.

I've had four of the things (2 GLSis, 2 1.8LXs), and am trying to broker a deal through my wife for a fifth (slightly broken late 2.0 Ghia auto) from one of her friends, though she seems a less than keen negotiator. I don't think they are cool though.
