    I guess you're going to put the strengthening/cage in afterwards?
    I like Escort Mk1's.

    There is a lot of MK1 Escorts in Malta. They love them over there , lots of them used for Drag Racing.

    The last I knew of the Tender Trap Escort , Trevor at B&H in Doncaster owned it , that was a few years ago though.
