    That's brilliant, thanks a lot!

    My dad designed and airbrushed the car back in the day but i've only ever seen pics of it from the mag feature.

    Does anybody know if the car still exists??

    I was a Runner-Up in the CC competition to design the paintwork!

    All I got was a poxy book on how the Fiesta was designed and developed by Ford...............
    The clue is in the name

    Actually, it wasn't a Fiestavan, as they hadn't been 'invented' then.
    The panelled in side windows of the Custom Car Fiesta was the reason why the Fiestavan came about.
    ......believe me, I know.
    ...old enough to know better !!

    I remember something about that at the time, seem to remember CC printing something along thoes lines after the launch of the Fiesta van.
