    New Bloke from metal bashing land

    Hi all, been into odd and mad motors since a kid
    (Had Custom car/Street machine instead of the dandy)
    Currently running a sleeper
    MK4 Cortina with a 24v 2.9 Cossie hauling her along,
    Couple O pics





    Not exactly pro street
    but hoping I could slip in !!

    Welcome Fred from saddletown. What's the story with the car? Was it done by yourself, there was one done a few years ago by a loke called Mick in Tipton, very subtle, and went well

    Hiya Sid,
    Brought the car last year, engine was in
    but electrics, and plumbing was all to cock, ran like a bag of spanners, which was a bummer, as the seller said it was perfect!
    plumbing, most of the electrics now done, polybushed throughout.
    got a t9 box with a strengthened top plate to stop it twisting
    Need to uprate the brakes and fit a decent exhaust to it, (too much back pressure)
    Body work is blinking amazing for an old Ford, had a respray sometime in its past, not the best but you can get away with
    a lot of sins with white. Future plans - needs lowering, and Ive got this electric blue paint job in my head for
    some reason!!

    Thats if er indoors doesnt want to move blinking house again
