A great programme/series,  Just love it.:clap:

 

I am in the middle of restoring a 1992 Escort Cosworth Lux so I can easily relate to this stuff.

Wowsers trousers Alex fantastic as usual.

 

Is it far off completion? Where does the jet engine fit?:D

 

Nice to see you still playing with these toys. B)

 

The one thing I always wanted a bleedin lift. Taken me 20 years to get a house with a decent sized garage but still no life.. unless I increase the size of the roof :surrender:

Almost there Stan,

 

Just got the interior to finish off and the engine bay.

 

Then a full detail which I will contract out as I do not have the required skills I am afraid.

 

It has only done 29,000 miles and it has been mine since new, but it was getting a little bit tired so a freshen up was required as it had been in storage for the past 18 years

 

Totally standard car except for a stainless steel exhaust and all original panels and never been tracked.

 

It is the early model with the big turbo which was the homologation car and has the (unused) water bag in the boot and the pumps under the rear seat for the water injection

 

I have decided to sell it and let someone else have the pleasure of driving and owning a Ford Escort Cosworth Lux.  so it will probably go to auction next year.

 

Do you recognise this one Stan?  Fresh MOT very recently.

Wow you had it from new?!! Amazing.

Haha you STILL  have Reg?!:D

Did you ever fix the turbo activator or whatever it was that makes it kick in? T4's go on forever.

 

I still have the T2 I got that day although that guy was a shister. I don't recommend using a hose pipe as a vacuum brake pipe amongst other things! :surrender: I fixed all that and did it right but now replacing arches with genuine VW ones and painting them underneath too... long story.

Yes Irfan, still got the Jag:

 

1989 V12,  had it from new and only 12,000 miles. No Rust.

 

This one is next in line for a small recommission and a cosmetic respray.

Both owned from new, would be interesting to see how much you sell them for. Do you think you’ll make a profit?

Knowing how well Alex looks after and sorts his stuff out I expect so.

 

If you have a cheeky Toyota S2000GT under a tarp better get that to audition.
