New Motor.

Hi guys .. Been a wee while.

Back in England now and bought a New ride .. Not a truck iam affraid but it's A Blue Oval

Ford Escort with a Pathetic 1.8 16v Zetec engine (I know ... I miss the 5.4)





It goes pretty good ... EX Autospec Show car so it's in Near Mint condition. Some fancy engine bling



And some Wilwood 4 pot's do all the stopping.



I hope everyone is well?

Ross

nice to see you made it ok,with the price of fuel over there you're probably glad you don't have the f150!


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

Big thanks guy's ... The weather's nice .. although windy.

Iam living in the North East part of the country .. 2 miles from the coast .. Nice to be home.

Canada: Well we are thinking of coming back late 2009 poss 2010. I passed my Red-Seal IP heavy Duty Mechanic Cert so things maybe straight forward.

Contacts in Fort-Mac say .. Wait till things pick up as they have frozen any out-side labour. Will be the first inline once things pick - back - up.

I'll be back ... This time it's All out F150 Warfare ... Supercharger's ... Big brakes etc etc ..

Thanks again ... Ross
