This old lady was looking her age when we bought her a few weeks ago. But with a few new parts and some tlc she's back to her best. Brought back loads of memories whilst doing her up.

Just the pure joy of a carb old school ford. Paint work a mile deep. it was a real blast from the past. Put some serious man hours into her but the result was worth all the sweat. I even had the cougar gurn whilst driving her for MOT today which she passed without any advisories.
Sunburst xr3i is next for the treatment but unfortunatly not ours.

Lovely old school Fezza. My first car was a MKII, unfortunately it was only a 950 popular plus, very many happy memories none the less. :)

Nice one mate, those old XR2's were quite something in their day, although still not bad now. That one looked in good nick for it's age - bet the new owner is as pleased as punch.

An old work colleague up in Lincoln (worked at Starglaze) used to have a silver one - which was totally mad - he had done all sorts of work under the bonnet and had a race clutch in it as well as a full Janspeed exhaust system. That thing was lightning quick and would give most boy racers a run for their money - I almost bought it - wish I had, but that was then and this is now.
