Re: Complete change!

Love a XR3 , rare model now . I had a 1990 Mercury grey XR3I . Nice one andy :cool: Hi JM. The XR3 is rarer but quite a few still about. Still plenty of XR3i varients around and the amount of interest in our cars at shows is high, so goes to show how many people can relate to the XR range of cars (...

Lovely! I do like a Mk3 Escort, specially one like this.
:cheers: MT
My second car was a Mk3 Escort and I've had a couple of XR3i's since.

The Mk4 is ok too but always preferred the Mk3 especially for looks :cool:

Re: Complete change!

Well, my second Stag experience became as bad as the first almost 20 years ago with constant issues :( So rather than keep throwing ££s at it and having scratched the V8 itch, I now have this DS.jpeg Underside.jpg 1981 XR3 that had a full exterior and mechanical rebuild to fast road spec in 2020 and...

Re: Wow. Check out how much this transit sold for...

These prices go to show not everyone is feeling the current economic squeeze. Could have been bought by dealers I suppose as this one sold for £21375 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/125613632565?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20180816085401%26meid%3Df75bb65a7f9...

Re: Post Edit?

If we all 'play nicely' then editing shouldn't be a problem. Good move. We always play nicely here! It's good to know that our spelling errors are not preserved for eternity too! :D Andrew. :agree: I noticed this recently but didn't think too much about it, the edit is always andy :sorry: handy :)

That's a good shout that is Andy. And she did appear in an episode of Kate.
Was a regular in the To the Manor Born
You are right, I knew the face but her name didn't mean a thing to me.

Well Tickover have been really good and as these come with a 12 month guarantee have sent out a replacement pair.

Re: Tailgate Struts

Hi Tom, how are your replacement struts? Mine have become very weak. When I first fitted them they opened the tailgate with a positive 'whoosh' and would actually hold the tailgate up at various angles.
