I think this one started life as a 1300gt , has the 6 gauge dash, and a 1600 x flow, a bit lowered but otherwise pretty basic. Same guy I got my Capri off .

That's a stunning looking Escort.
Has your Uncle let you drive it yet? On second thoughts, given recent form it's probably best he keeps you away from it ! :lol:

Nice Diff'rent Strokes reference there! I used to love that programme as a kid, but I watched an episode not so long ago and it was nowhere near as funny as I remembered it being.
