You could have a stainless radiator panel made up with that written on it!

I was thinking of a electric fence around our cars but Marie said she thought it would not work due to health and safety :lol:

Lovely motor! That Cardinal Red is a stunning colour! You have done well there.

Interested to see what you were saying about the XR Sierra. That was quite a nice tool, wasn't it ? Or did you not think so ?

Thanks mate :cheers:

Sierra was a great car and undervalued imo....Wouldn't have sold it for a long while if it wasn't for the paint issue :(

Always preferred the Capri though :D

Seeing you say that about the Capri vs Sierra - do you know the story that was placed into history a bit sharpish because Ford scored an own goal with these motors ?

I'll stick something up on the "Rant" area of the board instead of decimating your come back thread. It'll be good for you to see but also all to see. :D

Hi Andy, I bet your grandsons are Petrol Heads with you as a role model :D
Unfortunately, I can’t open the image, having the same trouble with a few that Andrew has added lately :banghead:
Don’t know if it’s just me :headscratch: but I feel I’m missing out :cry:
