Mk1 Ford Lotus Escort 1969

Recommended Posts

Don't talk shite malt :laugh: the mk1 and 2 are the best closely followed by the 5 , not a feckin 3 there bottom of the list , though I wouldn't of minded a savage :smile:

 

Must say the mk5's was nice, think they did one called a crusuader with a 2.3 lump under the bonnet? :thumbs:

 

What size engine did the MK1 lotus have in in chid? I would think they would fetch a few bob these days.......

Fell of my chair when I saw the value of this.

 

Had a MK1 1974 plate when I first passed my test but mine was a little 1100, bet that would be worth a few quid these days now too :thumbs:

Opel Kadett :bad: ...cor blimey that brings back memories,breaking down in the Rotherhithe Tunnel on the way to Millwalls ground only for the gearbox to fall out coming over Tower Bridge on the way back we must of been about 19....just walked away and left it f****n useless thing !.....Then had a Vauxhall Victor that was even worse !.....funny times.

 

The mk 1 facelift capri took some beating for looks in my opinion.
