Cool eBay find #159

I do love a fast Ford, and recently I’ve had a hankering for a mk1 Escort, but finished in the right way. This little RS2000 replica popped up on eBay a couple of days ago and as you can see from the bidding I’m not the only one who is a big fan of it. Bidding currently stands at over £20,000 with over 5 days to go. This replica looks like it was built from a nice car too as it doesn’t appear the mounts have been plated as is common with these. The Zetec engine fitted may not be to everyone’s taste but I think its a great choice and looks to suit the car well also. The five speed box and LSD should also provide some entertainment for whoever manages to buy it. I look forward to seeing how much this actually does make in the end though.

The London Classic Car Show 2018

I can’t believe a year has passed since I visited the London Classic Car Show at the ExCeL in London, but somehow it has. The show seemed to be a little smaller perhaps this year, though the layout was different so I could easily be mistaken. As alway there were many fantastic cars to see and many for sale also. I didn’t spend so much time watching the parade this year though what I did see did look fantastic also, especially since there were a couple of very non-original cars included in the line up.

I’ve included a gallery of some of my photos from the day below, this is an event that is well worth attending for anyone who likes classic cars.

Cool eBay Find #158: Porsche 924 Turbo Project

Front engined Porsches are starting to get the recognition that we all know they deserved, and if you can find one with a ‘Turbo’ badge then you really could be in the money. This find is in pretty poor condition and is a bit strongly priced personally, but it does come with a spare parts car that you could really have some fun with as a second project.
