I used to own a mk1 RS2000 Sebring Red ref-AAB 666M. I bought it off a local Rally Driver Ian Harrison. I loved it and used it on marshalling duties on the likes of the RAC, British Rally Championships etc. Sold it in 1984 and the Muppet I sold her to wrote her off after two days. Never to be replaced and lost forever !!!'

I’m in the market for a Mk 1 1300 Sport. Not too worried about condition as I have facilities / capability / enthusiasm to rebuild / restore. Current project near to completion and I’m looking for something else to keep me busy. Usual story, I had one when I was young (sold in 1980), and looking to recapture that period. Would join a small fleet of classics or soon-to-become classics so a good home assured. I appreciate quite rare now but prepared to wait……

If anyone has one for sale or knows of one for sale or even that might be for sale in the future please e-mail

Hi, many years ago in the early/mid eighties I owned two MK1 Mexicos, MMU 34K and TSB 85L. Would like to know if they're still around and looking good, thanks all.

The last issue was indeed the summer (159). Sadly we haven't been getting enough show reports, news, members cars, questions etc to produce the magazine as regularly as it once was. I'm putting the next issue together now actually and it has details of all the upcoming shows so hopefully there will be loads of reports flooding in as the show season slowly starts again (I'm off to my first show of the year in a couple of weeks myself)

Hi all,

Has there been a club mag since the summer one? I don't remember any Autumn or winter edition, and I'm sure I renewed my membership October as the cheque was cashed. Also would be interested in a place on the Santa Pod Classic Ford Show, Geoff have you had my emails? Cheers

Nice site and some useful info on Tech page. I'm Originally from the UK but now living in NZ and have always been a Ford fan. My sons now 18 & 17 have both got the Ford bug and drive Mk1 & 2 Escorts which are getting very hard to find over here :-(

I am organising Classic Ford for the club on 5th June 2016. The tickets are £18 in advance. I am trying to drum up as many members to attend the show so we can tell everyone that we are still out there. I would appreciate it if you could attend this show to support the club. If you are interested let me know ASAP and send me a self addressed envelope and a cheque payable to Geoff Lane and I will organise the tickets.
If you have any shows that you would like to attend in you area let me know via email so I can put them on the web site. Also visit the web site to see what shows are available in your area.

So glad to see that the club is still going and flourishing. As the original chairman of the club I was just wondering if any of the other original members, Tony, Paul, Mike etc. were still involved with the club ?
Happy New year to all your members
