Cheers guys. The beauty of this one was that a Ford KA was literally 4-5 seconds in front of this Ezzie, so there was a little extra dust in the bgnd ... got them both on one shot, just Wink

I used to own a Mk1 Escort RS2000 , the only car I owned that scared me to death, but I loved driving it at the same time. now I own a tame Mondeo Diesel Smile.
Thanks for the Mk 1 Memories
