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

Iconic car, paul. Always wanted one of the Mk1s but the escort was totally out of production by the time i could afford any car!!

Yeah, me too Dave. A MkI RS with flared arches and painted in Moonstone Blue was once my ideal car!!!

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
