It’s official: the world’s greatest classic Ford magazine has a new staff writer – say hello to Jamie Arkle.
If there’s an old Ford for sale, and it’s 2500 miles away, Bryn will buy it. His latest acquisition is a 1964 Mk1 Cortina found in Finland.
Excellent footage from last weekend’s Jersey Rally. Keep your eyes peeled for our very own JJ Gallagher in his green Mk2 Escort aka The Mutt – performing his obligatory doughnut!
Not sure where in the UK you can pick up the latest issue of Classic Ford magazine? Help is at hand!
The front end bodywork repairs on Simon’s Corsair project are complete? Are you sure?
The continual discovery of rot where it’s not wanted is not putting off Simon and Jon Hill from ploughing on with the Corsair rebuild.
We’re looking for a Production Assistant to join the best-selling classic Ford magazine.
The Corsair’s been butchered… but for all the right reasons.
It’s new car time at the home of Holmes, and he’s bought a rear-driver! You may recognise it too!
I’m the newest addition to the Classic Ford team having been here for a few months, and in that time I’ve been slowly working on my project – a Mk1 Fiesta.
It’s minor update time – with the emphasis definitely on the ‘minor’ part…
It’s not worth the bother of tuning up an Essex V4, right? After a bit of page-flicking, Simon’s not so sure…
Ade has been a lifelong Ford fan with no real persuasion…
If you cut him, he bleeds petrol…
Parts-hunting aside, not much happened to the Corsair in the first seven months of 2009. All too soon it was August, and I realised if I didn’t get busy, the show season would be over for another year.
His motto is simple: ‘Once you go Rat, you never go back!’
Bungle has a rich history of crumbly classic Ford ownership, which he’s only too happy to tell us about.
Racin’ Jason came onto the UK classic Ford scene when he rocked up with the missus in a flatfront, big-arch Mk2 Escort at our Classic Ford Tour of 2002.
The wait’s been well worth it – here’s Gareth’s Mk2 Escort on Sanspeed’s rollers, and being given a quick squirt up the road.
Full time on the mag since the back-end of 2006, but since gone freelance, Gareth’s very approachable if you want to bribe your way into the magazine, buy him a drink or generally say nice things about Classic Ford, his features or anything Gareth-related.
Simon was introduced to the cult of old Fords after picking up a copy of Street Machine magazine featuring two slammed, South London Mk1 Cortinas back in the early 1990s.
