I checked out For the Love of Cars at the weekend, I wasn’t expecting much to be honest but there was nothing on and this was about cars. I ended up really enjoying it, the show followed Philip Glenister (Fire up the quattro yo!!) and his mechanic friend as they rescued a rotten old Mk1 Escort Mexico and restored it in all it’s glory. It’s left me with a real hankering for Ford’s rear wheel drive legend. Definitely now top of the classic car dream list. Here’s a nice little clip showing what they’re all about…..
A spot of Essex Hot-Hatchness, 80s cool. You don’t see many of these badboys on the road these days, maybe because they rust like crazy and the engines clog up with oil over time! That’s why I always appreciate seeing one out and about.
