Everyone needs a hobby.

Yours is collecting thirsty money pits!

The number of track days I have seen yellow flagged when a cossie starts smoking....

I guess by the multicolour hoses it's not exactly a virgin?
It's not mine mate - I couldn't afford to keep up with maintenance or fuel costs.

And no, it's certainly not a virgin - And yes, it is smoking !
It started smoking this morning... Which is why it's at my work so we could compression test it this afternoon... Looks like it's the turbo oil seals on the hot side.

Guess what job i've been lumbered with :lol

And what do you mean, I collect money pits ? :lol My car has cost me next to feck all to get it where it is now ! I've done all/most of the work myself :)

absolute classic, the escort and sierra were actually the same car, the floorpan was shortened and made to look like an escort, it only shared the doors and windscreen with the escort, in fact the first ones had hacksaw marks on em where engineers had worked things out

Sapphire Cossie. One of my fav cars, I love them and the whale tail cossies. A guy I know has an RS500 in secure storage with delivery miles...:eek

I have a big soft spot for the old cosworths...:cool

I do like cossies as you can't deny they're a bit special (ignoring granada variants...) but the premium that Escort Cosworths fetch is just crazy imo.
