Congratulations your Lordship does this mean the butler will be returning along with the sofa, sorry chauffer

Monday two old Vauxhalls came down slip road but I was too slow to get a picture, Velocets ? I think they were, quite a big car for the time.

Parked outside the shed here is an old Escort that the recovery boss has bought her son who takes his driving test today. Will get a couple of pics for you.

Couple of pics of the Escort.

Mum is now wondering about the fact it has no ABS or Airbags
never mind the fact replacement panels will be a nightmare to source

It can't be a RS as it has 4 doors and they had a twin head light cone fitted
