Every year at this time, as we put together the Classic Ford Awards, it gives us the opportunity to reflect (in between arguing over who should be selected) on the season just gone, and perhaps more importantly, focus on the year ahead. Every year, too, we generally agree that it’s been one of the best yet for the old Ford scene, with the standard of cars, parts and shows just getting better and better, and wonder if the coming months will see those standards raised. And of course they will be, because it’s in all of us to try and improve on what we’ve done before, whether we’re tinkerers or fully-fledged restorers.So here’s to what’s been a cracking 2018, and what should be an even better 2019.

silver dream machine

Incredibly, Russell Lord has finished the Silver Escort (featured August 2018 issue) — his miniature Escort RS1800 hand-made entirely in silver (with the odd bit of gold and diamond). Russell plans to exhibit his incredible creation at various events in 2019, then it’s hoped the Escort will be auctioned off with proceeds going to two children’s charities close to Russell’s heart in the Summer. www.russelllordbespoke.com ■…
