welcome to the november issue!

What's the best thing about the Ford scene, for you? For me, it has to be the huge and diverse mix of cars (and people!) that we encounter every time we attend a show, a meet, or just generally enjoy our hobby of owning and driving modified Blue Ovals. Yes, you will have your personal preferences – we all do – (mine are as varied as the Sapphire Cosworth to the Mk3 Focus RS, and I must admit the Mk8 Fiesta ST is worming its way into my affections too!) but we are blessed to be part of a thriving and immensely varied scene that, quite frankly, nothing else can match.

second glances, second chances

If you don’t turn around and glance back at your car after you’ve parked it, you’ve got the wrong car. That’s one of the immutable constants of automobile ownership, and it’s particularly true in the modifying scene. There are cars that thrive and flourish on the passion of their owners (the majority of the motors that you guys out there drive, for example) which will always elicit a cheeky over-the-shoulder look as the driver walks away, and there are cars that are simply functional and devoid of emotion – say, the base model 1.0 Corsas bought from Cargiant – which are merely appliances. Lock it and leave. And it’s because you’re of the former persuasion that you’re reading this magazine. Now, this effervescent vividity comes from the personalities that we bestow…

COSWORTH DRIVERS CLUB TAKES OVER LONDON CARTEL SHOW The London Cartel International Auto Show is an event that’s been growing in stature recently, and while it may have its roots firmly in the VW scene, it’s been the mighty Blue Oval that’s been stealing all the limelight recently. Specifically, the fast Fords that have an association with the legendary tuning powerhouse that is Cosworth, as at the 2019 event the Cosworth Drivers Club won the trophy for ‘Best Club Stand’ by virtue of the fact that they showed up with over fifty pristine cars to display. “It was an amazing day,” said club founder Paul Thatcher. “With over fifty cars spanning 1966-2019, we even took over the local high street prior to the show – it was incredible!
