The clocks have changed, it’s officially British summer time, and the sun is shining (or at least it is as I type this – by the time you read it in a couple of weeks that could have all changed!). And I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for summer now. I’ve missed getting out to shows and events, and seeing people and their latest projects and developments, having a laugh with like-minded Ford fans, and of course, showing off our own Blue Ovals too. It’s at shows and events like that where we first clap eyes on some of the most inspiring cars in the scene; cars like Carl Taylor’s incredible RS Turbo. Of course, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but Carl didn’t build it to fit…

what car stuff have you been up to this month?

“I’ve been showing the RS some love for the first time in months. I admit I was a little weary of the first drive in nearly a year being a 200-mile trip to FJRS in Essex, but after a full service and health check my confidence has been restored. I can’t wait to use it more often in the coming weeks, and have been eyeing up mods and jobs that need doing too.” JAMIE, EDITOR “Pretty much everything has been car related for me recently; shooting several top feature cars, getting my Mk1 Sierra back on the road, and, most excitingly, having a little test session skidding about in my Cossie. It might have highlighted some issues that need immediate attention, but it’s all progress!” ADE, PHOTOGRAPHER “I’ve been treating the car to a…

He may have been in the modified Ford scene for more than three decades, but 53-year-old Paul Shelton still has an eye for detail, and the ability to ensure his car is the envy of the show field. Paul remains as passionate about his Fords now as he ever did, and his latest creation is this imposing 420bhp Mk3 Focus RS, containing an impressive inventory of well thought-out mods. It was no surprise Paul fell for Fords in his youth, as his dad always owned a Blue Oval. Often found tinkering with cars on the driveway or visiting a breaker’s yard on a Saturday morning, Paul would be there passing spanners and keeping him company. A Mk3 Focus RS certainly ranks within modern car territory, but Paul has also owned a string of…

MACH 1 ARRIVES FOR SUMMER In a world of electric vehicles and hybrid technology, Ford fans have got something decidedly old-school to look forward to this year – the most track-capable Mustang ever to go on sale in the UK is due to land in time for summer 2021. The new Mach 1 model is based on the successful GT, but comes packed full of factory upgrades. You’ll be pleased to hear the only battery on the Mach 1 is the 12v job required to start a proper petrol engine. And not just any engine, a full-fat 5.0-litre V8 that produces 454bhp thanks to a unique software calibration that revs to 7500rpm, coupled to an induction system and 87mm throttle body for sharper throttle response, and a uniquely-tuned ‘Active Valve’ performance exhaust.
