CLASSIC FORD THE PERFECT FESTIVE GIFT! SEE PAGE 114 Although life is far from back to pre-pandemic times, it’s been great to see so many show and runs taking place over the summer months. Because while working on your classic Ford is a hugely satisfying experience (except maybe when things goes wrong), getting out and about in your car along with fellow enthusiasts just can’t be beat — even if it’s a relatively lowkey affair like the Summit Run (above and page 74). With winter now ahead of us in the northern hemisphere we’ve got our sight set firmly on the 2022 show season and we’ve already announced details of the Classic Ford Tour (see pages 12 and 78), which, fingers’ crossed’ will see upwards of 80 old Fords heading to Dover to…

face off

Name: Danny Jones From: South Yorkshire Age: 39 Job: Mechanic Car: 1975 Mk2 Escort 1.3 estate Start condition: Bare rolling shell with rust and a pan full of nuts and bolts Condition now: Welding and paintwork complete, engine and most of running gear in place Expected time of completion: No completion date as yet A Mk2 Escort estate wouldn’t normally come top of the list when choosing a track car, but 39-year-old mechanic, Danny Jones likes to be different. Bought unseen for a bargain price as a rolling shell, Danny was confident this potentially risky purchase would make the perfect blank canvas for his next project. Having grown up surrounded by family members working on old Fords from an early age, Danny is certainly no stranger to the blue oval badge and he’s pretty handy with a set of…

The four-day, three-night 2022 Classic Ford Tour will take place over the long weekend of May 6-9, and will be to the Medieval city of Bruges.

back in the day

5 YEARS AGO NOVEMBER 2016 This time five years ago we were all about the Mk2 Cortina, as the boxy saloon (and estate) celebrated its 50th birthday. Featuring a trio of unique Aussie examples, it was a great way to mark the occasion. Elsewhere we featured what is possibly the only Zetec SE-powered Anglia — and a superb conversion it was too! 10 YEARS AGO NOVEMBER 2011 A decade ago, this Cologne-arched Mk1 Capri was literally bursting out of the front cover. Later repainted in the classic Frami Racing livery, it then dropped out of sight. Also in this issue was Jamie Gough’s 2.4-litre track day Mk2 Escort, now transformed into a race car, and we spent a weekend on the spanners with Dave Fisher.
