Re: 1985 Mercury Merkur XR4Ti

What a difference a machine polish, bumper treatment and a set of wheels can do to transform a car!!! The Merkurs paint isnt the greatest at the best of times, and yesterday (the top photo) it was in a really sorry state.

Re: 1989 Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth 2wd

So was depending on my Wolfrace Silverstones being ready for the Ford Fair in Northern Ireland!! It never happened. So in a last day rush i bought some cheap new old stock Maxxis 215/40/16 tyres and pulled the gold OZ Mags off the fiesta rs turbo. http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o166/JohnMaxwell1...

Re: RS200 Replica at Bob's Big Boy in LA California!

With the Renault tranny becoming more difficult to find, I wonder if they're moving to an Audi transaxle or something newer. Yes RS200 kit cars, are starting to use Audi 80/90/100/200 front-wheel drive gearboxes, as the Renault 21/25/30 gearboxes are nearly non existant in Europe, never mind the US...

Re: 1985 Mercury Merkur XR4Ti

If you can slip some "merkur" and "xr4ti" badges into your luggage, that would be great. When are you going to ths south?? If you are near to Dublin, go to the RS Owners Club Ireland meet in Tullamore on the 13th July in the "Colton Ford" dealership. Here is the forum for more info: http://z13.invis...

Thanks buddy!!

Yeah It is very clean. Having stuff from a warm climate like the US, can work in your favour. The climate in the UK and Ireland is terrible. Its not any better than parking your car in the sea!! Lol
