Very nice collection! No worries about the English, it might be better than some Americans! Are you just an enthusiast, or do you also work with cars as a profession as well?

I was becoming more and more jealous the farther down the page i scrolled, until I got to the cossie, then my jealousy turned to hate. Very nice collection! (dont worry, I dont hate you, just a little USA sarcasm) Whats in the works for the XR?

So, how much do you pay for insurance on the Escort Cossie?

Got the car home.
It is almost rust free this is not normal in Denmark :-)
A little history on the car. It was built in Germany 8 / 1985
Purchased by a Dane in Illinois when he moved back to Denmark in 1991, he took it home. Here he drove the car for 2002 . Since then it has been in a barn.

Little tip: I'm not sure if you can get them over there, but the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser will help take all the chaulkiness off the body cladding.

I just noticed that the Sierra is a 4dr. That will make it tough to use the flares, I guess. What year is the Sierra ?
