Mk2 EscortFirst rally: UK Rally Challenge 3 2002
Last rally: Tour of Mull 2002
We were on the lookout for a relatively cheap car (compared to the Nova) which would allow us to do some tarmac events as the Nova isn't particularly suited to tarmac. The Mk2 Escort was advertised and we decided to go and have a look at it.
The car was in Fife which wasn't too far away
so we went to see it the weekend before the Argyll Rally
2002. The car was in pretty good shape for its age with no
rust on it although it had a few dents on the bodywork. The
engine hadn't been started for a few years and it sounded as
if it could be a few more before it would fire into life.
Sam and Donald (who was selling the car) spent around 3
hours fiddling with the engine and it eventually burst into
life. Shortly thereafter the deal was done and we had agreed
to go back midweek to pick the car up.
