I have been a fan of British automobiles for quite a while. I have owned a few MGs and a couple of Jaguar sedans. In 1977 I bought a 1968 Ford Cortina GT while in the Navy and stationed in San Diego. I enjoyed the car very much but had to sell it when I got transfered over seas. I resently got the opportunity to purchased a 1968 Ford Cortina DeLux. The car is complete and in good shape but has not run in many years. I am happy to to find this forum and look forward to seeing how others have solved the problems I am bound to run into.

Hi Tom,
Welcome to another Mid-Western. I am in SE Michigan. My First car was a 1970 Cortina GT. Great little car!
Cheers

Tom B., I had my Corty sit up for 20 years and with a little work I am about to put her back on the road - luckily these are dead simple cars.
