Greetings All,
I've been lurking for some time, although I'm not new to English Fords. I've owned a 1968 Cortina GT, a 1963 Cortina, and a 1966 Cortina GT. I am currently looking for a pre air flow Mk1 2 door.
My current cars are a 1966 Morris Mini Mk1 and a 1957 Austin A35 that needs a new home...
I'm in Federal Way, Washington, center of the known universe.

Welcome Tom,

I remember you and one of your earlier Cortinas from beck in the day (the 20th century). Hope that you find the pre-airflow model that you are looking for.

Michael

Thanks Michael,
It is hard to believe but that Cortina GT has been gone almost nine years. I sold the car to a fellow from Cincinnati. He flew out, drove it around the block, made an offer, then sent a shipper to pick it up. It was loaded to the bumps with extra parts as the driver of the rig pulled away. It is one of the cars I should not have let slip away.

Hey Tom,

Glad you came to your senses and joined up to the other side of car fun. I too have Minis and thought I recognized the Pigpen sign in from Mini Mania/SAMOA forums, welcome to the other car craziness. I too am a member with SAMOA and on Mini Manias forum as GreenThumb but also own a 1966 MKI Cortina GT.
If your looking for a Cortina I sometimes stumble into people selling theirs so I will add you to the growing list. I personally don't need another Cortina but I will certainly help you find one.

Thanks Steve,
Several weeks ago I spotted a Mk1 body on a Scout chassis and the wheels started turning...a blank canvas was enticing...but the car sold. The body has resurfaced sans the Scout bits (a much more appealing proposition) but I don't have the time to fund such a project.
I did, however, find something that I was NOT looking for. I bougt a Fiesta! Certainly not a Cortina, but it has all the right bits and it is not a huge project. There seems to be a large group of clandestine Fiesta owners out and about. I'm looking forward to this next adventure. It will look good next to my Mini.

Tom,

Love to see a picture of your Fiesta when you get a chance.

The car just arrived yesterday. I'll post pics after I wash it.
