Hi Everyone. My name is Brent and go under the signature Kiwi Cortina. Yes I am originally from New Zealand where Cortinas were a staple of our teenage years. My family having had a MK2 GTE, a MK2 with a 3 litre V6 stuffed into it and I had MK1 Capri wth a 2.0 V4 English assembled.
I now live in San Francisco Bay area and have just purchased a MK2 GT1600. It is a full project for my son and I, so I am going to have lots of questions on where to get parts as well as restoration questions. Look forward to chatting with you all as my project progresses.

I have a website for the build progress. www.KiwiCortina.com

Cheers

Welcome from a member in the chilly UK. The place where you got your Cortina looks interesting with the Anglia next to it and another Cortina plus some other cars that I can't see properly. Good luck with the project.

Hey welcome Brent!

Nice that you joined up with us we need more input and its nice to see someone posting their project here.
The City is a nice place to live in fact I spent time growing up in Marin for a time in my youth but ended up in the south bay working in the Silicon Valley for 30yrs.
I'm in the process of restoring a vintage BMW motorcycle for a friend and he said to give it its maiden voyage by riding down the coast to Monterey to visit my 90yr old Mum this coming summer, we'll see!

Cheers,
Steve

Looks like you bought it from Bob in Berkley, how did that go? I was trying to buy one of his Mk1's a few years back but couldn't muster the money he wanted for it, though in the pictures it looked nice (the white GT)

Good luck with the Project! Any plans for it?

He is also working on a white one that runs and he was saying he wanted 6 or upwards depending on how long he keeps working on it.
