Definitely sounds like too much work, sell it (to me) I pay in multi-coloured Canadian dollars and will include the first, second and third born (all adults, all gainfully employed and all house trained) :D

As for the photos, it is a pain in the ass to fiddle around to get them to load but when they are up they look nice on the site assuming they stay 'up'

Mine seem to have disappeared...viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1838
if you could find me a few nice zodiac/zephyrs , maybe a couple A40 pickups or Bedford ca vans we might be able come to terms I,ve always trouble walking away from any of those .
:D There is a Bedford (Cara)van on BaT at the mo, can't help with the Zephyrs etc though there are a couple in my area;

I should throw up my badly written "Tale of two Cortinas" on this site but it is long and boring (does include two Mk1 Lotus Cortinas though :D )

I remember we were talking about a Fiat powered Cortina that you bought from Fred I think, do I remember correctly? Anyway I was looking through my hard drive and found a few pictures of Fred's white Cortina at the 2006 ABFM.

Just the intake, I passed on the SHO install due to the weight and a couple of other issues, as well as the Zetec, the Miata, The Pinto, The KA24DE and a couple of others and stuffed an S2000 drivetrain in, photos are (or were) on this site somewhere, search for FROD Cortina :D

Cortinas rule!

Didn't put the SHO motor in, 220hp wasn't enough, so I went for 240hp! (S2000)
