    Gutted I missed out on one yesterday for 3500 EU.
    Was excellent condition.
    Is the price of them dropping in general ?

    The only truly classic Escort. Beautiful lines.

    The Mk2 was plain, looked like an Avenger. Who thought it was an improvement, ffs! Same for the Mk1 and Mk11 Cortina. They made it worse, not better.

    The Mk111 Escort and its descendants were quite good looking but shocking build quality. Adored by morons. I had three...

    After that, let’s not go there. Thank god for the Mk1 Focus. Beautiful motor.

    I hope you get your Mk1, mate. Get some pics on here if you do.

    Make sure you take someone along who knows what they are looking at. When I bought a motor out there the amount of cut and shuts we found was unreal. Luckily I had one of my Maltese pals with me.

    This looked pretty original and about 10k too cheap . I couldn't get there soon enough last night as was waiting for my friend who owns loads of classic cars

    First new car and first house. The house cost £4400 and the car somewhere around £600/£700, can't quite remember.

    Bet it was in Malta, the land of millionaires, and miles better than mark one escorts in Britain

    I nearly bought an orange mk1 2.0l pinto back in 1997 for 800 notes. Didn’t have the cash at the time.

    My dad had a mk2 1.6 Kent cross flow which we lifted the engine out, match ported the head, re-bored to 1.7l with 1.3l pistons to increase the compression, put a fast road cam in and some twin forties.

    Now my car has a big lump of plastic under the bonnet and I wouldn’t know where to start doing anything to it.
