Though I'd post a few pics of my little fleet.

My current motor a 1.8 Orion Zetec, just had an engine change and has been upgraded with the 130ps bits hopefully gonna get it on the rollers soon just to see if it gets anywhere near it

Cheers Taps, the escort was a good bargain, the guy had done most of work and even let us see it running   It still needs quite a lot of work though, the wings and slam panel are preety rusty and it needs lots of wiring tidying in the engine bay. Drive train will need sorting to as its only on a standard back axle  

The sierras now unfortunaly turned into the spares car for this, it would not have been an easy repair as the floor pans bent on the drivers side, and the only straight panels left are the roof, boot and one rear door.

The guy driving it meet someone in a rover overtaking on the wrong side of the road coming out a dip, the MOT man chucked it on the grass but the dick in the rover locked up and hit him on the grass on the wrong side   which spun it round where it landed in the hedge which bent the wing, front door and strut on the other side  
So to say I was not best please after spending many hours and quite a bit of money getting it through was an understatment.
Anyway its now donnating its parts to a good cause
