Our new addition!
« on: May 02, 2012, 14:21:19 PM »
We've gone and added to the fleet, so that's 6..... getting out of hand now!!

Some slightly dodgy pictures, gives you all the idea though;











Could do with a bit of a clean and the paint is a bit buggered (laquer gone!), but I've seen worse! Slight bit of rust round the sunroof to sort, but nowt major ;D

Seems strange you getting a 24v, you was always a 12v fan.

Ford should have fitted them 91 on as they look so at home in a Sierra bay.

Looks O.K that. Smart!

I'm still 12v through and through.... cut me open and I say 12v all the way through, just like a stick of rock!!

The only reason I bought it is because I've been assured they are super reliable and Em needs a car that I don't have to fettle every 5 minutes :laugh:

I've been looking at Audi RS4s and RS6s, but as usual I ended up back at a Sierra!!

It's just an everyday car, so it'll just get looked after as it is for now...... having said that it's already booked in to have some new arch bottoms and sill ends welded in!!

That's major work for me Dave, you know what my cars look like! lol

I can see it being an expensive year this year, the mk1 is in being sprayed, this car needs the above bits, the black car is having two new wings, two new arches, a new front valance and a full respray..... ouch, my wallet won't be pleased!!

Tell you what, I'll nip them down to you and you can weld them for me :laugh:  I really must learn to weld cars, if I can do gold you'd have thought steel should be no issue!!

Just seems wrong to have all those valves boucing about!

To be fair I really enjoyed it, majorly surprised at how powerful it was. You know me, give me a warehouse and I won't sell any :angel:
