| Description

The car modelled called at Parkway Garage, Gittings Brothers Motors, Ledbury, for petrol in 1976. Proprietor Richard Ernest Gittings was looking for an RS2000 and noticed the number plate, REG 101M, was his initials so bought the two year old 18,000 mile car. He used it regularly until 1997 recording over 100,000 miles and maintained it scrupulously; coating the underside with oil and garaging it. In 2005 Gloucester-based enthusiast Steven Gerrard bought it for restoration, stripped it and started rebuilding the unmolested but rusty bodyshell. In 2009 he sold it, still dismantled, to friend Scott Newman who continued the restoration using Escort specialists Alimax Motorsport, South Wales, to finish the body and paint it.

Escort MK 1 - Yet another

The Escort MK I is a great model, there is no getting away from that, the modena green is slightly off from the actual Green, but that can be forgiven as the over all look and feel of it is good.

It would be nice however if we could have a differnt car, from the same models year after year, this being number 22 in the fleet of MK I Escorts - the case is the same for all moden Vanguards, with a plastic base and a perspex dome with a card surround - The chrome effect four spoke wheels unfortunately look a little cheaply made on the model, but this is counteracted by the added spot-lamps on the front of the car - overall 8 out of 10 - but please can wee have an all new model next year - pretty please ?...
