I literally always wanted an Escort Cosworth though and nearly pulled the trigger a few times but never did!

Im Simon Fox
And believe it or not, I own a hair extensions company. I live in Newcastle and have always loved my cars!
Im 40 now so my first dream car at 14 (1993) was an Escort Cosworth... I actually lived through all the Max Power days and went to many a show all over the country! I passed my test in 1997 and bought a Nova 1.3SR I did loads to GTE lookalike 16" wheels and always big audio back then, Next to an Astra GSI 17" alloys Irmscher kit and more audio, A Renault 19 16V on its arse, 17" alloys and huge audio (I was on the Big Breakfast sound off with doing 151.9db) then a Pulsar GTiR before getting into the Motor Trade and having company cars!
I literally always wanted an Escort Cosworth though and nearly pulled the trigger a few times but never did! After having my own business I've had Range Rovers, a GTR and a 600bhp F80 M3 I recently rolled on the M6 in a storm however it was only about 3 years ago
I actually finally bought my Cossy a 1993 K plate Big Turbo LUX, low ish miles 74k with a proper history, low owners win-win and in the very rare Polaris Grey! It's pretty standard looking,
- big brakes,
- carbon fibre splitter and hockey sticks,
- nomad rear lights,
- morette headlights,
- RS500 fog light grills,
- a rare Wolf Spoiler
- 17" Rondels (Engels actually they're tougher).
I had a bit of a nightmare to start as a "Very Reputable" specialist down should completely ballsed up the electrics and put an iffy MOT on it and it was shocking the state it came back in!! So I literally went back to basics and started again! Since I've had it I've literally been into everything, Well the boys at Galltec in Cramlington have, Jordan and Jeff are amazing and very reasonably priced and pure experts! They are the only people I'd ever let touch it or any other car I have for that matter!!
In the past 2 years it's gone from a very old set-up to now it's running a full link ECU (No cold start issues) I've updated everything...
- engine mounts,
- gearbox mounts,
- diff mount,
- fuel pump,
literally, everything is new (gearbox and diff have been rebuilt) even down to the underside where I've even reinstated the weak jacking points with new stronger plates. I have redone the brakes, the carbon fibre parts are all-new or refreshed and I just love it!
Nothing gets a head-turning like an Escort Cosworth on the road in the sun! It's now running a good reliable 350bhp but I never wanted to go daft with it just reliable ...... as I say I had the M3 for daft until the crash but hey ho! you live n learn! Clubs wise I'm just in the RSOC and yes it will be at events once all this is sorted (Covid-19) so probs 2021 now I may not even tax it this year as I've still been working so not had time to use it through all this.
