If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

A thing never seen, and some may say thankfully so

Yesterday I saw a Mk2 Escort at a show.

This one. An immaculate build, isn’t it? Not sure about the clearance for the air filters or the back of the engine though.


Note the clear front cover so you can admire the cam belt and pulleys.

Pulleys? What’s this? The only Escorts to have DOHC engines had BDAs. This isn’t a BDA. Let’s take a closer look.


Opel? What blasphemy is this? A GM engine sitting proudly in a Ford car?
