I hate to think what the rear axle loading is on that and I think I'd leave the steering lock on.

MOT until July next year though.

I like it... Lots of (suspension) tuning bits available for Sierras, so handling not really a problem.

Uprate the engine and it'll make a good long distance vehicle..

or one like this if you need a bit of stability.
seen quite few in france years ago.
Looks like the 'Clip-a-car' (I think that's what it was called) has been given new life - I think they're the ones you will have seen in France in the early '90s.

Oddly enough I saw a Sierra yesterday. First one I've seen in years.
From 1980 - 1988 I was a salesman in a Main Ford Dealer. The Sierra "concept car" was revealed at a motor show in SECC roughly a year before becoming available to the public. I commented to my sales manager that it looked hellish and would struggle to replace the MKv Cortina. His reply "you better get used to it , it will be your bread and butter for a long time". The concept car had infilled wheel arches like the old cars seen in gangster movies , so a few things changed before mass production thankfully.
Older Mondeos are few and far between too.
Hope 't pup and the good lady are well.

My other half Max has a Sierra XR4i in the garage that he’s restoring
Ooh! One of my favourite cars. Had a black one, black leather, cossy wheels, cossy Ltd slip diff. Owned previously by a guy who raced Cosworths so he had breathed on this one, quite a bit as it turned out.
Brilliant in the dry. Very scary in the wet when playing.
Please send me pics when finished,(unless it's in white).:eek:
