So, where the hell have I been?
I suppose what happened was fairly common with long restorations - I got bored!
I'd encountered a few problems with the latter stages of the restoration which had disheartened me so I decided to take a break for a bit. I didn't plan on it being nearly five years!
So, what have I been up to in the meantime?
Well, first of all I bought one of these:
Then I got into trackdays :
Which unfortunately resulted in this:
Which I then rebuilt into this :
And the crash hasn't stopped me from doing trackdays either!
Despite all this I never totally forgot about the Escort, I just always had something else to do!
Recently, however, I have started to think about it some more, and about how cool it will be to be driving it on the street! That, and the fact that I have been nagged incessantly by friends, my fianceť and my work colleague!
I am determined to finish the car now, hopefully by the end of the year. However I am not going to set myself any deadlines, the car will be done when it is done!
