You want to be looking at the mk4 Orion not the mk5 in the pics not as rounded looking. I started off with mk4 escorts when you could buy them for a couple hundred pound, reading someone’s comment about burtons power brought back memories of wanting almost everything in there catalog

I had a Clio Mk1 16v as my first road car, it was the 'fastest' car I could insure at 17. It even helped me to insure my E36 328i thanks to a loop hole in my insurance policy.;)

I didn't have gold wheels but it had all the Williams bits including interior.

Mine was a red Talbot Samba Sport, It was in fair condition once I had welded it up a bit. Last I heard there was only 1 left on the UK roads. I put dual carbs on it, replaced the clutch, camshaft and tyres. It wasn't super fast but it was light and handled quite well.

Thanks for sharing, haven't seen one of those for a while.

I had a rover metro! Not even a 1litre but did fit a straight through exhaust! Sadly no pics as the best thing my phone had on it back then was snake 🤣

My first car was an awful 1981 Datsun Stanza. Rust was a constant and it handled like a dog. The same as this without the cool 14" jellybeans.
