    It’s been said before Jim, and I expect it will be said again. It’s a cross some of us have to bare!!!!

    Wonder whos car it will be featured o na 107E usually its any other Ford featured in classic car magazines i think Jims Maroon 107E article was the first in years .I do feel it is about time the 107E got more in the spotlight so will look out for the magazine when its out.

    Andrew,

    Easy answer to that is, if you have one, flaunt it. There’s no better publicity than driving one.

    Jim flaunts his all the time. Vulcan grey isn’t it?????

    Well, now that the October mag has dropped through the door, I’ll post up a few more photos!







    Some of my earlier 107Es:


    The all-maroon one, 984 FLV, I still have, but BOA was sold when I bought BLC.

    Hi Jim,
    What’s the likely cause of the damage to the piston pictured in the mag?

    jan,
    Was it the camera or the operator that was a bit out of focus – too many whiskies in the van?

    I’d say pre-ignition, but I don’t know the cause.

    We had a run up to the Lake District today; this was at Esthwaite Water. Tomorrow it will be Skipton, and next Wednesday Bridgnorth, and a copuple of weekends after that, Kidderminster, and a run down to the book village that is Hay-on-Wye. Must also nip down to see my sister in Htchin at some point, and my cousin in Warwick. Good job Wigan is fairly central!

    Shame I didn’t know! Anyway, Dick Knight has posted this on 105speed.com , and I hope to be there. Would that suit you?

    Indeed, good to see the 107E, and yourself, in person. :)

    A pretty busy weekend: Saturday saw us in Kidderminster for a meeting of the Stanier Mogul Fund Committee, then Sunday saw Day 2 of the 105speed.com Lakes Tour. This started in Appleby, but I assume that Dick, the organiser, had the map upside down. The Lake District is to the west of Appleby, but finnished up at Middleton-in-Teesdale, having come very close to Bishop Aukland en-route. The photos were taken in the mists of yesterday morning; and in Middleton, where the sun came out!

    As usual, it was a great day in excellent company. The roads were pleasant but less challenging than in previous years, allow a more relaxed meander around what we were assured was beautiful scenery, if only we could see it!

    Over the two days, the car did about 500 miles.
