Not bad for your first attempt using my camera.

This is a model of the MK1 Ford Escort I use to own 26 years ago, my car was this red, with the 4 Spots on the front. The engine was 1.3L with twin carb, stainless steel pancake air filter. Uprated gearbox fitted with a racing spring loaded shift. Wide alloys wheels, uprated brakes, rear axle from a MK3 cortina. The interior had bucket seats, a dashboard full of dials, rollcage and tinted glass. This car was very quick especially on country lanes as it had superb grip and handling and would easily leave my mate's RS Turbo behind. Shame I have not got the car now as a car similar to the specification for sale on ebay for 18,000

With more patience, practice and learning, I hope one day I will be able to take beautiful photos like this.

Great shot, and nice model. When I was a youngster in Jamaica my brother-in-law had a 1600cc Twin Cam Lotus Escort - white wih a black hood. 3/4 race cams, twin Webber 40s, limited slip diff. That car was a rocket ship!! Thanks for the memories

I failed my first driving test in an 1100 Escort mk1...
