Project E30: The New Daily!

So, after what seemed like the longest week ever, Friday rolled round;  I got myself a Polo and a Pilot and headed North to collect my new wheels.

Fuel.

Traffic.  Lots of traffic.

Escorts.

Industry (Yeah, OK, there was a lot of traffic and nothing to do but hang of the car with my camera and talk cars…)

The car is only two owners from new and both of then were in the RAF.  The car actually still lived just down the road from an RAF base.  It was weird seeing all the military buildings, training units and families houses…The surroundings were, erm, plush to say the least.

Actual aircraft in real life:

So we made it, check the car over, thew some money about and headed home (with fingers crossed that there was enough petrol in it to make it to the first station we could find).

So what is it then?

Yeah you guessed it: An E30! (I bought the car blind and just hoped that the fact, like the Roadster and the KP, it had “86” in the plate was a good sign..it was!).

I’ve wanted one for ages and the right one came up at the right time…more to follow.  A lot more.

    Saw the exact same escort, but alas not from a polo; from the good old London midland train service on friday afternoon.

    From that front on pic the car looks in good nick! Any other shots? Nice buy fella.

    Judging by that front lip i’d put money on it being a 318IS.

    Very excited to see how this turns out. Your KP build is one my favourites so I cant wait to see what you do with the IS.
    I’m looking at doing a coil on plug and ITB conversion on mine over the winter, so if you need any help with either just let me know.
