So I am not alone?
I'm not really much of a blogger. But it turns out that there is a bloke in Alberta who is as crazy about old Cortinas I am. Sound. But are there really only 2 Cortina enthusiasts in a population of 30 million? Suppose that this is something to do with a climate that helps most Fords dissolve within 5 years in certain parts of the country and an attitude that means most people want newer and bigger things/cars etc all the time. Makes me stand out like a bit of a sore thumb. I would rather pay 50 quid for a car and keep it running as long as possible (for example, my Morris Minor), rather than shell for a new one every three years like everyone else. Oh well. Better try and get some restoration photos on here if i can a)find them and, b) work out how to upload them.
