  1. Hey everyone, Better jump on the van wagon band and post a build thread about my mk2 van. Purchased from Alexandra, taken off the road to tidy it up and fix the rust. That was a couple of years ago, so ill play catch up with my posts to get it to the current state. Pretty standard apart from the 1600 and us800 mags. Mags and massive exhaust tip were the first to go This is how it sat before being taken of the road Plan is keep the 1600, panel up the windows and a few other bits
  2. Here she is, my 1987 Ford Falcon XF GL. 250 Crossflow engine. She's an EFI model but running a 350 Holley on a redline intake manifold. 3 speed Borg Warner box that goes alright for now. Mods already done: -Factory wheels swapped with some 12 slotters running 225s up the front and 245s out the back. -Bull bar removed, nicely might I add, so all mounts are intact if I want to sell or put em back on. -Mounted an AFR gauge that I had lying round under the steering wheel. Here's mods list for short term: - New lowering springs front and rear, not super lows
  3. Hi there I have a 105e, I got her for $500 on my 16th birthday ('91) She is original, 997cc of goodness. She was taken off the road in 02 and will be sitting her WOF in the next few weeks. (Reg is on hold). My plans are a respray, new carpets, some period bucket seats a different carb (prob a weber 2 barrel) and some extractors and I have an exhaust system with 2 cherry bombs waiting to go in when I get the extractors (springtime due to $$) Cheers Felixx
  4. Hey Team. Been AWOL quite a long time. Had some serious hickups in life that slowed me down and forced me to let go of my last project. a mk3 Ford Cortina. And frankly, I went through a pretty nasty period of depression. But you can't keep a good guy down. And you won't stop a grease monkey eventually getting covered in grease. Around a month ago, My Daily Driver 2000 Ford Mondeo slipped a tooth on the timing belt on the exhaust cam, and did some bendy valve stuff. A friend had this sitting in his hay shed taking up space. And Rather than try and rebuild the Mondeo mo
  5. Build Thread Anyone have anything they want to ask/ comment about the car feel free. Cool.
  6. Been awhile since I've put more than a "like" up on oldschool.co.nz, mainly because its been awhile since I've had an "oldschool" car. So here's an Intro into the project for those that might not know me directly or follow me on Instagram....... A few things happened since the last project car, I got a few more motorbikes, had a few daily duty vehicles come and go, got married, got a dog, got a trailer..... and got a house. Which has been a real time and money drain hole. However it did come with a sweet garage. A pretty descent depth two car garage, WITH a work
  7. Project thread: http://oldschool.co....rd-anglia-105e/ Hey Mac, that's a nice looking Anglia you've got there. Certainly an interesting choice for a 16 year old. What are your plans for it? Your thread is in the wrong section of the website at the moment, but I'm sure a moderator will move it to the User's Projects / Build Ups section soon. EDIT - Moved
  8. Hi All, Have been a member of the forums for a while but haven't contributed a lot. Went along to the monthly meet in Ellerslie last week for the first time and met the Escort brigade in the pub. Someone suggested I should post to introduce myself and my car so here goes. I bought a 1064 Mk1 Cortina GT in 2011 which looked like this at the time. Turned out the engine needed a bit of work so I decided to go for a YB engine. It has taken a lot longer than I had hoped but the car is now not far from being complete. Fingers crossed it may be on the road by

  10. After selling my Mk1 2 door, I brought a 1995 WRX Sti type Ra because who doesn't lust after rally spec cars. Hell of blast, but I want to keep the km's down as I see it appreciating in the future. I needed something that milage or a few shopping market dents wouldn't worry me too much. Found this on fb down in the south island.
  11. Been following this forum for a while and been meaning to start a build thread so here go's. I have had it close to a year all ready and have not been keeping to good a photo history unfortunately. A year or so ago I started a new job that came with a company vehicle which allowed me to sell my late model Navara freeing up some cash. About the same time we bought a lifestyle property outside of Hamilton that came with a converted pig shed at 130 square meters. So I thought I should get my self some sort of toy. I started looking for something american but decided that seems though
  12. So as a few of you probably know. Beth had a little car crash and no longer has a golf. We said we would buy myself a cheap run around and she can have the Subaru and put the rest of the money else where. So I brought a ea coon. I brought it cause previously I had one I brought for the globes and I then sold it. Kept the globes though. I rang a couple of places to get lowering springs... Scratch that Ill get them Compressed at spring town in Frankton. Time to lower the the bad boy again. Had t
  13. Hey I’m new to oldschool but want to share the entire build of my 1980 mk2 ford escort estate and thought this would be the best place to do so. We picked her up a couple of years ago so that I could have a project throughout my high school years.
  14. OK team, it all starts this weekend and I thought I would kick off my first build thread post. I got my first car when I was 16. A poo brown 1979 Mk2 1300 4 door. This was alright for a while but it wasn't long before I managed to find a red 1980 Mk2 1600 Sport. This was purchased for $1000 and had a wof and everything. I put in my race motor and raced round the streets of Wellington. I think it was the loudest car around. Unfortunately rust was ripe in the Sport and I figured, being an apprentice mechanic, I would strip it down, fix the rust and rebuild. Well stripping it down I found i
  15. So we have my lil 76 Escort here. which has been a looooong build in progres. About 5 years in the making. over the next couple of days I will be making a full build thread but this is the first post.. so enjoy
  16. Went to start up my Mk2 Panelvan, left it too long... engine has siezed. Any tips to unseize it (preferably without taking the engine out of the car)?
  17. Hi all, Wondering what fellow 1600 ford crossflow motor owners are seeing temperature wise at operating temp. Drove mine at the weekend and it was sitting around the 90 degree mark- didn't exceed this. I've heard they tend to run a bit hotter than normal... Any help appreciated, Cheers
