hey say travel broadens the mind, well this issue we’ve taken the hassle of airport delays and horrendous credit card bills out of the equation, and done all the hard work for you — bringing the world to you door, well the pages of this magazine anyway.
Classic Ford has always acknowledged that the old Ford scene extends far beyond the British Isles, and is just as active in many, many other countries, and while we feature Fords from outside the UK very frequently, ever so often it’s great fun to put together an issue dedicated to our worldwide movement.
This one, however, is by far the most reaching with, for the first time, content from Cuba amongst others, and one thing that is good to see is that wherever you happen to live, you like your Fords varied. What’s even more apparent though, is how where a classic Ford is built influences the end result, like Sweden for example (monster-spec Cosworth YB, radiator in the boot), the USA (monster-spec V8, travel trunk in the boot), the UK (monster-spec spaceframe, bike engine in the boot)... you get the picture!
To miss-quote The Kinks, it’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up classic Ford world, but we like it.
