Wel­come

Classic Ford - - NEWS - En­joy the mag.

T

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.
