Wel­come to the JULY IS­SUE!

Fast Ford - - News -

It has long been ob­vi­ous that there are two dis­tinct camps in the Fast Ford world – old school, and new school. Some people are staunch fol­low­ers of the more retro ride, whereas oth­ers favour mod­ern day per­for­mance and re­li­a­bil­ity. In many ways the lines are be­com­ing ever more blurred with people fus­ing old school looks, with new school tech­nol­ogy. People like David Fox and his mas­sively cool Se­ries 1. Granted, people have been Zetec-ing for quite some time, but there has al­ways been a level of re­sis­tance – with cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als cry­ing foul, claim­ing that swap­ping away from the orig­i­nal power source is a crime, and that the re­sul­tant hy­brid is now “ru­ined”. But, in­creas­ingly, the com­bi­na­tion of old school style with new school dy­nam­ics has be­come the ac­cepted way of do­ing things, and when it’s as damn near per­fect as David’s S1 you’d be hard pressed to ar­gue other­wise. We al­ways try to walk the fine line be­tween get­ting both old and new cars in the mag, but cars like David’s do that job for us – go and check it out on page ten. The rest of the mag has plenty to of­fer, from a Cossie race car built up from the last ‘new’ 3- door shell avail­able, to a su­per cool (and very pos­si­bly the fu­ture of the

Fast Ford scene) Mk3 Fo­cus ST. So dive in, check out the cars, and en­joy your read…
