Fast Ford - - Contents -

Well, I’m sad to say that the sum­mer show sea­son is over for an­other year. The nights are draw­ing in, the weather is chang­ing, and with­out wish­ing to sound like a Game of Thrones char­ac­ter: “Win­ter is com­ing!”

But why should that stop us en­joy­ing our fast Fords? It shouldn’t!

If your fast Ford is safely tucked away for its win­ter hi­ber­na­tion, or even if you still drive your car ev­ery day, with­out the busy sum­mer sched­ule of shows and events tak­ing up your week­ends you will fi­nally have some free time to make a start on your next round of up­grades and sort out those nig­gly lit­tle is­sues that have been both­er­ing you all sum­mer long.

But with money be­ing tight at this time of year ( no­body wants to ad­mit it, but we’ve all got one eye on Christ­mas!) find­ing the cash to start a new big-power en­gine build or be­spoke track car con­ver­sion is go­ing to be dif­fi­cult. But find­ing a few quid here and there to sort out a few is­sues or make some sim­ple im­prove­ments is well within reach, and bud­get.

To give you some in­spi­ra­tion this month we’ve com­plied a huge list of 99 mod­i­fi­ca­tions that cost less than £99. They won’t all suit ev­ery car, but a care­ful se­lec­tion of the right ones can make a big dif­fer­ence. We even show you how to do four of them with our step-by-step guides! Also, help­ing you save the pen­nies, we show how you can rob parts from other Ford mod­els to im­prove yours. En­gines, brakes, in­te­ri­ors etc can all be re­pur­posed to up­grade your own car! And to top it off, we’ve got a list of 25 ways that you could save money on your car in­sur­ance!

Else­where, we’ve got fan­tas­tic fea­ture cars, in­clud­ing Dan Terry’s stun­ning S1 RS Turbo from the cover, we’ve been to the Bris­tol RSOC BBQ meet, and thrashed around in a 300bhp Fi­esta ST too!

Who said win­ter has to be bor­ing? Not me!

En­joy the mag!
