Mondeos are magic
I read with dismay in CCW about the stress caused by Fords, Minis and Land Rovers being stolen. You can add showmen’s waggons to that list.
Yes, even these century-old homes on wheels are being targeted. How do I know? Because the one belonging to my mother was stolen.
She used to deliver meals on wheels to the old chap who lived in it. Then, after he died, she bought it and restored it over many years. Then it was stolen overnight, towed through a fence across a field, loaded onto a trailer and disappeared.
I’ve made a short video to show the extent these gangs go to: https:// youtu.be/aFLrWZBkR8M
Should any of your readers have seen this waggon, we would be grateful if they could call Crimewatch. Dave Rix, Twitter@findmywaggon Your Letters, The Editor, CCW, I felt it was time to sing the praises of the Ford Mondeo MkI and MkII as so few people seem able to do so. I have been a car enthusiast for a long time but now I’m losing the will to continue. It seems to me the classic car world is changing and retro Ford cars stand little chance of surviving unless they’re a V6.
I’ve owned a Ford Mondeo Ghia X 2.0 for a few years now. The drive is incredibly smooth with great handling. One hundred motoring years in one photo. Media House, Lynch Wood, Peterborough, Cambs PE2 6EA. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org
