Mon­deos are magic

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Your Letters -

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 edi­to­rial@clas­s­ic­car­weekly.co.uk
