I MODDED MINE

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Living With Classics - JIM ROB­SON

Jim has owned his 1992 Sierra Sap­phire 2.0 Ghia for five years.

‘It started out as stan­dard, and was converted into a track car then a drift car be­fore be­ing re­turned back to stan­dard. How­ever, while the en­gine and gear­box are orig­i­nal spec, it’s been low­ered with Koni sus­pen­sion through­out and fea­tures a full Cos­worth body kit and Es­cort Cos­worth wheels; but these items are get­ting rare and ex­pen­sive now. I’ve also re­sprayed the car and fit­ted a four-inch ex­haust, al­though this isn’t as noisy as you might ex­pect; it’s more ef­fi­cient than stan­dard and al­most as quiet. I’ve also fit­ted Poly­bushes through­out and while these make the car much harsher, they im­prove the han­dling enor­mously.’
