@sttwoton Read an article about the guy that designed the styling of the escort cosworth, and he wanted another wing in the middle, ford/cosworth wanted no wing, settled for that iconic wing! We should have Escort ST :( Love that car

Yugo second, surely that's the wrong way round :p
It's a classic and bound for future greatness as a rare collectable. Time to get with the program.

EBC Brakes are excited to announce their next 鈥楶ads giveaway鈥

We are once again offering one set of free front or rear brake pads (Yellowstuff, Redstuff or Bluestuff) to a randomly selected forum user (UK or USA based) who posts a photo of their dream vehicle.
We all have that one vehicle that We dream of owning, or perhaps you already own it so why not share a photo with us for the chance to be the selected winner.

The lucky winner will be announced shortly after the closing date of 31st May 2021 and details will be posted on this forum.
Please be aware that this thread may appear in more than one section on the forum and one winner will be selected from the whole forum, not a winner per thread.

Pad choice will be based on availability and where a chosen pad is unavailable, an alternative will be offered.

If you are not the lucky winner, remember EBC Brakes are pleased to be able to offer a 10% discount off their braking products to all members of the forum community using code FORUM10USER

Hello All:
Thank you for doing this EBC. I run y'all's slotted discs and yellow stuff pads up front on my 2013 ST3 and they are very nice. I'm waiting for the stock rears to wear out so I can have the same setup in the rear. This is my "affordable" dream car:

There is a wheeler dealers, where they find an escort Cosworth in the US, then they do the usual repairs and speak to the designer, who told them about the third wing, so they make and fit the third wing.

So, So many cars to choose from; so little money: I'll show the two I could conceivably own.

The six, not the twelve. My buddy in high school had a neighbor with one and he was forever trying to tune it.

Although I'd take this v-12

Imagine touring the icefield parkway between Jasper and Banff with this beast.
OK, I lied. One more.

For the curious 1961 Jaguar E-Type, 1972 Lamborghini Espada Series 2, 1974 Alfa Romeo Montreal v8.
Don't get me wrong I love modern cars but these would satisfy my inner 8 year old like nothing else. But I'd have a garage full like Leno if I could.

You are the man, thank you for making me look like i know what I'm talking about, you gave me an idea, I will have to watch that!!
Did you also know, that the Escort RS Cosworth was the first production car to produce downforce over the front wheels, from the rear spoiler. Also, with the wale tail fitted, it鈥檚 top speed was reduced by five mph, because of drag.
