This deserves a retweet, as a reminder of how 'bangers' looked 35 years ago. In fact, I think my dad's Ford Cortina Mk2 was this one's doppelgänger. It also shows us just how far build quality improved after the 1970s – see a 30-year old car today and it's unlikely to be rusty!

ford mk2 Q&A Review

Where can I buy 50 white Ford Capri Mk2 models?

Craigslist is your friend. Also try online auction sites such as bringatrailer. These sites have some great cars to choose from. Google and you will find many other auction sites. However, they would have some 'trailer queen' cars which would have astronomical prices. Depends on what kind of a car you are looking for. Check out eBay too. eBay and Craigslist have some great project cars which just need some love and could be transformed into masterpieces. Hope this helps. :)

What are the most common electrical issues that would keep my Ford Focus ST MK2 from starting after a battery change?

Your alternator could be broke. I had a similar issue with my SUV in which it kept DYING AND WON'T HOLD A CHARGE no matter how many times I jumpstarted it even after I changed the battery. You may have the same problem. Hope that helps.

I have an MK2 Ford Focus ST. I have noticed that with aftermarket decat pipes, some have a bend, and some do not. Is there a performance reason for this?

Your description is pretty vague to follow, but I would think what you are talking about is a set of extractors with same length pipes to help the scavenging process at the collector point (where all 4 pipes meet up)

What would cause the battery light to come on and steering to go heavy on a Ford Ka MK2?

Going on the limited information you provided my first guess would be that you lost an accessory drive belt. The battery light actually has little to do with the battery. The battery light indicates that your charging system, i.e. your alternator, is not working. They use the image of a battery because using the image of an alternator is not easily recognized by most drivers. No belt = no turning of the alternator. When you say the steering went heavy I assume you mean it’s hard to turn the wheel. Which indicates that most likely your power steering pump is not working. Which is most likely driven with the same belt that turns the alternator. Not being familiar with your particular vehicle I can’t say for sure but it’s also possible that your water pump is not being driven either. Which can cause an overheating problem.

Is the Ford Cortina Mk4 the least fondly-remembered of all the Cortina models, and how does its popularity compare with the Escort Mk2?

For me, as somebody who hit the roads in 1976, yes the Mk4 Cortina is remembered as a very “ordinary” car. The Mk2 Escort - which I once owned a 1976 version of - was a car with a much better ‘image’ - largely I guess due to its success in rallying, though the Mk2 Escort hurtling sideways through Kielder Forest was a ,very ,different car to the one I owned! One car in that Telegraph ,article, stands out head-and-shoulders above anything else as the worst car I have ever had the misfortune to drive, though to be fair the specific car I drove once may have been a particularly poor example! I was a student at the time in the late 1970s and had a summer job at a local garage. The job entailed cleaning cars, moving them around, driving to the bakers’ to collect bacon sandwiches in the morning, going to collect the sales manager’s car from whichever pub car-park he’d left it in the night before, that sort of thing! One of the used-cars they had for sale was a horrible Simca 1100 - a van I think too - and in a disgusting pink colour. I confidently expected it not to be sold during the summer break when I was there. But one day some idiot actually bought it. The salesman offered to deliver it to the customer’s house, and kindly ‘volunteered’ me to drive it there. The seats were dreadful - like sitting on a tea crate, and the gear-change has to be the worst I have have ever encountered. Vague does not adequately describe it - this was like stirring porridge. If you occasionally ‘found’ a gear you were doing ok. If you found the ,right ,gear you were doing well! Nasty, nasty car!

Why was the Ford Escort changed from rear wheel drive to front wheel drive with the MK3 when the MK1 and MK2 were so successful?

Because throughout the 70s, front wheel drive was becoming fashionable, car manufacturers had realised that it held many advantages for road-going cars including a lighter drive train, less drive train losses and better traction in adverse weather conditions. Escort Mk II: Same colour as mine but minus the searchlight batteries, great fun The lighter drive train was afforded by the absence of the reasonably hefty prop shaft and definitely hefty differential axle; drive train losses, once again, courtesy of the absence of the prop shaft/diff axle arrangement and better traction because the engine was directly over the drive wheels. Escort Mk III: Not the same colour as mine - great fun but not really a great car The UK motor industry was actually late in catching on, with the first UK front-wheel drive car , the Vauxhall Chevette, not launching until 1976 while the German VW Golf Mk I and the French Renault 5 had already been in production for 3 - 4 years. But catch on it did, eventually, and Ford Escort Mk IIIs started shipping out of Köln and Dagenham in late 1980, suggesting a design and incubation period starting somewhere in the late 70s. Like most who’ve owned both, I preferred the Mk II, it was just all-round more fun. The Mk III had pretty sharp handling matched by its appetite for front tyres but the XR3i’s CVH engine was coarse, didn’t like being revved and was a bit gutless in mid-range.

What's wrong with my Ford focus mk2 1.6 petrol, its goes into safety mode, when driving and say acceleration limited, I have had it diagnosed but coming back with no faults, and some morning it turn on but won't turn over? Catalyst or components?

It sounds like you have a garage that relies on the reading of the computer. Let me explain. If there is a fault (there is) and its intermittent, and you book it in to the workshop. You KNOW it has a fault, but take it for diagnosis. The garage puts it on the computer to diagnose the fault, but because its running ok at that point the computer says no (!). This is because a computer only reports on what it finds, and if its running fine at that point theres nothing to report. The garage needs to inspect it to determine whats wrong at the point it is playing up, not when its running well. As it goes into safety mode the computer would usually log the fault in the computer in its memory so a garage with a diagnostic computer can check the fault list. Has your garage checked the memory or just done a straight diagnostic test? It sounds to me that you should try another garage. I would also explain the fault comes and goes and is intermittant so might not register on their computer when doing a normal diagnostic.
