Spotted the other day. Wouldn't mind one myself.
Surely not a normal ride height?

Looks fine to me. ๐Ÿ‘

Nice, do like a 944 (had an S2 cab back in the day). I'd say it looks a wee bit low but Lee would know better than me.

Honestly wasn't sure. I was clenching when he went over the speed bump just to the left. Keep looking at them on Auto Trader and come very close to picking up the phone.

This ones a turbo. Been running about Erskine/Bishopton for at least 10 years. Definitely think it’s lowered

Think that is Kevin McShea’s x

My father in law has a lovely one he would like to sell ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The INEOS Grenadier has arrived and it's...quite like a Land Rover Defender.

This is no surprise given the brief for the team was to create a replacement for the original defender, but there's also quite a bit of Mercedes G Wagon on show.

With BMW 3.0l diesel and petrol engines being mated to a ZF gearbox and a starting price of around ยฃ40,000, would this get your money over the new LR Defender?

Prefer that to the new Range rover Defender .

I like it. Utilitarian awesomeness

It's what the new Defender should have been - I like it.

Ryan McTavish

Love it, it's the new Defender we all wanted!

Rhys McAllister

Looks like a Grand Theft Auto version of a defender. ๐Ÿคฎ ๐Ÿคฎ

Very Defender/G Wagon looking... Still not a fan of the new Defender styling - IMO the hard top/commerical versions are the best looking.

The 3.0l BMW is like a tractor engine so it probably is good and reliable

Andy Mack

Karen Mahony perhaps best show Simon albeit with a bmw engine......

Just bought the new Defender

Much prefer the defender.

i would prefer the new defender over this.

Pre makeover pic

Obligatory Lexus banner...45 litres of white paint on the walls...try explaining to the wife why the garage painting is more important than the living room!!!!!

๐Ÿคซ Fast forward to 16 minutes.....$40million house with 14 car garage.... FOURTEEN!!!!!!!!!!!

Kenny, David remember when you got roped into giving my garage a makeover when I was on holiday? I’m guessing your advice would be pay someone else to do it ๐Ÿ˜‚

Did you photoshop that? No one has a garage that empty!

The mirror of memories!!

Building a new one!

I’m in the middle of painting my floor one half at a time ๐Ÿ˜‚

My update to the garage ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜‚

Porsche festival at Dinslaken, Germany we attend every year ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป


Amongst other things, the poster Colin McRae signed for me when I randomly met him at work in 2001. I'd just been to a motor show and had this poster in the boot of my Mk2 Escort. A very nice chap and made time for a chat with me ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ

Guys. Come on Saturday and bring your beautiful car babies to show them off. I’m sick of the gloom from the last 3 months so let’s smile xx

Bit of a bomb site. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Ok so Iโ€™m late to the party here, just finished watching Le Mans โ€˜66 all about the Ford v Ferrari battle and really enjoyed it. Iโ€™m a big fan of both brands having a Ford and Ferrari in the garage, but this is all about Ford v Ferrari so out of the two here which one would you pick? ... See MoreSee Less

I was a teen dreaming of that Cossie, and always had posters of the other Italian marque on the wall, so easy for me.

Cossie 1. You won't feel as much of a cock 2. Now much cooler 3. Can drive it on the limit and not shit yourself..

That escort ๐Ÿ˜

Easy, same as my choice in the film. The Porsche!

Epic film, love the cossie but that Ferrari ๐Ÿ˜

John Steele the escort cosworth was a dream car of mine growing up especially in that colour but the love & passion always lies with โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นโค๏ธ

I’ve made my bed and happy to lie in it on that topic ๐Ÿ˜

I know it’s a long shot but if the cossie is ever to look for a new home can I be first in line ??

I am a big Ford and ferrari fan. However cossie > ferrari

Ferrari for me, especially the noise from this one.

I love both manufacturers but I grew up in the 90’s, so it has to be the Ford ๐Ÿ˜

Was that the film with Matt Damon and Christian Bale? I watched it last night. Awful film but I really, really enjoyed it. And, despite Ford's underhand tactics. I'd have the Cossie.

D'u really have to ask?

Pfft that's nothing.... You can guess what got more attention... the McLaren driver went away in a bit of a rush ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค”

Gotta be an imp blue cozzy for me. Although I’d love anyone of them if I seen both parked up I’d b-line straight for the escort. It’s iconic styling and body lines are hard to beat in my opinion

๐Ÿค” can’t make my mind up , want both ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Cossie all day long!!!! Good fast usable classic! That’s only going up in value and will turn more heads of petrol heads than the Italian imo

Cossie for me

Standard cossies are pretty boring imo, Would need to be well modified but I do like a Ferrari (can I have an F12??)

Ferrari no question ๐Ÿ‘

I’ll have the Fizz thanks ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Love them both but a manual 430 would be about perfect for me.

Cossie all day for me

Fords are shit.

I’ll never forget the day you met me at EK in the Cossie just after you got it and we drove up to Strathaven. Happy days
