Mk5 Ford Escort XR3i soft top.
Shots of the car in 2009, and a brief (poor man's) Top Gear style presentation, just to give a bit of history. The Ford Escort car range was in production from 1968 to 2003 in the UK, and six versions covered that period. This car is a 1992 Mk5 105ps XR3i, and is the topless version with a manual hood. Engine is a 1.8 litre Zetec. It is original apart from the 16 inch Mondeo alloy wheels. Knightrider lights were fitted for filming. Filmed at Hainault, whilst the sun was setting. Music is from www.akmmusic.co.uk and is track seven from 'Cool Grooves'. www.calvertfilm.fsnet.co.uk

Lightning v Chaos 2 (NOISY)
Most of the noise is coming from Lightning which is dragging it's front end around, as per usual, to keep it low. This was a live event at Manningtree Car Show in 2004. MCPS 5965 BPI 6271 PPL 6271 www.calvertfilm.fsnet.co.uk also www.roamingrobots.co.uk also www.ukrobotwars.com
