Abandoned Car -Cortina GXL Final thoughts
Abandoned Mk3 Cortina GXL in the woods. You may have seen my previous films of this Mk3 Ford Cortina. Here I revisit and offer my final thoughts on the state of play.





Mk3 Cortina 'Maizey' first inspection
First official inspection of this 'rescued form a field' Mk3 2 Door GXL Auto 2.0 ford cortina. I have repaired the brakes and fuel lines allowing me to drive the car. Car has been stationary and in the field since 1983. Its quite incredible it fired up and drive. Bodywork was not bad considering the situation. Could have been much much worse. 32 years of weather has been attacking this car and it still starts. All hail the ford pinto. Bulletproof.
