    Yes comp th's. 16 x 8's.
    Stripped interior out on this one, it's running a Rs1800i 130bhp zetec lump.

    The blue one's on 17 x 7.5 Borbet C's.
    Running in a 2 litre zetec turbo lump.
    I've always had orions and love the fact there so rare on the roads now.

    Like a nice Onion Good choice with the Saphire Cosworth spoiler on the bootlid. Puzzled why yuou didn't opt for the 2 litre Zetec over the RS1800 unit as teh RS1800 never actually makes the claimed figures.

    Do you use PassionFord.com ? Sure I recognise the red one from there

    Haha good old Orion's. I had a 1986 1.6 ghia and put a full cartel bodykit on with rs bonnet vents just like the blue one. I also put on a 4 inch peco exhaust, lowered it 60mm with 16inch 3 spoke alloys(all the rage then lol), full chrome petrol cap, sierra cosworth boot spoiler ,morrette quad headlights(which looked the dogs doodahs and re-sprayed it velvet purple. Then put lime green piping all the way around. Those were the days lol and I loved em.

    I like them, I brought a cammed 1.6 ghia off my uncle for peanuts that he had sitting around because of a blocked injector. Abit of pro-boost in the fuel and it soon cleared a mile or 2 down the road. it had a set of 15's on it and clear indictors. it was the blue and silver edition. tbh I stripped it and scrapped it as it was only a temp car till my series 1 came on road, but it gave me smiles
