    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 :)

    Love it on the Borbets.Seeing a nice Ford always makes me want to get my RS Turbo back out of the garage. Not long to go now before that happens as the house move is almost sorted
