Posted on

Up on the top floor of MotorMartin Towers, there’s often a heated debate regarding Ford’s recent output and whether or not there’s a comparable car on offer that can give you that late eighties excitement gained from a fuel injected XR designated Escort or Fiesta whilst maintaining the massive advances in safety, style and efficiency […]
