The FB sharing does work. A number of karts gave been restored to their owners in the last couple of years.

I hope we can all play a part in finding it - we can't go out in our Deer Stalker hat and magnifying glass these days, but hopefully on line Sherlocks can get the work done.

Best wishes Iain, we'll find it.

So sorry to hear of the theft Iain.... trust with all the people tenthers collectively know can come up with a few more sightings and that the Escort finds its way back to you. I remember how you spoke of the car at PI so I know what it means.

Hopefully the lowlife that pinched it get caught and get their just deserts.
Best of luck.

*******s. I hope you get the car back - as someone who has suffered the same fate (with a Mk2) I feel your pain, when you've spent time building up a car from nothing it's a lot more personal. Gutted for you.

Thanks for all you support. Never say never.
You are very welcome Ian, the very least I could do I knew you'd be in the thick of it and that time is critical with these things to get the word out, has the sighting lead to any further progress?


best of luck

Yes, I shared it on FB and also re tweeted the above link. I sincerely hope they catch the perpetrators and return the vehicle. FWIW pre FB and Twitter I had a trailer stolen. The police found it and it was returned to my custody. I trust the same will apply to your Escort Iain.

Must be loads of cameras with images as well, though quality may not be great.

I've posted on some facebook groups I'm on plus tweeted and retweeted as much as I can plus it's on a couple of other retro car forums I frequent. Hopefully it'll be too hot to handle.

Iain, have you informed the cross channel ferry companies and border control, this comes from a friend who knows.

I wonder if ‘border control’ have access to the police stolen car data?

I’m sure you and Mart are already onto this, but definitely need to check out any Escort stuff coming up on eBay, and any other used parts sites......

I think I brought all this on myself . All the Motor Sport Day banners are up and around workshop . Also I went for a drive Wednesday afternoon . Turns out a classic Fiat 500 was stolen in the same way from Henley few weeks ago . All looking like organised classic car theifs . We all better be extra vigilant .

The idea comes from djinvicta on here (Dave Pollard), he has already shared a facebook link to P&O and DFDS, these are old customers of his so it should help in a small way.

You can't blame yourself, the car has probably been clocked for a while and the scumbags just wait for the right opportunity.
