Each to their own. It would be a sad world if we all liked the same thing wouldn't it.

Atleast you got a good price for it as you say, lots of people sell cars at a loss once they've lost interest as they just want shot of it.

Bige har owned a couple of very nice lowmilage cossies..
as far as I'm concerned you will come across assholes everywhere, so what..
If parts are TOO expansive they don't sell, so cant see a problem there, If I can get 1000punds for my RS500 splitter, GREAT
Good luck to Bige and hope he has better luck with the hillbillys and rednecks

it is a very sad case that you have had to sell the escort cosworth due to jealousy and risk of theft due it being quite rare over there.

I hope you enjoy the mustang a bit more

If "old" is the problem, why going for an even older car with tecnology from the iceage?

Goa is right, surely getting parts for your Mustang is going to be harder? I would be surprised if it is cheaper to own than a cossie, and that the jealousy stops.

Either way - all the best chap. Shame the Escos did not work out for you.

Norway is'nt that bad for car theft anymore, there was some gangs in Oslo area earlier that stole a lot of cossies.. I think they have gotten to old now, both the gang and the cars LOL..
In my area of norway the problem has never been very big, knock on wood..
Bud we do got crime here as well, here is a informative video about norwegian prisons;

Cossie parts are virtually non-existence where I live although there are about 7 or Escort Cossies around (and a few Sapphire Cossies). I just buy parts on eBay, usually from UK sellers. Expensive? Definitely. It's part of owning rare cars
