I've only owned three times as many Granadas as Omegas. ;D


I never did get to own the Coupe I wanted. Still do, but it would need to be a nice one before I found a mk2 subframe and a BOA. So none of that is ever going to happen.

Twenty eight pages of a resto thread on one here.  :y

Plastic Welsh hatchbacks are awesome.
I would like to know what will happen this year, but I don't have 20 20 vision.

If you want a thread regarding Granada restore/modification .. then have a read here .. slightly old now, and goes on a bit (ok .. more than a bit... forever!) but the end result is amazing ...

Had two MK1 Granadas 3.0 & 1 MK2 2.8 thought that they were great back then, but in all honesty my 2.6 Omega was far better in my opinion, all 3 of the Ford's leaked when it rained and had sopping wet footwells in the front.

I think that every Ford I've owned has leaked.  ::)

I was about to agree, but then remembered my 1989 3 door escort estate. That had many foibles, but it didn't leak.

The other two I've owned, Mk3 Mondeo TDDi and Ford Jaguar X-type both liked to take on water.  ::)

I briefly owned an X-Type Mondeo with a 3 litre V6 and all wheel drive.

Never again. :-X

Would never buy a Ford again, don't like any of the models currently available apart from the 5.0 Mustang.

Funnily enough, I spotted the new Puma this morning, so thought I'd have a look online as to what it is, what is does etc.

One feature... It has a rubber-lined boot, which you can wash out using a hose....

I thought to myself, "There will be plenty of water in there, no need for a hose".

Yes, until I traced the leak, the spare wheel well on my Mondeo became a pond very quicly in wet weather.  ::)

That was the spec we had. Managed that special combo of being both slow and thirsty. Shame really because on paper the 3.0 should at least have been adequate, but wasn't.

The old man had a 3.0v6 manual S-type. A fugly little so n so, but a much better car than the x. I'm hoping that the same power plant at 280bhp/tonne in the kit car will be much more lively.  :y
