I'm late for bed, so I only skimmed it. Looks very nice. You've got several nice write-ups in your history and performance sections. Overall, a very attractive site that just needs the content to fill it up... but I'm sure you're working on that.
Sorry I haven't answered you - forgot all about this thread!! Actually, when I said I have a little piece of Mkv history, I really meant I drive one!! Although, I have quite a bit of information that might be of interest to you.
Below is a link to probably one of the most comprehensive history sites for the European Ford Escort. It makes the 'piece' I wrote look very insignificant. But, if I can find mine, I will pm you.
