My friend Greg Wilkinson sent me this link to a very interesting tow vehicle. I clipped this picture from the gentleman's blog, but its really worth reading about at the blog post itself which is linked below. It may a few of you get there if I mention that the "cab" is a modified minivan.
As for the Escort Mk 1, yeah I think they are great. I was really surprised to be walking along the street in a small village at the northern tip of Scotland and seeing that car. Its actually amazing how few interesting cars are on the road these days.
