I noticed earlier that the legend that is Pete C has joined us!

For those of you unaware, his epic restorations of Mk. III Cortinas (all on YouTube) are simply on another level.

Welcome aboard, Pete!

Indeed, my draw dropped when Pete commented on one of my Live stream videos. Pete is embarking on restoring some old Krypton Tuning gear and was seeking some advice.

Ah, I did wonder why he'd joined! A mate of mine is trying to get an old valve-based Sun ignition analyser to work; whether he has or not, I know not.

I can't believe the diverse interests I seem to have in common with others on these forums... I too am a classic Ford enthusiast, my first car was a mk2 Cortina! (In the 90s, when they were already old and rare.)

I'm not old enough to remember Cortina's, but I do remember those Siera's! My Dad used to have one, it was a company car, he always had them until the Mondeo's came about.

Regards,

lloyd

I seem to remember that ukdave2002 on the oldclassiccar forum had some experience and knowledge of Sun analysers. Viewing profile (oldclassiccar.co.uk)

@colourmaster That's a beauty! I love the early ones with the clear indicators. Is that Olympic Blue? Don't remember ever seeing a Cortina in that colour.
