Um? Can't let this pass. GT-40, your first post suggests you might have an inside track and then your next suggests you don't think that they will produce these cars - as though your 'spies' had reported. What connections do you have? Why should we take you any more seriously than the Muppet, sorry Moped?
The rumour mill at MK seemed to suggest that next year might bring an Escort MK1 from Hornby.
My source - idle gossip at the swapmeet. Possibly about as valid as GT-40's source.
Funny enough Astro! No seriously if people dont want to believe things they read on the forum then its up to them, after all who are any of us? But I was intrigued but the prospect of these cars and was seeing somebody who would have of known, yesterday. He told me that is was the first he'd heard of it, and made an appropriate phone call which came back negative.
Sorry Wankle to seem a bit James Bond about this but my source has in the past has been linked to leaks from Margate, and so I cant go into anymore details.
Sorry GT, no offence intended. It is just that unattributed gossip is frustrating even though it kinda fuels boards like this. I guess a lot of us do want to believe there are Can-Ams around the corner.
Like JohnP says, I hope the new boy takes note.
So, did you ask your shadowy figure if the Escort MK1 was a bum-steer, too?
