It is as I said it was Escort Maxi, one of the McElvaneys , ex Simmonite car, bought by someone in the North I think Roy Haslett who used to rent it out,, maybe he sold it.

Roy Haslett's Escort is not a maxi model ... but the fore runner Escort F2 with forest spec. mountune engine. It is one of the ex-Simmonite cars ( both seats have the sisters names embroidered into the backrests ) and FYI it is painted silver under the bonnet / interior ...was already painted red exterior when he bought it from Chris Birbeck.
Think the reg. McS mentions for it is correct.

Is R15FMC not the Escort Maxi Philip Young used in the BRC ?

Anyone for 845 WIF OR RJO946P
845 WIF used to be Donie O' Sullivans mk2, the origanal silver bullett. He sold it to Donal O' Brien. Donal scrated the paintwork on it on the Imokilly single stage and John Moynihan bought it. He sold it to **** Mcquaid, but rented it back from **** for the baby lakes but then John scratched the paint work goin up Molls gap so he fixed her up n gave he back to ****. Currently another fine example of a Millington powered machine!

RJO946P is either Slattery's old car or new, can't be bothered checkin!
