    Interesting. It seems that the general feeling is to have a few mods to improve the drive without affecting the exterior appearance of the car too much. Although I had said I was more leaned towards standard, I have to say that when my 3rd Gen Firebird was on the road (and hopefully will be again one day if I can find the time and motivation), that drove like what I can only describe as a knackered Mk3 Cortina! (and you'll know what I mean if you've ever driven one). I still loved driving it nonetheless, but confess that I would have been willing to make the necessary changes in order to stiffen everything up.

    Nowt wrong with MK3 cortinas, I had one once! However, it was stock and at the time seemed to handle quite well.
    Cheers Chris

    I agree, I like all Brit classic Fords, particulary MK1 Granadas. It's just that I drove a couple of old Cortinas many years ago and found them a bit jelly like on the rear end. But they were old from what I remember and probably had the rear axle void bushes hanging out lol

    I sometimes appreciate modified cars if they are done well and look right, but that's subjective. I like my own cars to be as bone stock as possible!

    The general consensus seems to be mostly stock looking with maybe a few subtle appearance mods.
    Mechanically, we seem to be happy to do more, suspension, steering, brakes, wheels and engines all fair game.
