HERE WE HAVE MY LOVELY FORD GRANADA MK2 2.8 GL AUTOMATIC

YOU TUBE RUNNING WALK AROUND VIDEO - PLEASE NOTE IT LOOKS LIKE THE CAR IS SMOKING ITS NOT HE CASE IT WAS A VERY COLD MORNING WHEN I SHOT THE VIDEO I HAD JUST TAKEN IT TROUGH THE CAR WAS TO GET RID OF THE FROST ON IT THIS IS WHY THE RADIATOR ALSO APPEARS TO HAVE STEAM COMING FROM IT, IT WAS WHERE IT GOT WET FROM THE CAR WASH - http://youtu.be/5NERFJ10zeE

THE CAR HAS A LONG MOT AND TAX, DRIVES VERY WELL, NEW JVC CD PLAYER FITTED, SOME HISTORY WITH OLD MOTS ETC, HAS COVERED A MERE 59,000 MILES FROM NEW AND A JOY TO OWN

AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SUMMER THE WIFE AND I DISIDED TO CUT BACK OUR CLASSIC CAR COLLECTION, WE HAD FOUR, A MK4 CORTINA, TRIUMPH TOLEDO SOON TO BE SOLD, WOLSELEY 1300 MK2 AND A MINI, THE ONLY CAR BE COULD BARE TO PART WITH AFTER 5 YEARS WAS THE MINI, I THEN SPENT THE MONEY ON THIS GRANADA, ERR YES WELL I COULDN'T RESIST SAVING IT FROM ITS PREVIOUS OWNER WHO DIDN'T CARE FOR THE CAR, SO NOW I HAVE GOT THE GRANADA BACK TO A GOOD STANDARD SO THAT IT CAN BE USED EVERYDAY, WASN'T TO MUCH WORK AS THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD ONLY OWNED THE CAR NINE MONTHS AND THE OWNER BEFORE THAT WAS A GRANADA LOVER,

THE CAR IS FOR SALE  NOW FOR GENUINE REASONS, FIRST THE WIFE ONLY WANTS TO KEEP HER WOLSELEY, I CANT BEAR TO LOSE MY CORTINA AND WE CANT AFFORD TO KEEP ANY OTHERS WITH 2 EVERYDAY FORD FIESTA TO MAINTAIN ASWELL, THE OTHER REASON IS BUYING THE GRANADA WAS KIND OF DEFEATING THE OBJECT OF CUTTING DOWN OUR CLASSIC CARS AND I HAVE DONE MY JOB FOR THE CAR BY GETTING IT BACK TO A USABLE STANDARD NOW ITS TIME FOR SOME ONE ELSE TO TAKE OVER FINISHING MINOR WORK THE CAR NEEDS TO BE A MINT EXAMPLE

I BROUGHT THE CAR OFF GUMTREE, I PAID £850 FOR IT, WHEN I GOT TO DUNSTABLE I WAS GREATED BY A REAL LIFE DINGLES FARM, THE CAR WAS MOT'D BACK IN MAY THEN LEFT UNUSED, FLAT TYRES, KNACKERED BATTERY, AND WEEDS GROWING OUT OF THE WHEEL ARCHES, NOT TO MENTION A THEFT ATEMPT ON THE CAR HAD RENDERED THE IGNITION LOCK USELESS, WHICH WAS THE REASON THE CAR WAS STOPPED FROM BEING A DAILY DRIVE, IT WAS LATE AT NIGHT AND I WAS GOING TO WALK AWAY BUT I KNEW IF I DIDN'T GET THE CAR HOME IT WOULD BE LEFT FOREVER AND END UP ON THE BANGER TRACK, I REMOVED THE REST OF THE STEERING LOCK, PUMPED UP THE TYRES, THE OWNER GAVE ME ANOTHER BATTERY AND WITH JUMP START SHE STARTED FIRST TIME AND PURRED AWAY, THEN IT RAN OUT OF PETROL SO WE WENT AND GOT SOME PETROL AND RETURNED FOR THE CAR AND PAID FOR IT THEN LEFT 4 HOURS AFTER WE FIRST ARRIVED WE WAS ON OUR WAY BACK TO KENT

THE CAR COVERED 5 MILES THE BROKE DOWN, THIS WAS A BECAUSE THE SECOND BATTERY THE OWNER GAVE ME WAS KNACKERED I CALLED THEM TO ASK FOR HELP AND THERE ATTITUDE WAS WE GOT YOUR MONEY CLEAR OFF, SO I CALLED THE AA WHO DUELLY FITTED A NEW BATTERY AND CHARGED ME £116, OFF WE GO AGAIN, THEN JUST  BEFORE THE RETURN TO THE MOTORWAY WE HAD TO STOP AGAIN, THE FRONT BRAKE CALIPER WAS BINDING, THE REAR WHEEL WAS SNATCHING, I LET THE BRAKES COOL DOWN THEN OFF WE WENT AGAIN, PRAYING SHE WOULD BRING US BACK TO NORTHFLEET, ARRIVAL HOME 8 HOURS AFTER WE LEFT,

THE NEXT DAY I TOOK THE CAR TO A GARAGE RUN BY A FRIEND OF MINE, BEXLEY GARAGE, IN BEXLEY VILLAGE, KENT. THEY HAVE BEEN MOTING AND FIXING MY CARS FOR YEARS AND THERE SERVICE IS SECOND TO NONE, ROB AND DAVE DID WHAT THEY COULD OVER 2 DAYS, REBUILDING THE BRAKE CALIPERS AND FITTING NEW PADS, FITTING NEW REAR CYLINDERS AND CLEANING THE SYSTEM THROUGHOUT £120, THEN I CONTACTED JERRY FROM J AND J SERVICES, HE HAD A PRE FACELIFT, MK2 GRANADA, THIS WAS TO DONATE THE IGNITION BARREL, I ALSO TOOK THE HEAD LIGHTS INDICATORS AND REAR LIGHTS AT A VIEW OF MAKING THE CAR LOOK LIKE A PREFACELIFT £100 FOR THAT LOT, THE IGNITON BARREL WAS TO DIFFERENT SO I THEN DISIDED TO FITTED THE CORRECT FACELIFT BARREL, I CONTACTED SHANE FROM THE CONDOMS BANGER TEAM WHO WAS MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP, HE IS HAPPY TO SUPPLY PARTS FOR CORTINAS AND GRANADAS AND VERY HELPFUL, I PURCHASED THE FULL COLUMN FROM HIM, HE WELDED THE COLOUMN MOUNTING BRAKET SO IT WAS MORE DIFFICULT TO STEAL AGAIN £30,
