What made you buy a granny?

Post  FredTransit on Sun Sep 20, 2009 4:08 pm

Ok I had a financial motive, but always loved the car and the Granada was unbelievably my first car at 44! Before that I only drove transits. I only drove one car since passing my test in 1986, that was a Mk3 cortina only months before getting the granny, and was the first auto I have EVER driven!
We bought the Mk2 Granada Ghia X (ish) off ebay to use in a film called Clubbed, it was set in the 80s and mine was a plain clothes police car.
Why did you get yours?

My first was an 81 2.8 i s in white. It was a relatively new car then (1991) I got it as I needed a bigger car than my 2.8i Capri and it fitted the bill Smile Since then I have had another 11 of them and I still believe they are Fords best ever car Very Happy

About 12years ago one of my sons mates was it my house.Happend to say to the wee laddie that I liked his dads Mk2 2.8 Smile .2 hours later his dad was at the door (first time I had met him)3 saying that he new of a 2.8 in glasgow for sale.3 hours later I had my first Mk2 2.8 Black A999 JLN.
A few months later I bought a gold one MES 600Y. About a year later I swapped the black one for a 2.3 LX minted ex Blackpool area car reg ???.
Had to sell 2.3 cause I was moving to Spain. After seeing Freds motor in Retro cars I had to get another one but they are few and far between across here.
About 2 months ago I picked up a champagne 2.8 needing TLC.Here we go again Wink affraid
