Itâ€™s hard to believe that itâ€™s over 30 years since the Ford Escort Series One RS turbo first appeared.
Today these carâ€™s are highly valued and highly sought after and it is rare to see them on Cornish roads.
And then out of the blue one of them, in immaculate condition, recently turned up at Powellâ€™s garage at Redruth needing some attention to its braking system.
For Powellâ€™s Paul Richards this was a moment to savour:
â€œMany years ago I was lucky enough to own Series One but as you do in your youth I sold it on. I hadnâ€™t seen one for yearâ€™s until Mr and Mrs Smith turned up unannounced in theirâ€™s. I was in my element advising them on the brake system and how we could fix it. Whatâ€™s more the car was immaculate – it was as though it just come out of the showroom – amazing for a car that is now 31 years old.
Iâ€™m extremely pleased to say that Mr and Mrs Smith were delighted with the outcome of their visit to Powells.â€
