Day 1 of our 3 day trip and it was a good start as we made our way up the M6, to Chorley, to view a lovely 1977 Ford Escort RS2000.
Our intention was to view 3 x RS2000’s during our trip. Working on behalf of our client, our objective was to source a good example within a budget. We were not looking for a show winning car and if work was required then this was also acceptable providing it stayed within the budget.
We had had several talks with the owner of our 1977 Ford Escort RS2000 and we were quietly confident that this was not going to let us down and it sure didn’t.
Yes, the paintwork could be improved in places and the original interior needed a little tidying but this car is an absolute stunner.
A successful first visit meant we did not need to view the other 2 vehicles. Now on to our hotel for the evening.
This trip brought back some great memories as we settled in to the Shaw Hill Golf and Spa Hotel for the evening. many years ago Gordon and Craig lived just 500 yards away from this hotel and Craig frequented the gym facilities there on a regular basis. We couldn’t help but visit our old home to look back at the fond memories.
Shaw Hill Golf and Spa Hotel is set in a beautiful location near Chorley in Lancashire, offering unrivalled Leisure Breaks, Golf Breaks, Weddings, Conference and Meeting Room facilities. This glorious stone mansion was built circa 1700 by the Crosse family and amazingly is still a family run business.
