Reminder - "Cosworth" Open House - February 18, 2017

This will be our first open house for 2017, and will have a specific focus on Cosworth YB powered Fords (and maybe an exception or two that will be special). Since we have three Ford Escort Cosworth RS cars in the building right now, we thought it made sense to do a Cosworth themed open house. Come on by, and feel free to invite a friend.

Event Details:
Date - Saturday, February 18th, 2017
Time - 10:00 AM
Location - You must be signed up for our mailing list for the physical address
What should I bring? Your Cosworth!

If you are local and own a Cosworth (Escort, Sierra, Sapphire, etc.), please contact me directly so I can include you in the count.  If you have something unique and Cosworth powered, drop me a note as well, and would love to accommodate if we can.

Related to Cosworths - That car in the picture up there is for sale, and you can see all the pictures and details at this link - 1995 Ford Escort Cosworth RS

Look forward to "talking Cosworth" with all of you in February.

UPDATE -- Committed cars that will be there - Four Escort Cosworths, one Sierra Cosworth 2WD, two Sierra Cosworth 4x4s, and one "secret Cosworth powered surprise" so far.  Please reply to me if you want to bring something so I can keep the list updated.
