Time to work out a better deal or I will only insure the car for 6 months a year as I we be only using it in the summary

The Ford Escort RS Cosworth has been a dream car for many since its inception in 1992. The main selling point was the Cosworth YBT engine, a highly tunable turbocharged 2-litre engine which had an output of over 224bhp. This is just one of the many reasons that Dwayne fell in love with this car. Over the years he has had a range of cars but he did not want to put as many miles on the car as his job would have entailed.
When Dwayne changed for his new job as a Financial Advisor at HSBC in central london he knew he did not really need a car which meant it was the perfect chance to buy a weekend car. After many search's he finally found one from a Ford show room that had everything he wanted and the perfect opportunity to build his AWD monster he has always wanted.
Since he has purchased the car it has gone into a range of tuning garages to make sure all the modifications are bullet proof. Keep your eyes posted as there is more to come.
