1992 Ford Sierra Sapphire 1.6i LX

I was actually hoping to find an older Sierra I’d glimpsed near here earlier in the year, but found this tidy Sapphire instead. Had a quick chat with the owner, who’d just braved a walk on the seafront, and he told me he’d owned for it the last 15-16 years and is very happy with it. Starting to be the odd problem getting parts, but it seems like something he’ll be sticking with for some time yet (the tax to next October certainly suggests as much).

 

I think he liked the fact someone took an interest in his car and wanted to take a photo. I nearly didn’t bother when I saw him approaching, but I’m glad I got him into conversation about it.

 

‘GV’ Suffolk registration, so only moved one county along into Essex.

 

Like the Civic and 205 shot, another interesting comparison with my Camry.
