In the lead-up to Targa South Island, running October 27 to November 2, 2014, Greg Goudie dropped by our studio with his 1969 Ford Escort RS1600 MkI that he’ll be competing in throughout the event.

During the photoshoot he shared a bit of the car’s history with us. The car was originally built by Neil Allport, with Targa in mind, as Greg explains:

The classic Escort is featured in the November 2014 issue of New Zealand Classic Car magazine, available here.
