  • OH VALET? mines the RED Festiva.

    here's an undated pic from an advertising supplement from some UK newspaper. this is the shipping docks in S.Korea. this load is going somewhere. maybe one of these is yours now! here's what i notice: i only see the 1 in the foreground with a festiva nameplate on the hatch. not a decal either. all the tailights are US style. all have black window frame paint. all seem to be LHD (antenna position). all look to have high back bucket seats. all have 3rd rear brakelight. all look like they have steel wheels. all have a defrost grid but none have a rear wiper. all look to have black bumpers. none have the FORD oval. anything i miss?

        One awesome picture there.

        Maybe they got plated once they reached US shores? Maybe they never knew where each shipment went?

              Looks like smoothy tail lights. All are 88/89?

              The FORD oval prolly be put on here?

              Either way ... that is a very Kool pic!

              PS ... I didnt notice the mirros either. Is that to keep from being broke or maybe for the differnt mirror optins?
              I wonder if the ford dealers/receivers of the cars had option packages for them, and installed them at dealerships?

                    Could very well be that some of the cars, whether way off in the back, or up front, are owned by people on this forum.

                    Just something to think about.

                        There is a Canadian flag on the building in the background. Maybe they are going to Canada.

                          Good catch! It took me a second to see it, even after you mentioned it!

                            That means that they are all going to get the swoopy power mirror option.
