Another one taken in Paris…
Ideas of that type had filled my mind whilst I still had the Escort. Unfortunately, in later life it seemed to need new panels painted every year, so doing a total paint job would have been more than it was worth at twelve years of age, and anyhow, I don't know of a single place here that could do that sort of artwork. A straight, lasting paint replacement on a wing or roof seemed to be asking the impossible. I must have dropped about €2000 on paint in the last two years of having that car... with the official Ford garage, too.
That's why I sold it and got the new Fiesta.
It had only done about 60,000 miles (the Escort) as far as I can remember, nothing at all for an 1800cc engine that was well-serviced.
I really envy those places where there is this ethos of car-art, and the means of doing it properly.
