Default Small Fords meet in Williamstown on Sunday?

I saw heaps of Cortinas and Escorts, and even a Sierra coming through the main street there. Any photos from the day? There was also an F-350 which sounded like a semi!

Small Ford Sunday, it used to be held at Bundoora so lucky I checked before driving there. I had a quick look to get some ideas - there was an Escort with a Nissan FJ20, the Focus XR5T engine is only 2cm longer (approx), but I think it might be asking a bit much without firewall surgery. I also spoke to a guy with a 2L duratec that makes 300hp or so, that seems a much more feasible option!

There were some really spectacular cars there, but I haven't downloaded my photos from the camera yet.

Thanks for the replies everyone, would love to see the photos some time. There were some fantastic classic cars passing by which I never get to see anymore. Loved seeing 1970s Cortinas driving in a row and all the Escort panel vans.

I like the originality of the car with the colour coded hubcaps and still with the period number plates. Like the green TF Wagon.
