There is a bit of a story behind this photo...... an array of classic Fords.
One that I was lucky enough to have visited 2 or 3 times.
Its Ford’s private heritage collection in the UK, not open to the public.
Cars used for press shoots etc.
While working for Ford we borrowed some of them for an event.
The second photo shows us fuelling up before returning them, I was driving the last car, the Escort Cosworth Group A Rally car.

And that’s just a small number, there are about 100 in total, from Model T through to current, and even a couple of the Ford Transit Super Vans they built (A transit with an F1 engine centrally mounted, Google it for more).

For bonus points name all the vehicles in both photos.

Forgot to add, a lot of you have met the lady in the gas station filling the yellow Escort Cosworth. And as mentioned I was driving the Group A Escort Rally car that is just waiting to fill-up.

Her and her husband (Tom & Michelle very good friends of ours) flew over from the UK and joined our fall run on PEI in a rented Mustang about 4 or 5 years ago.
