Yeah that's a Ford Escort Mexico.  A highly desirable vintage car here in Thailand.  I know at least 2 car collectors in Bangkok who'd love to get their hands on that.

RS2000 I thought was a mk2 also has Mexico sticker on the door. Where is the photo showing it has UK plates?

RIP

 

Different car. One is an image taken from wiki.

 

If that is a genuine MK1 Escort Mexico in the post i would be interested in finding the owner of it.

Bit morbid but Samui must be mid 30 degrees and they've taped a crime scene opened the quarter vent window and shut the door! 

 

Probably be 50+ degrees in that car.

Yet again a  post partly read!

 

"The waiter said he knew the tourist well because he was a months-long yearly visitor to Koh Samui."

 

Yawn!

Twenty-seven year olds don't die of heart attacks caused by snakes and ladders. Seen when people frequent one place too often and become predictable targets.

Noone has checked his bank account yet?

I 'd be damned if no money has been withdrawn since the guy ended up in his oldsmobile.

Learn to be wise.

First lession learnt in LOS : No money, no honey.

Stick to that and you will be spared.

I do give a hoot.

The car appears to be a Ford Escort MK1 from 1973.

 

Doubt the guy was a regular tourist. Whatever, so what`s it to be, suicide of heart attack. Case closed.

It's even rarer than that. The decal is for a Mexico. It also has flared arches. If it is a genuine Mexico it's worth a lot of money back in the UK. Currently go for around £30,000 - £40,000 for a good one. What the hell is one of those doing out there?
