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

Apparently, the picture used for identification of the car model which shows a white and blue car with UK plates and N registration. Also it seems the "months-long" term in the article makes some others think "month-long"

There are no genuine factory Mk1 Escorts in Thailand. ...

 

There's at least one... the vehicle in the OP.

 

And I have seen others as well in Bangkok and Udon Thani.

Asphyxiating a young Norwegian by all accounts.

A deal go wrong? Money problems? Don't wanna speculate. Maybe we will read more the next days.

Good sleuthing... it's the very same car.

 

But retrofitted with a Nissan engine so that buggers the old 'Escort gas chamber' theory. But it looks like it was souped up with a Nitrous system so there's another avenue for endless, useless speculation opened up.

I think he meant factory Mexico or rs2000 editions. They are probably standard mk1s made to look like Mexico's etc.

The vehicle has U.K. number plates having lived in Koh Samui for more than 7 years I never ever came across this car which is surprising . RIP to the deceased .

The second photo is not the car in which the Norwegian died - just a photo to show the car model.

The doors are wide open on this one detectives,my theory is a cobra living under the drivers seat or even rabies or a dose of novichok.being that there was no ladyboy involved makes this a very suspicious case.maybe some one don't like Ford escort rs mexico's and had it in for him.

Its worse than that its definitely a case of   "mistaken Ford Escort"

Yes I owned a Ford Escort briefly once upon a time, that was after three Austin Allegros so I thought I deserved a bit of relief

Yes I did see that there were two different cars involved in the confusion on this thread honest

I was just pulling your leg my man because the confusion was cleared up some time back

I did something similar earlier in the thread because I commented on the exhaust gases without reading the whole of the thread, then I saw that I was maybe second at best with my comment so I removed it as I can see no point in being second especially when it had already been adequately covered

I would not normally bother explaining to this extent, but its wednesday again and the "Devil makes work for idle hands"

Everyone to his liking - but I usually answer at something - without reading all pages - sometimes a lot - 

If double or fourfold - I not care - ??
