    Nothing to do with the subject really it's just the name cought my eye. The Martin Ford I know races formula 2 Stockcars number 19. So that's how he funds his racing.

    My Mam used to Get my School Uniform from C&A and the Kylie section in Mckays. I was small and skinny so it's the only places that used to fit me.
