Nope, it's still fucking grim, even after a wash.

I have a strange liking for these. They drive better than a Vectra C I reckon, and go like poo off a spade for what they are. That one has cruise control too - although mine's a posher model, being pre-2003 it misses out.

I thought the earlier ones had cruise on high models and later ones had them from 04 on. my dad's lx has cruise and there's a y plated ghia nearby owned by a chap I know what has cruise too. Optional maybe then?

Sacked it off, scrappy came for it today.

 

Meanwhile I think I've advertised the Sinnis 125 too cheap, so I'm going to stick it in for an MOT.

99% of the time I listen to my instincts when I buy a car, for some reason this time I didn't. Got a bad vibe off this car so it had to go.
Sadly, there wasn't really any diesel to rob out of it first either.

Not too far away this one, so whanged down in the van, paid, went home, waited for rain to stop and walked back with the mobile cloud.

Fared quite well for one of these, at the moment the only noticeable thing is a broken spring, which seem quite common.

 

 

 

*Edit: also put the Sinnis 125 in for an MOT and spending £150 on it :(

Mine's an 02-plate Ghia and doesn't have it.  The 53-plate Zetec I had before did - I think it became standard fitment for the 2004 model year.

Where's the rust? That's not a real Ka!

 

Well bought, though! The last Ka I saw was metallic purple, had a hole directly under the filler cap you could see the road through, and it was being driven by Tayne, as it was a 'courtesy' car from a body repair place who were tidying up some scratches on his bimmer.

Not on diesels . I looked at it when i bought smellypoos one. Apparently diesels didn't have the right controls, so therefore couldn't be retrofitted.

It's just sat there unused, with a puncture on the o/s/r tyre I think :(  It's really not getting the use that it should, so I'll be raffling or selling it very shortly.

You have mail, Jams.

 

 

Meanwhile, in an attempt to prove you cannot win 'em all, here's half a job I abandoned earlier...

I was trying to help a neighbour and also a scrapyard owning mate, but it was too much hassle in the end. The car needs to be gone by 7.00am tomorrow, he can't collect until Tuesday as he's so busy and I can't keep it for him.

 

I think my jump leads are knackered, so it wouldn't fire up.

I think these wee Kas are tidy looking motors, not everyone will agree I know. They are very 'of their time' Ford styling wise and drive superbly. I looked for an Endura E one before I bought the Megane.

Despite the playing-havoc-with-my-OCD headlight, this now has 12 months MOT. I broke the last mirror head off getting it out of the van, but unbelievably there's some budget ones for £4.99 (a pair, inc. postage!) on an internet auction site.

Smart went last night, now trying to find a (sub £800) Kangoo or Berlingo car, ideally wheel chair accessible type.

That's not a bad looking wee motorbike. May I respectfully suggest that you remove the top box when you're taking the For Sale photos: they always make bikes look a bit frumpy, IMHO.

 

Not as frumpy as my CBR600F looked with a bag of coal bungee'd on the seat, mind.
