You know something folks, I may have been a bit twattish and abrupt with people on here but you are all truly outstanding folks. Thanks for the well wishes. As for two sentences about life, I didn't want to say too much in the car topic side or at all if I'm honest. Thanks for the fiesta love. I will get some pics of the not so nice bits, I'm sure it's not beyond redemption and matching plates and dealer sticker too. Could be up for cannock but will have the real bub with me as I now can't leave him at home!

Glad you're back bub. This place is much better now. I've been through a divorce and it wasn't pleasant but now on very good terms with the ex. This is important as we have two kids together. That fiesta looks a good one.

Mine lasted 15 years, was seperated for 6 years and finally got my divorce this year. i have a daughter who at the time was 15 so i tried hard to keep things cordial. I get on better with my ex now than i did when i was married. I've managed to buy another house, which is slightly bigger but with no garage, and finally found a girlfriend who is mad on cars too. So whilst sometimes things can seem bad, there can be light and a better future at the end of the tunnel.

Best of luck for the future Daz, and hopefully there will be plenty of shite, but not shit.

Sorry to hear that Bub, but on the bright side the fiesta is weapons grade, if you end up with the cav as well you'll be winning.

Good luck on the new job too. I imagine it's a bit steadier than the delivery work and it makes a monumental difference having people working in home care who actually care...

Welcome back! :)

 

That Fiesta looks ace, especially inside. The seats in late mark 3s are really plush, no doubt due to the Mondeo effect. I remember having a 'Classic' courtesy car in 1997 which had the same 'Papillon' seat trim as certain versions of the aforementioned mid-rangers.

Sad news about the dog, and the wife.

But good to see your "Man Maths" game is strong with the Mk 3 Fester.

 

I had one ( well, two) as you know.

Fecking hated the piece of shit. Took to leaving it unlocked from about 18 months old onwards in the hope some fecker would rob it - they never did. Eventually P/X on a Laguna.


The Picasso is the future Morris Minor.

Thanks, I prefer the dashboard in these, so early 90s Ford. Drives great too. Unsure of the fuel economy at the minute so may be up for sake sooner than I thought but I'll give it a more thought at least

Not so much an issue as the larger car will be used for longer runs and I can't see it being much worse than the kia carens 1.8!
