Good to see you back Bub, shite cars are a good constant in life when other problems crop up. I think.

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...

Sorry to hear about relationship woes Daz, but welcome back to the beige place. That Fiesta looks a tidy little thing, not much really to go wrong with the 1.3 HCS Valencia either.

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.

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!

Kia carens was averaging around 22-24. Maybe break 28 on a long run. Enlighten me if I'm wrong, I just thought they would be capable of around 25/26 from info online.
