[quote name="hanson10"]Everyone at work keeps telling me to scrap my Mk2 orion 1600 ghia for a new focus.
Why the hell would I want to do that? It's a 1991 (very late Mk2) - sills are mint, arches not too bad, diamond white, EFi. Pretty standard. Gets me from A to B happily. Starts every morning without fail. And costs me Ã‚Â£70 a year to maintain. (Ã‚Â£40 for MOT, Ã‚Â£30 to service myself).
Also the car owes me Ã‚Â£230 original purchase price. If some wanker demolishes it whilst on the road in an accident, it's not much money to lose. You lose more than that as soon as you drive a new focus off the forecourt.
Not only that... - provided I dont get it wrapped round a lamppost or a car - the value is only going to go up in price. Hows that for depreciation. I reckon its worth Ã‚Â£350 now on ebay. I've owned it for two years, and I've had my Ã‚Â£230's worth out of it, and yet I could probably sell it for more than that now.
Stuff your new focus's up your arse. I'm happy driving a fabulous piece of shite.
If you are a player. There is a helpful news for you. I sell cheap good dangerous toys, lawnmowers and mini-moto sound like bee trapped in bisquit tin. Me honourable man. Me take money and wun.
Copy and paste WANKER. I hope you contract cat aids and pass it on to your mum and dad who are brothers anyway.
