A longstanding itch has been the mk1 focus. Like the ka and puma, it was launched at a time when I was approaching driving age and I read the reviews with anticipation. Rave reviews by all accounts, yet 20 years on the world has moved on and a mk1 focus is just another old car. I could never quite forget the impression it made on me at the time. In recent years I’ve had a puma, and am on my second ka. No foci, until now.
I’m not usually all that fussy with spec, but I was determined to get anything other than silver, petrol rather than diesel, 5 door hatch as I prefer the styling over 3 door and estate variants. Ghia would be nice.
This giffer owned 1.6 5 door Ghia cropped up and is due to be delivered by the grandson later this week. It’s a hand me down stop gap car until his usual wheels return from the garage later this week.....
I can’t quite figure out if they’d gone all tasteful and ebony on the fake wood by this stage or whether it’s still the the full on gopping original MFI- alike stuff. OBVs Im hoping it’s the latter.
