    Yes! Now the seller better not screw me over and accept that I have won the auction.

    I can't say I really hate a car brand, I think many are overrated for what they are. I've never been keen on Fords but I loved driving this

    It's been the only Blue Oval I've enjoyed driving. The rest have been pretty meh. Not woefully awful but not particularly great.

    Got the recharged spheres fitted, I have to say Pleiades did an excellent job. They all returned painted, tested, labelled and regassed where necessary for a very reasonable cost. Also this happened:

    I've also done a full service, so this car should be more or less ready to go. All it needs now is height correction using Lexia and a 4 wheel alignment, which I'll get done ASAP. I'll be taking it for a long trip for work next week to evaluate the WAFT, then my brother and 3 mates are returning this fine chariot to its homeland in style on a ski trip to the Alps in a couple of weeks' time. Bonne chance!

    Wind kaos here in Gateshead.  Fences galore, at least one tramploine, a couple of escaped huskies roaming the streets (😲), some decent sized trees gone and a bungalow has lost it's roof entirely.  Police had the road closed at one point but now we just drive around the carnage.
    Snow has been minimal although it's tried all day.

    There seemed to be about 17 different variants of the Mazda 323 in 5 years in the 1990' but they nailed the design with this one.
    This has the 2.0 v6, which according to the rev counter goes to 7000 rpm red line.Cool! The sills would want some zooming in on though.

    The company I was working for until August bought a genuine 1980s HMWVV to do a project for the US military for £13k, do I'm not sure why you'd pay £10k for that piece of crap.

    Completely agree.
    It'll be interesting if it's a new stand alone one though (my guess is yes) but I bet it'll be a fecker for businesses to facilitate. The requirements will all but rule out non-franchised, in the early days at least.

    No big trip or poo count as car was 10 mins walk away.
     
    Collected the BMW I mentioned last week.  Took it for a test drive on Tuesday-very nice drive. Heater fans fixed themselves (bloke put new hedgehog in-made no difference-fans came on halfway through test drive)-I think it was a dodgy relay-anyway bits are cheap for these.
    It was put through an MOT on Thursday and passed with three advisories-rear tyres-which I already knew (seller told me about these) and a slight oil leak from the sump.
    Paid a grand-not bad in these times-94000 miles, a couple of owners, stamped service booklet up to last year (for what its worth) and a body that is severely lacking in rust (apart from a small pleb on the rear arch).
    Plus point again is steel wheels (wifes car)-spare is MIA but one from my spare Senator wheels fits.
     
    So happy so far- will tax on Weds , change engine oil,gearbox oil and spark plugs.
    Focus being picked up next week by car take back-£241-had it 9 years-paid £2000 so not bad apart shitting the PAS pipes 3 times.

    I've got a meeting on Monday with some bods about the next phase of Apprenticeship Standards and EV-ness.  I'll be  very much a fly on the wall but it'll be inetrested to see what direction they're thinking of going in, i.e. EV to be included in the normal Standards or create a new one.

    Was lucky to get back to Darlington yesterday.
    Tomintoul was already like this at 8.00 yesterday morning. Luckily got over the Lecht and through Cockbridge, delivered to Aboyne and got through the Braemar to Glenshee stretch before the snow gates got shut.
    County Durham was a bit naughty too,  I've been driving curtainsiders to Scotland over 10 years and I've never known the cross Pennine stretch of the A66 to be so bad.
