    Long day....
    Up 4am for work....finish at 2pm, skool run, then FiL asked me to help clear out the caravan, dam that took over 3 hours, and cause he's a nice guy he offered to deliver it too, dude gonna live in it outside his mums flat, so it had to be maneuvered into a corner space and quick run down refresher of how to do what and we left, I got home after 10pm and now I'm overtired...

    Hello, all. This place seems to cover a lot of the random crap I find interesting. And its comforting to see I'm not alone in the buy the cheapest example, spend too much and sell at an overall loss process of buying and selling cars.

    For me, it’s the mk3 mondeo ST. 
     
    I owned 3 or 4 of these all in hatchback flavour. I never had an estate (but I did have a titanium 2.2 between STs) and they were all brilliant cars. Comfy, economical, well spec’d, reliable…. I really miss owning one. They were fairly straight forward to work on too, not overly complicated. I drove everywhere in my old ones. I wish I’d had the estate version at some point but never bothered. I loved how interchangeable they were. Everything that bolts to a ghia X or ST will bolt to a base spec LX. My first was an LX 2.0 petrol. It ended up with ghiaX wood trim dash parts, leather steering wheel, ST half leather interior, zetec alloys…. Loved it. Would have another tomorrow but it’d have to be mint. I even had a head on crash in one at 60mph. Saved my life. Walked into the ambulance. 👌

    This. Top of the range ones had fuel injection. Enough extras to keep most happy. Reasonable economy and great reliability. Not overly complicated and most could look after them.
    Generally killed off by rot / neglect and low values - remember how common they were?
    For me, peak motoring.
