K plate spotted in the wild today! 

K28 UBJ - is it on the survival list? Registered 28th April 1993

Apologies for the potato cam quality, my phone always seems to take the best pictures when you haven't got numerous people in a Tesco car park giving you funny looks while scrabbling to get your phone out of your pocket to excitedly photograph a 30 year old Mondeo... 🤣

Looks like an LX, I was trying to work out if it was another bASe but then saw the badge on the wing. And of course the alloys. They can't be factory fit?

^ Just noticed it's got a pretty colourful MOT history, and over 130k on the clock. Someone must like it 🤷

That was a pretty bad fail at the last one, which I'm sure could have easily seen one of these off 15 years ago

They’re late model Mk2 alloys.

I had a 96 1.8 that started to rattle a bit at the top end by 130k, that might have been from me caning the fuck out of it though 😂

All my rental and rent to buy Mk2s were either 2.0 or 1.8 diesels. Having said that, the only Zetec Mondeo I managed to kill was a Mk1 2.0si which I caned with a shot head gasket. Come to think of it, I did have one 1.8LX which I bought cheap from another driver with only six months taxi life left that managed to make it to retirement.

Thanks yep, posted upthread, sold now and new owner says on Facebook he is going to save it, but time will tell once he gets into the issues I suspect...

I know 1995 was a very different time in F1 and they didn't bring the safety car out for every minor accident or packet of crisps that blew on to the track. I remember when a broken down car would just get left by the side of the track until the end of the race.

I can't remember when that changed but I don't remember ever seeing the cars driving slow enough to keep behind a Mondeo. Even a fast one.

@YossI do wonder too, and felt there might be a hint of fake news of a 170bhp V6 being a pace car, but this advert does seem to back up the initial post.
