This shape of Fiesta were everywhere,  and then they suddenly disappeared! 

Exactly what I was thinking! These and the Puma were genuinely good little cars apart from the rust, I had a Puma and it was great fun.

They were cars that were used. I had one as my driving school car for a while. When they brought out the new model there was a supply problem so we went over to the Focus. Good little cars, if a little underpowered. Well put together. We had the 1.25 engine ones. I think rust and the fact they were youngsters cars finished a lot of them. Many ended their lives upside down in a ditch, or hedge.
