As I've posted a few messages I thought I'd introduce myself.
Apart from a few years splippage, I've driven Fords nealy all my driving life, from a 1958 100E, Mk1 (x2) / 2 /3 Escort, Mk3 / 4 / 5(?) Cortina, MK 1 Fiesta (No Sierra or "Mundano" - hated the look!), Ka(!)and a Mk1 Focus.
I have to admit I was nearly turned to the "other side". I owned a couple of Vauxhalls (and a couple of very, very fast German money pits!) for a while but in the end I was drawn back to the Ford when the Focus came out.
I've just had 5 years of faultless driving in a 1.8 TDCi Focus and now I'm moving onto a rather nice 1.8 TDCi Titanium C-Max..............
Another chapter in my driving opens!
