Spooky or what?

I used to live on Holt Drive which is a gnat's c*ck away from where you are. Up until a year or so ago I was in Loughborough regularly on a Friday afternoon but now it's only the odd ocasion if I need to go the bank or get something for the other half!!

XR2 eh--I had one of those--mine was a red one on a "C" plate--had it after my XR3i which I loved so much that I used to wash and polish it every week without fail.Then I saw a RS Turbo in gleaming white and that was that; so bye bye XR3i hello RS Turbo.

What a machine that was--bog standard--but there wasn't much that out performed it until I saw another hot little number.

Orion ghia injection in stunning black with every extra you could get on it---I loved that car more than my XR3i--lost count of the number of hours spent on it washing, leathering, polishing and generally titivating it. Then some thieving b*****d stole it and I was gutted!!

Never mind--I'm in love aqain--my new Fiesta's great but because I've spent so much time chatting I haven't washed it yet and I've had it 6 days!!!!!!!!!!!

My new babe is the new shape--she handles like a dream although I'm still running her in at the moment--I know you don't really need to but in my experience it pays in the long run.

I can feel her wanting to go already but I'm resisting the temptation!!

It's not easy though.......patience is a virtue or so they say..........
andyroo89
oh fair enough not been in one of them yet, if they are anything like the mk6 it should fly round corners!!! yeah true i did with my mk3 fez, i limited it to 3000 aswell for while i ran it in to kill any thought of ragging it. i think 1000 miles is a bit much though.. i did a few hundred and it runs fine now.
