Hi all my name is Andy (also known on here and twitter as flatapex)

I will hopefully be driving my new focus from friday, it is currently at a local garage/bodyshop sat waiting to be insured/picked up/the last of the purchase paid.

its a y reg focus 1.4 mk1, I come from a family of ford owners, my dad has a classic rochdale gt (1950's kit car with an engine from a ford popular) and a 1.6 focus mk2 and my mum has a fiesta on a 61 plate on motability, fiancee drives a fiat (same as i used to) but has owned a fiesta mk3 and a ka before.

Good to know the ford Focus is a good choice. First thing to do is to have an oil/filter change (like a blood transfusion) unless it's had one recently. I've had a couple of fords, an Anglia (sloping back window),and escort, and Mark 2 & Mk 4 Cortinas. Good workhorses as your Dad will know. Trouble is you can't get to work on modern cars unless you are a mechanic. Lots of electronics as well and emissions stuff.

Its had the oil sorted (I am buying the car from my mechanic who is also a friend of my dad's) my dad is also a former mechanic (and also former rally driver from the 70s- one of his cars back then was a mk2 escort)

Its on 82k at the moment, also had a new clutch and cambelt in the last 12 months, bodywork is having every little imperfection sorted out in January (at my mechanic's expense) and it is in really nice condition.

Hopefully it will be a loyal workhorse, my previous car was a fiat stilo which I owned for 8 1/2 years
