[size=3]Hiya everyone.

Not been on a car forum before.

I've owned my KA collection since 2002. I have so loved it! Unfortunately it's now at the end of it's life in that it needs so much work done that I can no longer justify spending the money on it.

Thanks to Fords "Scrappage" deal I'm about to have a brand new KA! I'm very excited though it's so bittersweet as I'm so upset about letting my current one go. Especially as it'll have to be [size=1]scrapped[/size]!! Anyone else feel as close as I do to a lump of metal??! Or am I the only mad one! :rolleyes:

My husband doesn't get it! He's also doing the scrappage thing, chopping in his Chrysler Voyager for a new fiesta. [/size]

It's a T reg. Turbo Diesel. 140,000 miles on the clock!

Lovely car but it has it's problems, electrical faults mainly and seems to start only when it wants too (not today in the cold)! Bodywork in excellent nick and leather seats all good.

I think it's too good be be scrapped personally but it's in the category! I feel the same about mine really!

It's a case of both cars will cost so much to get back to how they should be it's not longer worth it.

Glad it's not just me who gets silly about cars!!!
