      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    It seems to me that English people, before the influx of German and Japanese cars, were either Ford people or Vauxhall people.  My dad was a Ford man, both my brothers had Fords and my first and fourth cars were Fords - a MkV Cortina and a. MkV Escort convertible.  I was once forced to have a Vauxhall (company car with no choice involved) and it was horrible.  After a few Audis, a Saab convertible, a Skoda Superb (great) and a Mercedes SLK, I'm back with a Ford.
     
    Having been without a car for a year (when I handed the SLK back to Mercedes Benz finance after the 3 year lease was up), my wife has bought me a 2009 Ford Focus CC-3.  I'm a lucky man, although I did buy her a far newer and more expensive car two years ago before falling ill.
     
    I'm now looking forward to enjoying the new drive.
     
    So far, one week into ownership, I haven't driven it with the roof up!
