How Long Have You Owned A Ford?

49 posts in this topic

How long have you owned a Ford? I reckon I've had mine going on seven years now. I'm not sure, I've lost all insurance details and information for the car, and there's a possibility it was stolen in the first place. I'm also going blind in my left eye and tend to trail off topic randomly in long conversations. Did you guys see that movie last night?

Anyways, going back to my original topic. Can anyone suggest a good eye surgeon, or should I just take the thing out with a spoon?

I have had fords for 11 years. But, I am being really tempted to the dark side called the Fiat 500.

Had a G reg 1.1 fiesta for 6 years, only thing that ever went on it was the stearing coupling, turned to the dark side ( a vauxhall cavalier 1.7 TD for about 5 years ) and came back to a 1.4 fiesta zetec 1.4 last year...hope it's as good as the first one! * ok ok i only did it for the cheaper road tax*

I learnt to drive in my Mum's Ford Anglia way back in 73 and since then I have had an Escort 1300 GT Mk 1; Cortina Mk 2;

Escort van (got a job as a sales rep for a tv rental firm and that was my company vehicle); Escort estate; Fiesta 1100L; Cortina Mk

5; Escort XR3i; Fiesta XR2; Escort RS Turbo; Orion Inj Ghia; Escort XR3i cabriolet.

I've had a bit of a break just recently but now back with a vengeance as my other half Janet's on her second Ka---soon she will get her

third one--a beautiful black Sportka--something she has always wanted!

And very shortly I'll be back in Henry's club as I have a brand new Fiesta on order! B) :D

First one I owned was a Zodiac in 1960. Tokk an hour just to polish the chrome and did nearly 18mpg. I have a Mony V6 Ghia x now with Granadas, escorts and Cortinas in between. Oh! and a Vauxhall 101 :(

First car was a Mk2 Fiesta, which I owned for 8 months in 1994. Sold that when I bought my house in 1995. Had a break till 2003 when I bought a Mondeo TDi which I kept till 2004. Then I got my current Focus TDDi in June 2004.
