Greetings all!

First i bought an '89G Sierra from a scrapyard. It was trashed, but I only wanted the running gear to use in a kit car I was planning to build. Found out the 2.0DOHC engine was pretty much useless so that went on eBay, whereupon I bought...

A '94L Mondeo estate for 185. Cost 75 in petrol to pick it up and trailer it home where that got stripped and sold off too (made all my money back) and kept the 2.0 Zetec engine to use in my Dax Rush kit car.

It wasn't until July 2011 that I bought the first Ford I could actually drive! It's a 60-Plate Mondeo Estate in Panther Black and Titanuim X trim. 163BHP TDCi with Powershift auto gearbox. Goes well!

And the kit car?? Well, that's still in the garage in a state of build... One of these days it'll be finished.

I hope.
