Hello every one...my name is Lana & im from worthing in west sussex.

Im the very proud owner of a Ford Escort 1.8 gti 1998

I have owned my car for around 7 years now,it may be old but to me its GOLD!

Im often told by family members & friends to get rid & get a new car,but to be honest its my baby..i know the car too well & the car seems to know me too :-)

I also have problems with cars fitting me as im only 4ft 11inches tall (i cant drive any car) so with the aid of an adult booster...we fit each other perfectly.

Being the age it is the car now seems to be experiencing more & more problems but i suppose this is to be expected & this is why ive decided to join this site...you all seem like a really friendly bunch..willing to help out with advice when needed,which is lovely.

My son is learning mechanics so does most of the work that needs doing when the car goes wrong.He is excellent at removing & replacing broken parts (photographic memory) but still needs help on diagnosing problems...My late brother was also a mechanic/welder (self taught) he could diagnose a problem by driving or listening to the engine...my son isnt quite there yet but fingers crossed he will get there soon.

Thank you for taking the time to read my introduction,i look forward to getting to know some/most/all of you :-)
