So I've just brought myself a 1998 Ford Fiesta 1.4 Ghia. It's a great little car but not in as good condition as I first thought:/ I'm afraid i already have lots of problems i need help sorting but perhaps I can help all of you with some things too.

Have something to contribute?

Thanks! Nope this is my first, started out with a polo a year ago and now fancied a change. My dad's had several mondeo's and I figure I can't really go wrong.

50 cars?!? That's impressive, how'd you manage that?

Hiya, I started out with the 2003 Zetec then I had the 2006 Fiesta Ghia, then got rid of it for the 2009 Titanium. I much prefered my old Ghia, missed it so much and didn't like the titanium because of the fact I loved my Ghia so much. Replaced the Titanium for my ST500 and am very happy now. Happy Ford driving :) And happy forum posting :)

In my first years of driving I used to change the car every 3 months or so as I used to get bored very quickly. In later years I used to have two cars and a motorbbike, but still changed them regularly. Its only in the last few years when I started buying cars from new that I couldn't afford to live like that, plus I really like my current car so will attempt to keep it.

Good luck
