Today somebody from a local garage came and took the Focus away (got £100 for it which wasn't too bad), but the good news is that the engine will be put into another Focus to keep it on the road.
Even I could see that the car as a whole was not worth repairing, but there certainly were usable parts in it and the engine was one despite having 187,000 miles on it (that's what regular oil changes get you).
Unfortunately the Fiesta will also be getting sold as we've had some problems from the council, as it is parked in a council car park for residents (which we are!), but apparently unless it is insured they cannot allow it to stay, and without spending £300-400 it won't pass an MOT and therefore cannot be insured.
Overall it is a pretty depressing weekend Ford-wise, but what else can I do.
