Lol, you can give it whatever name you want :)

I went for the name "Marty" for a few main reasons:

1) Marty McFly from Back to the Future - Technological Delorian - Mine has technology pack (but no Time Flux Capaciter!)
2) Marty - Male name - body kit / wheels make it butcher than the 'normal' fiesta, don't think a girls name would suit it, specailly in sea gray
3) Sea gray Shark - Colour obvs makes it Sea Gray,
4) Shark - not only does the Sea Gray reference tie in, but it also reminds me of a shark with that low front lip and large grill like a sharks mouth, and the headlights looking like a sharks peircing eyes!

Marty, the Sea Gray Shark!

Also think the name "Marty" suits the style of the car to a tea :)

lol, done a total now of just over 110 :)

Took it for a drive with my dad down some nice roads towards ironbridge, and it realy shows its potential.

I'm trying to keep the rev's fairly limited (below 4000) for the first 500 miles, and breaking hard to a minium too.

But you can tell from the precision steering and light wheel that its best attribute is its ability to handel at all different speeds! That said, it is going to take some getting used to when driving over potholes etc as its a lot more twitchy (responsive) than my old car!

Either way, chuffed to bits with it, as is the whole family and everyone about too :)

Infact, call me a show off, but im going to drive past my old school today at "lunch" to see what reactions I can get.

Already had the #1 under 21's womens netball team say how "fit" it was and sat in it, not to mention my neighbours all coming round to admire it :)

And you wonder why I wanted a Fiesta? lol. :D
