Making cut backs all in the bid to save for my dream classic Ford.

Made the derision too take the old girl off the road 1f641.png😞

Insurance and tax cancelled didn't really do this but right now need too focus on my prioritise mainly building up my savings this year.

Money management hasn't always been my strong point I'll be brutally honest I like too spend I like too travel food drink you name it I've done it all and always felt a bit guilty spending so much and thinking damn I needed that in there.

So taking big cut backs mainly how much fuel I use a week and keeping shows and events too a minimum this year.

It sucks I know but will be worth it in the end.

She's been a great motor and always got me home from the longest trips.

She's done me proud.

I love this damn thing I really do.

Took her for a last drive today just too see if I still want too keep her here.

Do you know what

I can't let this go

its been 30mins already and I'm sad of the fact I can't use it on the road. 1f641.png😞

But who knows what will happen won't bore you worth the details as anything can change I do have ideas on the pipe line, but again wait and see what I'll do.

All this too save for my dream classic ford.

Just going through some photos of the shows I went too last year with the Ford Probe and I remembered I saw a Granada Ghia 3.0 V6 at castle classics Newcastle area.

On the day I spoke too the owner and even got too sit in it, While busy admiring the dashboard interior exterior The lovely steering wheel.

That's when I knew that is was the car that I wanted too own.
I might have been a bit late getting my savings up as they say better late then never.

My dream car and my number objective.

In my eyes this was car of the show.

ST first as they’re getting cheap, plus a bit more comfy as will be a daily. Once I’ve got a good job and a decent daily then the RS will definitely be in the garage as a weekend toy.

With me I first have to get a full time job. Never experienced working full time yet due to uni. I think though I'll have to save up for a property first before I can think about a nice car. Hopefully will take around 2 years to save for a deposit if say I was earning around £20k and restricting myself to spending £50 a month (excluding car insurance and running). I'd put the house on rent as there's no point living alone in a house and put the rent money towards the mortgage so hopefully when I do move in (possibly when married) the monthly mortgage will hopefully be a little less. 

After getting the house (and hopefully still single 😂) might save up again like I did and get something nice and fast like a audi RS6. Insurance hopefully will be cheaper then where I was quoted £1600 for one saying I'm a 26 year old with 9 years nc compared to now which is £5000.
