teething problems

Recommended Posts

how do all

right getting started with my last car which was a mondy st24 silver and mint half leather but sporty as f*ck loved it for the grand total of 3 weeks till that unfortunate dark wet evening of the 21/10/08 when i deceided it was a great idea to over take a honda civic!!!

what a tw*t!!! was pulling in front no problem untill i went to return to my rightfull place on the road (in front lol) when as soon as i turned the wheel to monuvre back in the back end spun (now i aint sure why but i will have to hold my hands up and say its my fault because i was driving) straight in to the corner of a wall which in turn sent me on another relaxing spin straight in to a barber shop window with a full on side impact which in turn sent me round again untill i ended up at a bus stop (best place for me eh!!! f*ck off) with in seconds the old bill was there and i was surounded by about 50 of the local !Removed! heads from the local pub great way to end the night eh.

well the car died that night god rest her soul on the back of a police assisted fam truck.

so moving on i went about 4 weeks with out a motor which !Removed! nearly killed me having to ask mates and family members for a lift even just to go round the shops when i saw a white mondeo 2.5i v6 si going cheap that was a sign from upstairs some where if ever there was one.

so a day of work followed and i went to have a look, now it wasn't only round the corner it was about an hour away so a mate of mine took me.

with the worlds sh*ttest satnav in hand we set off, now this satnav of my pals you couldnt put in a complete post code it would f*ck you off get over worked and die !!! great !!! so we had to put in the first half of the addy and hope for the best lol.

so an hour and a half later we got there and as soon as i pulled up i knew it was mine dont get me wrong it has its faults but that is just part of the charector.

i met the seller at his work place and the trampy b*stard hadn't even cleaned it!! it was filthy, plastic bags all over it bits of paper a full ashtray and hardly any fuel so it was the worlds shortest test drive, but i knew from the moment i pulled up it would be mine all it needs is a bit of love.

the negotiations well it was up for 950 but i got it for 775 so hope fully i have a good deal it has a few months t and t on it so gives me chance to sort out any problems before its next mot.

so i had the car and my pal that took me up was in a 3 series bmw 318i se following me back down to the motor way and as soon as we had cleared the traffic of the slip road i had to test the car out (new car bonding time) so i put my foot down and f*ck me it felt like i was doing about 50-55 mph when i looked in the rear view and my mate was a tiny dot in the back ground and i looked down at the speedo and i was doing 130 oops!!! better slow down had seen loads of police earlier.

well no trouble it was smooth as you like and felt great just to be behind the wheel of my own motor again.

dont get me wrong i know that it will cost me a few quid to finish it off and get it looking and handleing the way i want it to but its mine and i defo have the ford fever so will look forward to hopefully getting to know a few of you a bit better
