      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. So impressed.

    I was so impressed by 'Tractor Car' a Tddi estate that when I knew the MOT was near I swapped it in for 'Moon Car' a TDCi. Two years of driving these amazing cars cost me a total of a battery, a hose and about £500 quids. Tractor Car was MOT'd by the new owner about two weeks ago. Moon Car has done 270,000 miles (to the Moon and back) and drives like an old pony who knows it's way. I gave Moon Car to my son the other day and bought an old 55 reg Focus estate which also looks rather tidy. My first car was a 73 mark 3 Cortina. My first date was 150 miles away but I had to do the alternator that morning. I remember not holding his hand because I was embarrassed my hands were oily. So, years, British and American and Japanese bikes later, plus two children who both have Fords - and my Grandad who fought the war was a Ford Mech. And, I've read Brave New World! Classics, I've had a few, Moggie Minor for certain. I knew what I could do with one. It wasn't called Genevieve but I used to be able to put it back together at the side of the road. Now I've got a 55 (not the Harley I've always dreamed of) Focus estate. I'm doing good! Wish I had my M reg Mark 3 Cortina back, like all my old cars. That 1973 OHC light blue 1600 was, and is, still the newest car I've ever owned.
