Re: Wow. Check out how much this transit sold for...

These prices go to show not everyone is feeling the current economic squeeze. Could have been bought by dealers I suppose as this one sold for £21375 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/125613632565?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20180816085401%26meid%3Df75bb65a7f9...

Re: Post Edit?

If we all 'play nicely' then editing shouldn't be a problem. Good move. We always play nicely here! It's good to know that our spelling errors are not preserved for eternity too! :D Andrew. :agree: I noticed this recently but didn't think too much about it, the edit is always andy :sorry: handy :)

That's a good shout that is Andy. And she did appear in an episode of Kate.
Was a regular in the To the Manor Born
You are right, I knew the face but her name didn't mean a thing to me.

To commemorate the end of the Fiesta, here is the end of a Fiesta. :D https://i.postimg.cc/nr4BtKYq/Ford-Fiesta-Mk1-4.jpg Andrew. That has the XR2 exhaust, it should be a 'pea shooter' like this Ford-Fiesta-Mk1-Supersport-SLR405W-99.jpg I agree the Mk1 was something special but anything else I'm no...

Re: Tailgate Struts

Well Tickover have been really good and as these come with a 12 month guarantee have sent out a replacement pair. He did explain how rare it is to have an issue so am hoping I've just been unlucky and the new ones will be fine. Thumbs up for Tickover. Great news Paul :cool: Do you have to return th...

Re: Tailgate Struts

Hi Tom, how are your replacement struts? Mine have become very weak. When I first fitted them they opened the tailgate with a positive 'whoosh' and would actually hold the tailgate up at various angles. But now, they creak and groan a little and have become a lot weaker and will only hold the tailg...

Nice :cheers: A mate has just bought a Mk8 Fiesta ST, apparently it goes like stink. He has an orange 2017 Focus ST too (although diesel still goes well). Surprised how big the Fiesta is, nearly the size of the earlier Focus! Everything is so high/tall now it makes the likes of a Capri look tiny in ...

Re: Matthewsons Sales Pitches

Tyres are easily replaced, rust is not. Buying anything that is rust free or at least only surface corrosion is a lot easier to remedy. If you can buy any car that is 40 plus years old with only mechanical issues it has to be the better option over a car full of holes and filler. Yes I'm aware thay...
