You can hear a Ka coming from a mile away, those little Endura-E pushrod engines tick like a bag full of nails, every single one of them!

Hi,
The KA is a great choice to have as a first car.

Not this one, it has the better Duratec engine. And its a great little engine with loads of torque for a 1.3 :)

My son had a Corsa 1.2 which is a bit more of a lads car. IMO the Ka goes and handles better than the Corsa :drive:

The Fiesta ST is a future classic imo, as the XR2 is/was.....Providing the lads today don't write them all off :lol:

The Mrs has a 1.6 Petrol Focus Zetec, good cars although a bit boring.....

I agree the ST's will be a future classic.... Most will get written off so the ones that survive will become collectable. The Focus Zetecs are a little boring but good reliable work horses :D

You don't see many Datsun's around now, I bet one of those would be worth a small fortune now!

Hi Neil.

Great news your daughter has passed her driving test mate and has joined the Blue Oval Club :applaud:

Ermmm....I presume her KA has a 'Blue' Oval rather than a 'pink/purple' one :lol:

All the best
