So I was on holiday in Menorca earlier this month, and while I was out there I spotted a few fords here and there, so thought it would be rude not to take a few snaps :D :lol:

Also a couple of other vehicles of interest...

Love looking at different car cultures when on holiday, and how cars differ from the factory from one country to the next...

Pics:

Dont think these were available in the uk?

Tasteful I thought:

RS Accessory rear spoiler!

Note the rear pop outs on a pov spec:

Image

Heavily accessorised/valuable!

Image

Image

Dacia Sandaro!!!!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol:

Image

Rare/Nice:

They did do the focus saloon over here but they wernt popular.

They remind me of Terry, Ugly as sin and serve no real purpose.
