Post subject:  End of an era

Well guys it's an end of an era for me as the fiesta goes to its new home today

I started building the car in march 2003 with a budget of £2000 and almost ten years later and countless ££££s later and a lot of good and bad times it's going to its new owner

I've thoroughly enjoyed my time with the car and enjoyed sharing all my experiences with the website and it's users

I really think there may be a wee tear I'm my eye tomorrow when it's dropped off today

I've spent all day today checking over the car and cleaning it and do some small repairs to it for the new owner so that he can have a trouble free ownership of the car

SO out with the old and in with the new as the new car is almost finished now

Big shame its going but nearly 10years youve certainly had your use and made it famous in the ford world, heres to another 10 years in the focus which im sure will become just as popular. You should tell the new owner to sign up here so we can all see its progress.

Looks like shes got another good home mate.

And by the amount of beer stacked up there, there will be plenty work going on :)

My missus is away the weekend of the 27th or I'd have popped down for a looksie!!
