Ok so a 4 hour round trip and a panic for tax and I have a ZS.

So I went checked the car out. few bits and bobs here and there. No service history. Was a bit weary. Got £200 off the price and just thought fine i'll go for it. Half way through the phone call to the insurance and I thought "shit! no tax" so this guy flies to the post office with literally 1 minuite to spare before closing and i had to fork out for tax :banghead:

But here it is, only one picture as i'm on my break at work and i'm working all day and tommorow.

Its a 2000 Zetec s 1.6 in Silver. Mint condition underneath. Only a small patch of bubble on one rear arch. Mint tyres. No kurbing on the alloys. and the engine runs sweet as a nut at only 60,000 miles.

I'm suprised at how much pull and power it does have, its a really quick little car, had some fun with a corrado last night and kept up with it all the way down the road while it was spitting flames :chill:

Image

Plans are to pay for it :P I owe my Grandad the money at the moment so thats a couple months away. Might just upgrade the speakers put my subwoofer in, tint the rears and maybe the headlights like paul did with the flyeyes. not sure how it would look though.

The only thing it really needs it lowering, so that'll be first on the list in a couple months time. But I don't want to molest this car too much or ragg it around day and night, its a really clean example and mint underneath it only did 4000 miles this year and flew through MOT with only the ABS sensor fault which has been fixed.

Don't really know what else to say, I love it :D Comment welcome! More pics to come :)

What rust? :D theres like a smaller than 5p bit on the passenger door, a 5p bit on the passenger rear sus turret, and a little minute bit of bubbling on the rear arch. I'll take pics. The underneath is SOLID its a mint shell.

Definately needs a little lowering.. Want to save for some coilovers and lower it lots :)

Oh and I have to pay out for a service and cambelt come payday tommorow. take it to my mates garage ASAP. Just incase.. get all the fluids changed etc. As it came with no history better start one up! anyone know where I get a service book?

Yeah thats the only bits of rust at the mo, Not a lot I can do with the rust but get charged a fortune at a body shop I guess. I will get all those imperfections done probably.. But it won't be for a little while as I have to pay off the car first and maintain it. It will get sorted though don't worry! Rust always comes back anyway :(
