Howdooooo :)

Sooooo this is my fiesta mk3 given to me by my grandad on my 17th Birthday :) Nowt Special Just a 1.1 hcs Azura......But it boasted only 13k on the clock and stored in a garage all its life.....So its free from the dreaded car cancer!!!!Over the past 4 years i have done numerous modifications biggest to date is definately the engine change....Short story on the donor Fsi....A chap listed it in a free ads collum as 1995 Fiesta 1.6 Si - Blown Headgasket.....Turns out It only has 33k on the clock....So i thought im gonna get this no matter what.....To cut this story short....the Fella didnt have the 1st idea about cars and value.....so i just came out with the 1st price in my head and made a cheeky £200 offer :P And :thumbsup: the rest is history :)

Before Putting the engine in i replaced as many things as i could think of doing.....Head Gasket kit (of Cors), Clutch, Cam Belt kit....Alll tensioner pulley's and crank pulley....New steering rack...new cat....new scorpion cat back exhaust.... :blahblah:

Through the winter this car is always stored in the garage......And in this time i hope to always make subtle changes :) Unfortunately late 2010 i found myself made redundant :( So no money has been spent......

Still to be done - 4-2-1 Manifold, St150 Brakes, Get Rs turbo Spoiler and Si Front Bumper with cossie bib sprayed, and 16" lenso bsx alloys :)

Me on the left age 6 next to my future car... Nawwwww!!

Would you say £40 Without tyres is a good price for a set of 15's?
