The Mark 1 Ford Fiesta is without doubt the best car that I have ever owned. I have owned many cars, but never one as old as this.
The car was purchased for £300 with a new exhaust and tyres. I have owned it for about a year and it has never let me down, I have travelled all over the UK in it, I even went half way across the country with three people in. This might not sound too amazing until you take into consideration the fact that it is only a 1100cc engine equipped with a four speed gearbox and 12 inch wheels.
The car starts everyday first turn of the key and runs (with careful throttle control) without the choke - even in the freezing cold.
It had the sills and front valance replaced before I bought it so it looks a bit scraggy, but I wouldn't swap it for anything, especially taking into consideration the fact that I don't owe a penny on finance and I have a more reliable car than many people get after spending thousands.
