My second car, (the first car I bought), was a 1985 Fiesta 1000cc. Bit of a dog, but the insurance was pretty good and it made me alot of money while I had it, (I DJ so I had alot of **** to lug), bought it for 120, sold it for 120. Looking back I would of got a slightly bigger engine 1.1 or somthing.

If you've got the cash get a Micra, (bubble shaped one), they're really good on the insurance, and quite nippy, (1.3s are quite quickish), and all engine configurations are supposed to be really strong. I know there's not much modding potential, but you can make them look pretty good, there's a black one going 'round upton way, with pimp tints, some nice wheels, and angry looking headlights that looks pretty sweet!

Go cheap, go french.

You can pick up a 106, AX or saxo for dirt cheap. The are quick, easy to maintain and fun to drive.

Oi <img border="0" alt="[cwrumad]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions050.gif" /> ive got a ka and i aint a girl! i know it aint the fastest car money can buy, but its reliable, good lookin, cheapish to insure, its great round corners and for country lane blasting <img border="0" alt="[cwsmokin]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions036.gif" />
ive seen some that have had their standard 1.3's swapped for: 1.7 puma's, 1.6 turbo CVH's and the maddest so far a turbo'd 2litre zetec.
not so gurly now eh? laugh
