Hi There

Just introducing myself - long time Ford fan and massive petrol head, live in Devon. Me and the wife have 7 cars between us, everything from a 1957 morris minor, several land rovers, an Evo X FQ300, and a BMW-based kit car / track machine.

I currently compete in our local road rally scene, possibly thinking about stage rallying in the future. I have a puma 1.7 for this which is an awesome car and she just keeps battling on through all the abuse, but after a decent run (including a finish in a Nat B 150mile night rally) she's getting a bit tired now, and so looking for something to replace it with at the end of the season (where hopefully I'll have finished at least runner up or possibly even champion in the novice categeory)

Quite like the idea of a mk5 Fiesta ST as they seem to be creeping into that price bracket now.

Wanted to look at the for sale section of this forum, but it won't let me unsure

Look forward to speaking to you all.

Steve

Sounds good, I bet they make a decent rally car.
A few come up for sale already built as rally cars, some are pretty expensive though. mk6 ST prices seem stable at the moment but I'm sure you could pick up a good one for under 2k.

Done it laugh

Gone and bought one. Pick it up later this week



2005 model, just less than 100k miles, although it's had a "new" engine recently as the famed bottom end problem reared its head apparently. Needed an MoT which consisted of a brake pipe and a tire, and a clutch which I picked up the test drive. Chap is very kindly doing it all for me and pick it up soon!


Looks fairly tidy underneath, no nasty crispy rusty bits and generally

Looking forward to getting it out on the lanes and onto the gravel.
