The Day Has Finally Arrived!!!!

Well after many years of wishing, dreaming and wanting to own a Tickford vehicle, today is the day. :s5 :s5 :s5

I am so rapt it's not funny. Being the first car i actually bought. Still hasn't sunken in fully that i'm actually about to own this car and finally finally i get to be with the Tickford car club in pride.

I must admit i've sort of kept everyone in the dark lately bout whats going on. But naturally i prefered to keep it low key until the day arrived thus disguising it as "The Next Project". :s6:

Ok i suppose you all are dieing to know what car it is. Firstly I chose beauty over power so alas it's not a V8. But after a drive i really really fell in love with the car.
She's a Venom Red AUII XR6 HP Manual. I will pick her up on Friday arvo whilst surrendering the ELStock. So a nice detail for her on saturday and a cruise here i come.

Also would like to say that Uncle Geoff, Happy Jack and their team at Ford/Tickford have done really really well with the package of the AUII in style, performance and drivers appeal to the car.
I really really can see Ford getting back to the Number 1 spot in Australia soon. And lastly fordforums australia have made stick to the blue oval passion.

Well got heaps more things to say but i can't think of em at the moment as i'm grinning from ear to ear about this car.
Hmmm now about my nick on fordforums.

Congrats mate. I'm sure you'll get years of happy kilometres out of it even if it is missing a couple of cylinders

"Hey look, someone straightened the engine and cut two cylinders off"

Just jokes. Congratulations on your new purchase. All the stress and screwing around is worth it once you have your ass planted in the drivers seat of that baby.:s5

There are only 2 states to be in:
Western Australia, and pissed.

sensational stuff mate. i hope you get many happy miles out of it.

i know i love driving mine (yes...even more than the fiesta), i am sure you will feel the same way.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
