cool Time to say Goodbye

Well it has happened.

After 2 years of proud e-series ownership, i have today signed the papers over on my trusty `ol gal.

She is being traded, and hopefully picked up tomorrow once the finance all gets thru in the morning, on a nice spanking new ST170.

Took it for a couple of test drives this morning, all seemed well, paperwork all looked good, prices were right, so looks like i will have to forgoe the broadband to pay for it, but oh such a shame, rather have a new car anyday i think

Just thought i would share this with you all

Hopefully by this time tomorow night, i will be a proud new parent hehe yey !

Thanks for listening to the ranble

Cheers

Chris

Is that the 5.0 V8 crate motor, rear wheel drive version they do in the states? Wouldn't that be great. Not having that option in Aus, though, the ST170 has to be the pick of the Focus bunch!
