FTEfan's sort of FORD

Since Mazda is owned by Ford I thought I might sneak my old pride and joy into the showroom. It was a 1998 Mazda 121 Metro Shades with the big:rolleyes: 1.3L 16V SFI engine. It was a 5 speed as the last thing I could stand was the auto. It had power steer , air con, power mirrors, remote locking, tint, towbar, foglights, Cibie Oscar SC driving lights and later a CB radio was fitted. The colour under the dirt and mud was Excellent Green Mica which when I picked the car up looked almost black. BTW the 121 was also known as the FORD Festiva Miniwagon!

What's left

And this is what was left of it after it rolled 6 times for about 400m. I walked away unhurt.
