    The car looks ancient - wouldn't be surprised if the lappy wasn't worth more than the car

    Any idea what it is XTR??

    definitely not a meastro - dad's got a montego; virtually the same.

    I could see Zak being right.

    Initial reaction was Mini - the dash and colum certainly look like it. But the doors got Quarter lights and looks mk2 fiesta'ish.

    Gear lever looks like standard issue ford stuff too, and the fuse box is certainly in the right location for mk2 fiesta. Steering wheel too....

    I'm 99% it's mk2 fiesta

    I'd say it was a Mk2 fiesta. Hope he's uprated the security.
    I own a PC that changes regularly, so I don't bother putting anything in here...
