Carlisle have just had its first Auto show and I was in the presence of a beautiful Ascona 400 owned by someone in Barrow, I have had this very same car as my screen saver for ages. I also learnt about the sad passing of someone I knew years ago having bought and sold Manta's and Commodores to help convert that dream of that 400. R.I.P Drew
Having always been a one for being different when people were going down the mk2 Escort route, I had the Manta's and Ascona's, always wanting the Rothmans liveried 400 replicas but married life came first.
Midlife life crisis ensued and Fords become more readily available and accessible, I had an XR4i, selling that for my XR3 that i've owned for 6 years. 2nd marriage and a shared interest in cars has seen me add to the portfolio with another XR4i and a mk5 Zetec S, yes I know this seems very Ford related but I now have the space to extend and try and get back to what I would love and that's the 400 Replica.
I'm looking forward to renewing my relationship with the marque and continue with my mid life crisis and hopefully own such machine.
