Happy Birthday Fiesta!

Yesterday marked 30yrs of Ford Fiesta production. I figured as it's a Ford UK car I'll post it here! Back then you could specify such extras as driver & passenger headrests, a reverse light, electronic washer jets and two speed front wipers!

I think it's done well to reach 30yrs old, I'm not sure it'll do another 30 years though!

Cliffy,

It's not just a UK car.(well, it didn't use to be) My buddy had one in high school that we dubbed the Ford Party Wagon.(yes, lame spanish reference - hey, we were in HS) That was back in the early '80s. Pure econo-box.

LOL....I know, I thought about that after typing it (I shoual use hobo's 'Think, Type, Submit' theory lol). The reason I said Ford UK was because main production was at Dagenham in Essex I believe!

So as long as I don't have anything to do w/ one, I don't really care.
