    My parents used to own an old Ford Mondeo.

    Exactly this color. The rear bumper was cracked, so we bought another one that wasn't even painted.
    I kinda liked it, but I know my dad hated it because his previous car was a Citroën XM which he loved :p
    We sold it a long time ago, but it was a nice car as far as I can remember.

    My mums first (and second) cars were Ford Fiestas, my dad and mum have had countless S-max/Mondeo/Fiesta company cars, I've got lots of toy Fords and the second car my family owned after I was born was a 2004 Ford Focus C-Max (First car were an Audi A3 and a BMW 3-Series Estate) and my mum had a 2012 C-Max company car (which we got on my birthday:)) but she hated it (too slow, she then popped the tyre on a curb and scraped the left-hand side twice). Then she had a 2014-2015(can't remember the exact year) Ford B-Max and she was rear-ended twice- first by a 52 plate (2002) Mercedes and then a 59 plate (2009) Alfa.
    Also a deer "sat" on the bonnet of my dad's 2008ish Ford Mondeo (it was new) and it was almost a write off. Also he wrote off a '06 Fiesta hire car with 100 km on it after hitting black ice (and the central barrier).
    He also had a rust-coloured brand new Mondeo (in the mid 2000's),

    How about the soon to be new Bronco? What are your guys' thought on it?

    I think it looks cool, but it won't have that old bronco feel to it.

    I believe that is not an official render of the 2020 Bronco, though if Ford adopted that design, the new Bronco would be awesome IMO.

    I've come across some articles about test mules already being spotted, though they are based on the Everest. However, Ford has confirmed that the Bronco is not going to be based on the Everest.

    Notice how only the front of the vehicle is covered? My guess is that they either used an Everest body to get it road worthy, or they may have decided not to show off a traditional full test mule version of the vehicle, probably to keep interest in the Bronco going.

    So far I speculate that there is a possibility that the new Bronco may end up sharing similarities with the Brazilian Troller T4. The company Troller is in fact a subsidiary of Ford Brazil, so I wouldn't be surprised if the 2020 Bronco had some of the T4's traits leaked into it. I'll guess we'll see what will happen when Ford reveals the Bronco in the near future.

    My 2015 Focus "S" (lower than the base model :/)

    The funniest part is it got to the dealer in mid 2014 but it never sold until mid 2016 because NOBODY WANTED IT.

    (Or they're just too stupid to drive a manual...)

    How about some Lincoln love?

    1995 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC
    MkVIII-RightSide.jpg MkVIII-Rear.jpg
    I bought this last winter for $900 and it's been my daily ever since. As far as I know, they made less than 5,000 of the LSC models in '95, and this is the only one I've seen in Garnet Red. In addition to the standard DOHC 4.6L, the LSC package includes a 2.25" true dual exhaust, 3.27:1 independent 8.8" rear end, stiffer sway bars and shocks, and perforated leather seats. The MSRP for this particular example was $41,000; talk about depreciation.

    I can't even begin to estimate how many SN95s and WRXs I've surprised with this car, it's a total sleeper.

    Currently, the only modifications are a single dual-in/dual-out muffler replacing the downstream cat, rear muffler delete, primary cat deletes (no emissions tests where I live), stock height Eibach coil spring conversion (originally 4-corner adaptive air suspension), J-modded 4R70W, Ford Racing ignition, K&N high flow filter with modified airbox and intake silencer delete, and an SCT chip with dyno tune (240 hp/259 lb-ft at the rear wheels).

    After I'm out of college I plan on doing a cylinder head swap from a junkyard '99-'02 Continental, installing a set of Kooks headers with 2.5" exhaust, and a 3.73:1 rear end with a TrakLok unit from a IRS Cobra.

    The 2015 F-150s crash test rating says otherwise...
