Without sound like a total Tard here.

Allow myself, to introduce err.. umm.. myself!!

I just recently purchased a brand spanking new SES Duratec. (only 10 miles)

It's actually my first brand new car!! I had a gen 1, 1990 I think. That finally rolled over and croaked after 225,000 miles!! NO KIDDING.

Although, I bought it with 165000.

Any who, here's my new ride

MSRP 23,500

Paid: 16,500 (salesman didn't get jack!!)

Sadly, I won't see it for 2 monthes, and am forced to continue to drive my 98 Malibu that cost me over 2 grand in repairs in last 4 monthes.

YUP, it sure is.

I think the closest size would be the Mondeo (contour)

I'll try and get some good pics for you fellas, like parked next Big Ben, Parliament, Thames River, Buckingham palace, or something like that.

Any suggestions for a name?

I had a friend of mine say it looked similar to the mafia car in GTA3.

Was done in Iowa. England doesn't have a stipulation.

Ah i see... Well you are lucky England has no rules for tint.. because it can be a hassle spending all that money on tint to have to remove it after getting a ticket

Nah, the roads suck over here.


No need to get nice rims and springs to just trash them.


I'll wait till I get back stateside.
