Coming back from a weekend camping in Wales, back in April.

Coming down a country lane (within the speed limit - was 50mph) came to a left hand bend, on the exit to my surprise was a set off traffic lights with stationary traffic. Wheels locked up on the tarmac (lesson learnt - dont use sh*t tyres), had to swerve to my left on the grass verge to avoid hitting someone else (could do without it on my insurance) Had no traction on the grass and went straight into the signpost by this time i must have slowed down to about 20mph? Nothing major, managed to drive back to Manchester in this conditon.....

Well done for getting that turned around, is colour match a bit off though?

Ordered the real ford radiant red in 2K. That picture was the day after it had been painted so hadn't had chance to G3 it, the original colour on the doors had faded, that soon got sorted.

Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol
