Still doing the 'car I learned to drive manual in' thing? I'll play. It was also the first car I drove; a brand new blue 2000 Focus 5-door hatch turbodiesel, a car with a brake and clutch pedal on the passenger side as well as it was owned by a driving school.
A burner shitstorm on the FP!
What kind of new years eve customs do you guys have? In the Netherlands many people buy lots of fireworks. Sadly some people, mostly teenagers, are not able to handle the responsibly, as is demonstrated by exhibit A: a Renault Megane convertible that's probably ready for the dismantler now.

Total cost? €2.19 ($2.85) including shipping! It was a buy it now offer, so they intended this price from the start. I…
Identify the... bird? Bonus points for the car.
Where did the days go when a panel van had a very simple dash and some kind of long stick coming out of the floor that felt like a long spoon stirring through soup?
