    I'm Tom from the Failsworth area in Manchester. Grabbed myself a liquid yellow 200 to daily and replace my first car a 07 ford fiesta zetec 1.2L a few weeks ago whilst my second car I bought in 2013 the MK1 Golf is in a million pieces in the garage. I stripped the Golf to go off to the body shop over a year ago now and due to this I've not been able to really enjoy going out and driving, the fiesta wasn't exactly a pocket rocket and after owning it for 5 years my love for it had all but burnt out.
    Drove all the way to Ktec Racing near Bournemouth from Manchester to pick her up and so far i'm loving it. Funnily enough the Liquid Yellow wasn't my first choice as I love the Storm Grey but after going and seeing the colour in person I was suprised at how nice it actually was and knew I had to have it in that colour. With the weather being nice I've took a few trips up into the peak district since then to stretch her legs and I can't fault it so far. I've always had a soft spot for the 197's which i worked on from time to time in my garage and decided the clio was the best bang for buck compared to other manufactures compirable vehicles.
    Also I've been seeing a liquid yellow 197 on my street in the New Moston area over the past week it's the F1 special edition so give me a shout if you're on here. I dabble in photography but I've not had a chance to take some decent pictures of the clio yet but I'll make sure to go and grab some this weekend to add here later. I'll throw a pic of my Golf in there for the sake of it as well.

    We ended up at the Holme Moss transmitter on woodhead road there is a car park just across from it you can stop at I should go back because it was a missed photo opportunity. Forgot to mention I’m working on the 197 at work at the moment that I was originally trying to buy for cheap because it needs work. Some good practice on the front end for when I inevitability have to change the steering arms or hub pivots haha.

    Still in a rolling shell condition at the moment waiting for its slot st the body shop. I’m just waiting on a corrado to be completed and then mine should be going in and I’ll finally have the room to start stripping the engine down. It’s slow progression but I’m willing to ride it out as the car was so fun to drive.
