The Friday Five

Another somewhat sucky one that I’ve had to change slightly to fit my circumstances.

1. What vehicle do you your parents drive?

Photograph of a Ford Focus Zetec 1.6 A metallic silver Ford Focus Zetec 1.6. The one shown in the image is almost like ours except we have 4 doors rather than 2.

2. How long have you your parents had it?

Since December 2002. It replaced a red Renault Megane Scenic RT 1.6 which we’d had for four years, however it basically died on us so we needed a new car :).

3. What is the coolest feature on your your parents’ vehicle?

The engine. Being a Zetec it accelerates pretty quickly and can cruise well at 70mph. Fuel economy isn’t bad either – it’s not a particularly thirsty car.

4. What is the most annoying thing about your your parents’ vehicle?

No sunroof.

5. If money were no object, what vehicle would you be driving right now?

Although I don’t personally own a car, don’t hold a license to drive one nor have ever attempted to learn, I really like the Smart car. Okay, so it’s only a two-seater and isn’t practical for long distance driving, but it’s cheap to buy, cheap to run, easy to park and you get really nasty looks when you overtake BMWs on the M62 :-D.
As for my parents, my dad probably wouldn’t mind a Jaguar or an Aston Martin. As far as I know my mum is fine with the Focus.
