98se, 2k, 7 all great improvements functionally. 95, what a huge massive achievement. I mean really lots of people must have spent many a night sleeping on couches for that one.

@Kilgore89 I think you missed the point and I'm not sure why you put quotations around the word "mechanic". Technician... is that better?
I too am a BMW technician, that`s how I know him. We can handle anything a "Ford" tries to throw at us, we just don`t want to. He knew exactly what was needed to fix the vehicle. It requires lifting the body off the frame to do major engine work. Instead, he purchased an extended warranty and had some other sucker do the work. Turned out to be cheaper in the long run.

@Kegomatix: It's been there since 1996, that pic is a few years old, actually. There`s 6-8 more bullet holes and an axe attack in the windscreen now (not joking). It has "terminal" rust which is why it got parked in the first place. Some parts of it are excellent! Others? Missing
I loved all my VWs! A Beetle, 3x Type 3s (Sedan, Fastback and Station Wagon!), 2 vans. I loved fixing them, driving them, freezing my arse off every winter!! Ever scrape ice off the INSIDE of your windows?
I only tease about Fords, some are crappy but others are excellent! Just like every other car maker.
I had an Aunt who put 300K miles on her first VW Van and 200K on her second one
I had another Aunt who owned every crap-tastic Ford ever! She`d leave them in the ditch when they broke down!
