A digital misfit

For sale, Ford Sierra, one careless owner

This poor thing survived my time in London and came with me to Oxford. It blew an engine, which I suspect was caused by a botched cambelt change (by a main dealer, no less) but could not prove. This had the weird symptom of being fine all the time the revs were over 4k, but let it drop and it would stall. That made for a particularly interesting journey through Nottingham city centre.

The second block sprang an oil leak that was utterly insatiable and eventually led to its demise.
