The former seven series making up the Mondeo range, Ford say, will be simplified to five with the new Zetec Edition becoming the entry level Mondeo, now priced at £19,445. Pretty good I reckon.

What Can You Buy For £1000? Cheating The Game

In parts 1 and 2 of this ongoing series I’ve previously looked at the surprising array of cars on offer for both £200 and £500 and noted something of the issues involved when buying at the less monied end of the spectrum, indeed, the range of vehicles on offer really should mean that there’s something for everyone, even in the bargain bucket. Yet it really does depend on your motives and expectations as for me, part of the fun is in the search, after all, for £200 and £500 you really can’t afford to set your heart on one particular … Continue reading What Can You Buy For £1000?

Yamaha TDM 850: Two Sides To Every Story

The following is a re-edit of a piece posted by MotorMartin on DriveTribe under the I Love Motorbikes banner run by Tony Yates, perhaps better known as @Xinterceptor. There was a time in the early nineties when it appeared that motorcycle design and engineering was stagnating.
