|Notes:||Heard about the Drive Archive on Steve Wright in the afternoon on BBC Radio 2 and loved the idea.|
|Notes:||Bought from a fellow Ford Probe fan, who had bought it for his wife. Lovely car, clean, tidy and fully loaded, with black leather, cruise control, electric sun roof etc. Plenty of poke and not THAT bad on fuel considering. Initially, I struggled to see the benefits of the harder, lower suspension over the slightly softer 16v Probe I owned previously, but a lovely clear Summer evening drive from Falmouth to Redruth on a perfectly clear road soon showed me the light.
Huge boot and a stainless exhaust that was just loud enough.
The only real problem was that if you parked with the nose pointing downhill and it rained, the sunroof would fill with water, as the driver's side drainhole must have been blocked. When you pulled forward, you had a soaking every time... Never could find what was blocking that...
