Hello from a new 214 Cabbie owner

#1 Post by bodie37 » Mon May 21, 2012 1:06 pm

Hi there

Thought I would introduce myself. My name is Stuart and I live near Ashby de la Zouch in Leicestershire. A few years ago I started doing my own servicing on mine and the wifes car. Really enjoyed it but wanted a car to tinker with that did'nt need to be used all the time. I've always wanted a softop and have always like the design of the old wedge 200. So this weekend I went and bought one a '94 214 in red.

Poor thing needs some TLC and too me its the perfect car to learn on as well. Had the roof down and loved it (bloody cold mind). My '07 Mondeo might be better car but do I drive it with a big grin on my face NO.

Looking forward to my 214 journey and will no doubt need to advice and help along the way!

Welcome to the forum.

I have a 214 cabriolet too, although mine is my daily driver!
