Fords are very reliable. Plus, you an easily get spares for them because they are just so polular. Mine's really cheap to run because it's a 1L (yeah, I get to the end of the road and I have to fill her up again! Just jesting...), and the insurane is only £600 even though I'm on provisional.

So yeah, IMO, Fords are very reliable and easy/cheap to run. Plus, the older one are just so uncool that I never get any trouble with it. No-one wants to touch it!

As for buying a moped, they are much muh cheaper and easier, but I'd advise driving first as you are likely to know where the dangers are when you're on a moped afterwards. Coming from experience there, I was not able to predict certain dangerous/dodgy situations as a motorcycle rider (before driving) but I'm now far more aware now that I do drive.

BTW, El Chueco probably doesnt earn that much! He just has parents that can afford to give him wicked cars like me.
