    “Do you have any memories to share about the Ford Fiesta? Feel free to reminisce in the comments section below.”

    I remember way back in 2009 when I first saw the WS Fiesta, and thought “what a beauty”. That was back in the day when petrol was really expensive and the US was going under.

      Ahhh, back in the day when we burnt fossil fuels to get around…. good times.

    I remember renting Fiestas in the UK 10 years ago and thinking it was crazy that such a great handling car was not available in Australia at the time. This was the model shown with the British P557 number plate, that was also rebadged as a Mazda 121 in Europe.

    I wonder if the Festiva will be notching up any milestones soon…

    Memories of a Fiesta? Well, the fiancee and I used to have an ’09 Zetec as our daily driver (sold it a couple of months ago for a Focus XR5), and… to be honest, what I felt was a little bit of sadness every time I drove it – because here was a truly all-round brilliant little car, and I was convinced that the vast majority of its drivers would never fully appreciate how well sorted it was. A great car, and still miss it sometimes.

    Lolwut?!? CA, there’s not much to reminisce about, considering we’ve only had the Fiesta in the Australian market for the last 7 years.

      Lots of British Ex Pats in Australia who likely have memories from home about the Fiesta

    That Mk1 is a dainty little thing and still looks perfect today. I remember picking up a WHEELS magazine in my early teens wondering if Ford would ever get around the import quotas we had then.

    They couldn’t, but it’s nice to see the current one finally doing well in Australia.

  • Tommy

    Wow the first gen looks great. How fugly it is now.

    • Nick

      You have horrible taste.

      Stop letting nostalgia cloud your judgment.
