If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Today's thing now rarely seen

A fancy thing too.

Not just a 1978 Fiesta Mk1, but a 1.1 Ghia. That’s fancy. Not only the 1100 engine but Ghia accoutrements like alloys, tinted glass, chrome around the windows, a rear wiper, head restraints and rubber inserts in the bumpers. Oh, and a reversing light. You didn’t get that on cheap economy Fiestas.

Still had manual windows, manual locks, four gears, manual steering, manual choke....fancy Ghia trim didn’t go very far 41 years ago.
