I often spend a lot of time thinking about cars; more of a pleasure than a chore when put to basic terms. Often my imagination gets vulnerable to flights of fancy, will mooch off on its own solidarity and device a stream of consciousness that will inexorably lead me to a missed deadline and a verbal warning from my peers. Whilst looking at the brand new Ford Fiesta 2013, my thoughts began to deviate on a slightly odd tangent.
