Here's the car in question!  :y

Shame about the colour, but I guess I could live with it.  :-\  Looks OK though?  ???  :y

Why does every 'classic car' get shod with bl**dy Minilite alloys?  ???

That's the spirit.  :y ;D

How far would I go for a car ? I might put up with a little groping, but there aint nobody putting nothin in my mouth, no matter what the car is.  :D ;D ;D

But we'd all go "all the way" for a Marina Coupe, natch. :-*

My daughter now earns considerably more than that in her current job, but  ....

I'd say that the vast majority of Joe Public don't though .....

and....?

and nothing ..... see post #13 

I don't do bad myself, but if I was on 180K I think I'd find it very hard to justify 240k

I can believe that, but if Joe Public were to read the link I posted, as you no do doubt have, he might have second thoughts, especially if he, innocently, found himself in court, represented by a white, public school educated barrister, with absolutely no idea how he lives, before a Judge from the same background, and possibly from the same public school.
Incidentally, if you were on 180k, in a public service job, e.g. a Judge, but colleagues you trained with who went in a different direction, were earning 3 times your salary, your public spiritedness might come under some pressure.
Yes, it is a lifestyle choice, as Al has said, but I maintain that we need to encourage those from 'working-class' backgrounds, such as my daughter, into the criminal bar, and not, as the link states, allow it to become the preserve of those from entitled and wealthy families as it has now become. Can you suggest a way of doing this without ensuring them a reasonable and comparable income for the amount of work they do, much of which is unpaid?

I can't Chris ... but I've never really thought about it, but I'm sure I could manage on 'just' 180k  ;D. On the plus side .... does your daughter have uni fees to pay for as mine does?  ;)

It's a proposed 30 something % pay rise taking them from 180k to 240k. I think most ordinary people would think they were doing well if they had an annual salary  of 60k

Probably letting coolant get far to low, then overheating. Sensor changed to ensure higher coolant level?

Possibly ... ???
ford forums are saying that a level sensor is not fitted as standard
Just like all cars used be like then  .....  ::)

This though kinda suggests manufacturing issue with block itself or poor coolant maintenance  :-\

This ties in with http://www.omegaowners.com/forum/index.php?topic=143652.0

I think Ford replaced the header tank as well as doing something with the level sensor.  :-\
