I created this site in 2004 with Yahoo Sitebuilder (Now sold on to Aabaco), I still use Sitebuilder but for the last 10 years there has been a bug in my site . If I make a change to the
Toolbar Sitebuilder will randomly delete text from site pages. I split my site into sub domains and I have more or less eradicated the bug which I now know is caused by the Advanced
Navigation Bar Editor. If a text box contains gibberish it is not my fault. I would not recommend Sitebuilder, unfortunately I am stuck with it.

floaty at speed.

make money. It have a smooth ride on bumpy roads and the
engine had loads of mid range pull. The handling was very
1989-90 My first company car a Ford Escort 1.3L. It came
with a 5 speed gearbox, sunshine roof and central locking, I
was so proud. The car ran well but on cold days the
carburation was too lean and it lost a lot of power.
1987 A Renault 18 1.8 petrol. I bought and sold this car to
make money. Same comments as the Renault 18 above.
The ride was smooth on bumpy roads and the engine had
