Fiesta’s at The Palace

Fiesta’s at The Palace

Road tripping is my favourite mini-adventure, so when Ford invited me to join them at the launch of the new Ford Fiesta, little did I know that I was in for a bucket list treat.

The destination was a secret, right up until I got behind the wheel of the styling new Ford Fiesta!

A car designed to Go Your Way! A car to match your attitude as you make your way up the ladder – and do it in style! And, since the new Ford Fiesta is all about making your way into the world of awesomeness, Sun City was the perfect destination to launch this fierce and feisty little car.

Mustangs & Milkshakes

Mustangs & Milkshakes

When was the last time you jumped in your car and drove? No plans, no map and no idea where you’re headed? Those “let’s see where the open road takes us” opportunities are rare, but when they happen, that’s when you find the best best kept secrets! I spent last week, just like that. Driving around in the new Ford Mustang, with no set plan and just seeing where the road leads. One of those roads (and there were many), led me to the coolest retro styled Roadhouse, where I found the best milkshakes in Jozi. Growing up in the 90’s, we didn’t have drive through fast food joints and Roadhouses were all the rage. They were also the place to go if you wanted a thick and delicious shake to wash down a seriously loaded burger, or an oozing toasted cheese. Ya know, the ones wrapped in paper with a little gherkin on top? I miss those days! So what an awesome throwback it was to find Kota Joe Roadhouse and get a blast from the past – but this time, in a true American Muscle Car. Back in the day, our parents (or grandparents for some of you) must’ve gotten quite…

An Epic Day of Sand & Dunes With The New Ranger Auto

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited on an epic adventure with Ford South Africa. Myself, together with a whole bunch of super cool travel and lifestyle bloggers were flown out to George, and spent the day putting the new Ford Ranger Auto through its paces. The goal; to see how much fun you can have in this beast! And so much fun was had!

Ford Ikon – Affordable, dependable and practical motoring

Ford Ikon – Affordable, dependable and practical motoring

I came to the cold, hard realization the other day that for a large portion of the population buying a car is like buying a new stapler.  In other words it has to be functional, inexpensive and shouldn’t break your arm or shoot a staple into your eye every time you use it – i.e. safe. After a while walking in circles with both hands clasping my head and muttering, “No, no, no, no, no” I realized that it’s like saying you’re going to buy new clothes for no other reason than that your old ones have holes in awkward places and aren’t even doing the job they were designed to do. Trendy, textured, sexy, sensual and style have absolutely no meaning and clothes are worn precisely to cover up your wobbly bits and keep you warm when the mercury starts dropping. That’s crazy talk and I’m sure you, the fabulous readers of StyleScoop have more than a modicum of fashion and beauty sense, otherwise you wouldn’t be readers of StyleScoop. But these sort of people do exist and in my efforts to cater to the large portion of the country,  that think driving something similar to a cardboard box…

The new Fiesta: Something to celebrate

The new Fiesta: Something to celebrate

In December I went through to the Ford Dealership on Witkoppen Rd (Behind the Buzz Shopping centre) and test drove the new Fiesta.  Seeing that my first car was a Fiesta, some 10 years ago, I was curious as to how it had evolved since I owned one. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. Their showroom has the old model side by side with the new model. So you are able to step into the old one, check it out and then step into the new one and be blown away by the changes. The most obvious change is that the exterior has undergone a dramatic overhaul. The headlights take on a more aggressive look with the swept back design. The whole car is rounder, more sculpted and might I say, very sexy! Ford is now doing what is known as “kinetic design” which basically means that there is a standard design globally. So, gone are the days where you would see a different version of the car you know and love when traveling abroad!
