    Default Another car.............. sigh

    Well
    Due to a rather unfortunate 3 months of illness and other issues I ended up having to sell my Vectra Estate to a rather nice fellow from Aberdeen who was as daft on her as I was.

    Sad days

    On the upside it meant I could get back on my feet, pay the debts and kick start getting a bit better.

    In the interim to keep me on the tarmac I went to the auction and picked this up


    Picked him up very cheap as the turbo had blown and the last owner has not looked after it at all. It had an MOT and tax so was ready to run, but needed a major claeing inside and out (i cant believe how some people treat there cars)

    So thanks to the nice chaps at Evolution in Dunfermline we have a new turbo, the car is running schaweet.
    Ive picked up a Mags restoration kit for the paint and all he needs now is some new boots and he is a great wee bargain.

    Ive called him Archie, but my bf has told me not to get too attached as ive to finish tidying him and sell him on for the profit

    Booooo
    but at least that means I can get another Vectra

    You could always try putting it that after all the money you've spent on the Turbo etc, if there's no service history the "profit" might not be worth all the effort you've put in, so you might as well run it on for a while......

    When the ashtrays are full just empty them, no need to buy another car. Hope you're feeling better mate.
