    Default So sick of it, so finally took action......

    Am a Vauxhall Guy!
    I wont rest until all my friends, family and secret lovers own one!

    So.
    After an amazing run of converting many, we hit my dad.
    Grumpy
    Old
    Retired
    Wont spend money

    Running a Nissan Quashiquaki (whatever) right ok, good car, it was even in this funny "Fired Iron" colour and was pretty cool, even had standard blueteeth, yet also was an 07 with 70k miles. So after months of nagging and mum saying she was scared to drive it, I got him to the Vauxhall Dealer.

    so i persuaded him to go for a Meriva SE on 11 plate. Lots of spec, pana roof, half leather, cruise, warranty, no MOT's, yadda yadda. Even mum was happy to drive it! (unlike Nissan Quaqmire)

    Within days, "I dont like this Minerva!".

    From then on, I have had nothing but constant complaints and agro for persuading him to get the "Minerva" (FFS)
    ITS MERIVA

    Everytime he passes a Quishquash he points out the fact he "had one of them until my son forced me to get a Minerva!"


    So......



    Take that and disco ya grunpy old cant

    TBH Mate, I think he just has bad taste.... He went from a "CashCow", to a Meriva....I mean really!

    Thats like going from owning a Dog Turd to owning a slightly less stinky dog turd!!

    A 1.4 Turbo Corsa, or a Astra 1.6VVT would have been a far better choice.... and what I would have angled for if I was going to break rule number 5.

    Still, I have no sympathy with you... everyone knows that you should NEVER, EVER, NO MATTER WHAT, play a part in helping family/work colleagues/friends choose cars... it'll be your fault forever every-time it breaks, goes wrong, needs filling with fuel..... you have broken rule number 5 mate.

    If I had a gun to my head, Meriva or Cash Cow, I would choose the trigger...;-)
