    Default Vectra , Finally Gone = But I'll Hang Around Still = If you'll have me = L.O.L.

    It's funny how things work out .

    Last October 2011 , i had a job and was hoping to sell my 2006 ( 56 ) , 85k , F.S.H. , 2.2 petrol Direct Design Vectra ,

    so i could buy a 1.9 diesel Vectra .

    So it went on the Bay of E in October 2011 , ( and not one bite ) ,

    Then again just before Christmas ( 4 watchers , not one nibble )

    Then again in about February and May 2012 , ( about 9 watchers , but no enquiries ) .

    Then i put i back on , Mon 2nd July 2012 ( 6 watchers ) , and the very first person to view the car since the 8 or 9 months of starting to sell the car , actually bought it , last Sunday 8 July 2012 .

    I bought the car in March 2011 and sold it July 2012 and only managed to get about 55 % of my purchase price back .

    When i first started selling last October , i hoped to replace it with a 1.9 C.D.T.I. , i didn't bank on it taking 8 months to sell , then in early April 2012 , i became unemployed until 5 July 2012 , so it became even more important to sell the car as it had been laid up outside the house since the insurance ran out in end of March 2012 and money was needed else where .

    Anyway , i got new work / job on the 5th July and sold the Vectra 8th July . ... Good Timing ehh ?

    What is the longest it has taken anyone to sell their Vectra ?

    P.S. = I'll still be hanging around , if you'll have me = l.o.l

    Here's to the next Vectra ,

    Hopefully i'll eventually get that 1.9 C.D.T.I.

    It's been sitting outside the house without insurance ( due to unemployment ) since late March 2012 until Sun 8th July , when i sold it .

    So keeping firemen in a job was out of the question ...........
