    Default New SRI rescues old SRI

    Morning chaps.

    Thought I would enlighten you all of my morning so far! After my mum's car having a flat battery and dropping my dad's car off to have some work done I then met a pre facelift silver SRI on an icy country road. The old gent kindly pulled over for me to pass and I pulled past. As I started to drive off I looked behind me to see he was stuck, as in front end in a ditch.

    I reversed back to help, finding it very weird that the one car I would meet would be the exact same car as mine, just pre facelift, and mine is the facelift model.

    The old boy couldn’t get it out even with Dad and I pushing, so I decided to jump in myself and give her the beans. Backwards, forwards, 1st gear, 2nd gear, left and right. It was a diesel SRI and seemed to pull rather well and after about 5 minutes it jolted forward and was free.

    The old guy was extremely thankful and I was going to ask if he was a Vectra-C member, but after seeing the length of his nose and ear hairs I decided to leave it.

    Was extremely glad I could be of help to this guy and made it even better that it was another SRI Vectra C driver.

    Cheers - and stay safe in the snow!

    Im off to trim my nose and ear hair.

    As men get older they loose their hair on their heads and instead it decides to grow out of our ears and down our noses! Fact of Life!
