Good to hear you're still with us, Sealtainn!

 

How's Bulgaria treating you & the family?

As it's been some considerable time since my last post, thought I'd post an update.
The Granada is now residing in our barn in Bulgaria. She now has a set of LHD headlights and NOS headlight protectors fitted in preparation for her KAT test and subsequent Bulgarian registration next year.

Hi everyone,
Bulgaria is fantastic, the people are very friendly & tolerant of my piss poor language efforts. We are looking at Mrs Seal & the kids moving out there full time next year and I'll stay in the UK working and taking chunks of time off work to go back & forth.
Can't remember if I posted before but stupidly I didn't check Mrs Seals licence restrictions and she wasn't able to drive something the size of the Mercedes with that many seats (even though she has her Category 1) so I sadly had to part with it a few weeks before we left for Bulgaria last year and buy something else sharpish. Ended up with this

Blimey, I can't believe it's two years since you did that epic collection from here to the Shetlands. Gives me a flimsy excuse to post this photo.

Was down-seating the vehicle and updating the paperwork not an option?

Not in the timescale, found out less than 2 weeks before we were due to leave, the Merc has gone to a good home on the Mainland
