No, I don't need another car... we don't really need both of the cars we already have because most of my regular journeys are by bike and the Mrs uses the bus. We can just about justify having two cars in that the Versatile Forty is the boring/sensible/dependable tool and the 924 provides the everything else I need from a car. We've got it all covered.
So I bought a Volvo, another Volvo. To keep the V40 company.
But this one is much more interesting, because its a cheap(ish) Volvo from the 80s, which I've bought sight unseen off of a stranger, that I don't need. I've been casually looking for one for ages, and I recently found one in fantastic condition, with some original accessories and paperwork, the location is fairly convenient (as in: not Scotsvmland) and the seller was up for a deal. I tried to stop myself but I just couldn't. After a bit of internet haggling I committed to buying it for a bit over two thirds of the advertised price. It's bought, so too late to back out now.
I won't give away details until I've sorted out the necessary logisticals but I'm aiming to collect it this week one evening after work. I'll do a live but dull collection thread if you're happy to play along with the gentle teasing and deliberate avoidance of details. I hope it won't disappoint you all too much.
Autoshite is a bad influence and makes me do naughty things.
