If they start chipping money off before even venturing down to see the car then I tend to find in my experience they are timewasters. I won’t even talk money before they have seen then car.

Many don’t even bother turning up! Saves my time!

You're probably right.  It's quite likely I'm just getting paranoid, but you do hear tales of big old cars being spirited away, don't you?  Mine's in the alley behind the house, it wouldn't be that hard to Hiab away.  Fortunately we sleep in the back bedroom...

No-show.  Which is probably a good thing.

 

So while I was walking Memphis earlier I had a brainwave.  On the next street lives a roofer, whose front windows look directly down our alley where Huggy lives.  And I've seen what appears to be a security/web camera in his front bedroom window.  So today I asked him about it, and explained why.

The cam doesn't work.  Bummer.

 

Fuck it, it's insured.

My ad still hasn't appeared in CCB. However... last night I was having a chat on Facebook with a bloke from Kendal (he says) who had put up a "wanted" for an American car. So obviously I offered him Huggy. He's supposedly coming to see it today. He spent a lot of time trying to chip the price, which bothers me.
What really bothers me is, he knows where I live now. Is he one of those less-than-scrupulous banger chaps that'll just come and hoist it away? Time will tell...

it's insured for theft ??? Ah I see you already said that

Probably just a dreamer, nothing more.  I'm amazed you haven't found a buyer for it yet, it's one of the cheapest ways into American barge ownership.  Secretly hoping you don't sell it so when you're better again you can continue enjoying it.

Secretly, Angyl?  Me too!  But She Has Spoken, so I'm afraid it has to happen.  I'm not going to let it go too cheap though.  I think my last Shiters' Price was £4500?  That is absolutely as far as I will go, and for a non-Shiter I will take some dragging to get that low.

You might be better creating a separate advert to this thread with specific details on the car , up to date pictures etc. While I’m sure it’s all here the information is scattered .

I’d also put it on retro rides. A lot of people go looking for older stuff there and it’s free. The buyers are also mostly sensible but you may see your car in 6 months time on airbags .

I estimate this car needs £3000 maybe £4000 spending on it to get it rite and when this is done it will be wotrth about £1500!!

If he does that he might actually sell it so in this instance that sounds like a very silly idea.

It's a mixed bag.  I really don't want to sell because I like the car so much, despite what MrsR has to say.  On the other hand it's just sitting in the back alley because I can't drive it.  And I do need the money, I owe a good chunk of it!  So selling seems like the sensible option.   I've got to be sensible occasionally.

In that case...

I had another FB conversation with the same waster.  Got him up as far as 3500 and told him there was no chance of it going for that.  Not sure but I think he might have got the message.

Subsequently, today I missed a phone call because I accidentally turned the ringer off.  He did leave a message, so I'll see if he calls again tomorrow and if not, I'll call him.

OK, I spoke to yesterday's caller, actually mouth-to-ear, on the phone, and he seems relatively sensible.  There may be a viewing soon.

No viewings yet, but I have had another caller.  I sent him some photos and he had the decency to email me back saying it wasn't for him.  OK, fair enough.  Haven't heard any more from the first caller though.

So today...

 

I've actually been out in Huggy!

 

My mate Mike showed up and we (well mostly he) refitted the alternator, so we (again, read he) took it for a drive.  Ohhhhhhhhh boy was it lovely.  It's been sitting silent for a few days short of six months, but fired up third turn of the key and ran with all the usual aplomb.  See, that's what you get with a proper Cadillac.  A strong sense of natural authority, a serene immunity from everything outside.  I really really don't want to sell.  Sadly, I really really need to.

If Mr H. Bear Esq. is legal should he not be making a guest appearance at Eddyfest? Or is there salt on Cumbria's roads already?

An appearance is a possibility.  Road salt? Pah!  We sneer at road salt!  Huggy lives outside, all year round, and has spent the last two Christmases doing what cars are supposed to.  Not to mention taking us to Portsmouth in January 2017, a road trip of getting on for a thousand miles.

What do you think this is?  Some sort of pampered show queen?

My sparky came round today and checked out the alternator.  With only a little revving it makes 14.5v, so that's fine.  He's a bit concerned about the lack of a battery light on the dash, so he's gone away to think about it.  So it looks like we may indeed have Huggy at Eddyfest!
