I hydro-locked my 1994 Rover 214's engine on New Year's Eve 2002, after I drove into floodwater in the dark on the outskirts of Basildon. I had a replacement engine fitted to it, but it never felt the same again.

 

I replaced it with The Volvo in December 2003, which despite being currently bereft of an MOT, is still going strong.


Cars come and cars go, but The Volvo abides.

 

2003 - Date: The Volvo - 1990 Volvo 740 SE Dogmatic estate.

 

2016 - Date: The Aero - 2000 Saab 9-5 Aero HOT manual estate.

I worked for the facilities management company at that hell hole from 2007-2010. By the end of my tenure, my faith in human nature had almost evaporated.

I've not been back there since.
