She looks good cleaned.

Since it took seven months to sell the sierra I think I should now put this up for sale so that by July it should find a new home.
So here we go she's officially up for sale and at the same bargain price of £1200.

I have £1,200 and I am having impure thoughts about this but I am desperately trying to stop myself buying more cars and am instead saving my money to mend the ones I already have. 

 

Crazy idea I know. This is what happens when I don't drink enough alcohol.

I have the money

I have a mate who I'm pretty sure lives near by garbaldy who I'm due an over due piss up with.

Have been throwing about crazy notions about fleet reduction.

 

It's not looking good for the Christmas club money.

One last pic of the fine old steed,
IMG_20170107_131246518.jpg
And the original interior back in the back so it looks like she's definitely off to pastures new.

Since John is now home safe and sound I can now add this pic.

I decided to sell this on a wim and as it took ages to sell the last time I stuck it up with no real need to sell, big mistake as I had more interested parties than I ever imagined, a deal was done and lightening fast collection agreed plus I broke my payment by electric airwaves virginity,
So here's the happy victim I mean new owner as he set of on his long way down,

IMG_20170107_151513793_HDR.jpg

So it's back in Enlandshire and I will miss the old gal for sure,
This now sticks me with a bit of a dilemma I have a spare insurance policy that I don't want to cancel before finding something else.

I dithered last time this was for sale so decided not to this time.  

 

Also - I spend a lot of time moaning about trains, but they were perfect this time and a bargain too.

It runs well - I always liked those 200/300 TDIs - just clever enough to be good, but simple enough to stay reliable.
