Quick call from a mate doing a job in Chester Zoo today, could I fetch my van and help him clean out the tiger's enclosure.

My dad plays tennis with one of the directors of the zoo.
When I was born we lived Upton and apparently I was taken for walks along the footpath through the zoo.

Edit
Obv. None of this is relevant to why a tiger has replaced Barbara Cartland.

It is, but there was advisories last year for rust to rear of both sills and front cross member. It needs three tyres (perished) and has 8 weeks MOT. It's up for £500, was offered a deal at £450 but have back heeled it.


Far too much Shirley?

My thoughts, too.

£450 for a Corsa with 8 weeks MOT, welding needing done and 3 perished tyres? The low mileage is all but irrelevant at that point.

It's on eBay for £750 now, or was recently. Very nice lady/family, I just don't see them getting anywhere near to that, sadly.

Richard: there is still a public track that goes through the middle of the zoo, it leads down a hill and comes out by the Shropshire Union. Sadly, you don't really get to see much of the inhabitants though.
In the olden days we used to bunk in down the side of one the enclosures and I got a decent leg off some sort of horse on steroids type animal circa 1978. Only just vaulted the fence before it caught me, then did the normal of sitting under one of the bridges and doing our homework before walking across the fields to school. My mate even had a trick to get us into the aquarium for nothing.

So, holiday in a Skoda. Vectra wasn't (and still isn't) MOT'd, so we took the ex-320_Touring Labia instead:

IMG_2716.JPG


Total done
IMG_2725.JPG

That was loaded up inc. towbar mounted bike carrier and bike, and I wasn't hanging about. Very impressed with the economy.
The car didn't skip a beat, though when we stopped on the way home for half an hour, upon pulling off it felt like it was going to conk out, though my daughter reckons I'd tried to pull off in 3rd, and the car was fine after that.
Seems to splutter a tiny bit when v.low on fuel, suspect it's just the fuel filter. Enough power to get by, and unloaded of holiday gear and just me in it, I saw a Mk3 Mondeo diesel off from the lights in some style last night.
Fairly comfortable, bit of arse ache after a few hours in the saddle, but as much as it pains me to say it about something VAG, it's not actually too bad to whang about in. Interior is just above dull, and the car doesn't really excite (as you'd probably expect) but as second choice and emergency replacement, it could have been a lot worse.
The Vectra would have suited better (bigger, more comfortable and has cruise control) but you can't have everything.

Verdict: 7/10, still in daily use.

Christ knows why the average MPG is actually the time, we managed about 52 per gallon in the end.

It was probably in limp mode.  They normally are.

It wasn't half chucking some black smoke out, but I had the edge on him after ten yards or so and the gap was getting bigger. All a bit silly, really, but you have to do it now and then.

No wonder the gap was getting bigger, he was hanging back because of the smoke.
