Yes.

Anybody up for a mini meet in Durham tomorrow? I'll be there all afternoon.



Anyway. The job interview was fine. The honda accord coupe 2.0 manual was terrible. Clutch was all but nonexistent and the seller had butchered the radio wiring to the point it was fucked. I walked away, and now rantingyoof needs to get home. He is driving me in my xantia to Northampton. Then I have the whole weekend to wander back north.

Does your return journey go near Hull?

I've a couple of tons of tarmac to shift in the morning, but would be glad to have an excuse to shuffle the lexus about.  Maybe you could persuade SoC to dig MayDay out, since the weather is nice :P

Full retardation achieved. Xantia traveled this miles today.

Xantia will travel back to Aberdeen with Supernaut.

I drove it 160 miles of that.

It's an ace thing. Thoroughly recommend.

This thread TL:DR (understandable):

Supernaut set out for Manchester to collect a silver Honda Accord coupe he won on eBay.

I set out for Manchester to collect Supernaut's Xantia and bring it south to encourage its eventual sale.

As the first part failed to happen and the second part did happen (sort of) it means that Supernaut has travelled to Northampton to collect his own Xantia. Kind of?

Simple*!

Sad that this never came to, 

 

On the flip side, be even more random and spend a few hours tomorrow finding a car while down south and leave away with something. WCPG-More-W?

Well done for walking away unlike last time!

Buy the Puma, it will be a nice change and would do Knockhill a bit better than the Lexus!

Successfully*, ah, collected**.

A full review of the unsuccessful car collection escapade will be written by Supernaut in due course.

He has just left my house bound for Durham. Should easily get there for 3ish.

Maybe by the time he's home he will have re bonded with it and won't want to sell it.

Pisser about the Honda, should we all post the seller an argos book or was it not that sort of experience?

Luckily I don't think the xantia was sold, just being sold in an area where its more likely to be sold than up in the wilderness of Scotland shire

I think the drive to mine with me complimenting the refinement, mid-range grunt and frankly absurdly good fuel economy all the way made him realise exactly what he'd have lost.

No need to go all stampy on the seller...I think (hope) there'll be a resolution that will see Supernaut have his deposit refunded and we'll have only lost petrol money/train ticket money and time between us.
