Bristol has been and gone, poo count to 2, tried buying chewing gum and the self service machine threw a wobbly.

Wish my friends, family and colleagues would agree, those of the Shite persuasion understand, the rest of them think I've taken leave of my senses.

Just spotted a sunroof in the advert pictures, which will come in handy today, it's ruddy gorgeous out there, getting more and more excited to pick this up now!

It will all go well. When it all goes well it'll be a frugal and very relaxing cruise back to your end of the country.

My research* reliably informs me that the Omega saloon is possibly a silver Elite. At least it has an Elite spoiler, so unless it's a Reflection special edition which came with the same spoiler UR IN 4 A TREET M9.

 

I am in no way F5ing this thread.

The best diesl engine they had, later (2.2) ones not as good imho. Getting the train to Oswestry is a nightmare, as the station (Gobowen) is a few miles away, iirc. Is the car at Bank Top Industrial Estate? The units look very familiar.

If it is Bank Top Industrial Estate then that's completely the other way from Gobowen station.
It's on the outskirts of the village St Martin's,which is halfway between Oswestry and Chirk...

For the record, posting a picture of the purchase price was what led me straight to the car in question - there were only a handful of cars finished at £320 this month and this was the only one that day. You shouldn't have told me you were changed going trains as I was a bit confused at that point!

Looks nice though. I'm assuming it's not the ex Wobbler one?

There was a track day place there for go-karts, iirc. There was also a Volvo specialist with a decent collection of old choddy ones outside, plus a couple of 1970's Scanias not too far away. Did you ever go to the bike breakers on Bank Top, Andy?
