Well yet again the devil vomits on my duvet. Have been having major left knee, calf and foot fuckery. 

 

Painful, bastardly unpleasant to walk without the aid of my stick and even bloody difficult to take my shoe off without much pain. GP seen today and urgent consultant appt arranged. Looks like dropped foot. Fucking horrible.

 

It's hard enough driving the fucking despised i10 which is full auto. I can't get in or out of the Rover without masses of pain.

 

Mrs PBK is insisting that I look at getting another auto asap. 

 

It is with genuinely heavy heart that I am asking if anyone wants to swap the Rover for an automatic of some variety. No never than K reg please.

 

This is truly a beautiful, beautiful car and testament to Panda's care and attention that was lavished upon it.

 

This really is one of the best condition cars I have had in many years. It really is that nice.

 

The only issues are: slightly droopy headlining at the back of the car, hugely typical but it is present. A small bleb of rust by the base of the areal. Small amount and easily sorted. Sunroof present, replacement used (?) switch hasn't sorted it,so will need further investigation. It is lowered as we all know, but new OE ride height springs included for a not unreasonable amount if required. MOT till Dec. No reason for not passing another test as far as I can see. Three very good tyres and one that has less tread but still looks okay to me.

 

The car is pretty bloody nice to drive, is no major problem for the speed bumps locally and looks the bollox as it is. I really cannot reinforce how clean this car is, inside and out. 

 

Gutted is a bit of an understatement. 

 

So, any swap candidates?

If I had bigger balls I'd swap the gooner with you for it, but then again I'd be worried that the gooner would shit on your head at an inopportune moment...

I would to experience Gooner ownership at some point but I think the insurance bastards would tell me to do one, hence the age restrictions :(

Ah yes, forgot about that. Shame, I'd like to experience rover ownership too one day!

Gooner is twat charge exempt though, I checked today for no real reason at all!

But it does need work, which I'm happily ignoring, but from the sounds of it you don't want that potentially looming on you

Them yellow cubes from out of a proper old-school urinal are easy to sneak in and a better buzz than any modern chemical shit. Never done me any harm.

Possibly but aren't there a couple of roffles already brewing. Roffle overload is a real thing.

 

Not sure what Rovah would be valued at tbh as I would need to include the cost of the new springs as they were an additional deal in the first instance.

No never than K reg please

 

Is this due to 'classic' policy restriction?

 

If so you might find a call will cover 320tourings offering after all
