Maybe I should think about a reserve car as no sign of Cadillac. Triumph Vitesse or 156 Sportwagon are ready to go.

156 has air-con and last time I used it it was cold.

 

Add - home forecast is 20ºC and Portsmouth only 17ºC.

Richard K has it now.

 

Don't worry though I still have convertibles, Vitesse on the road and I will tax my Saab from the 1st of May.

It’s not looking good for me being at this now annoyingly!

Somethings come up I don’t think I can get out of without getting in the shit. I’d booked the day off but apparently because it’s toil and we’re short staffed I can’t take that day now!
I don’t think I can do anything about it unfortunately.

If work was anything like today then I'm not going to be able to come along. Normally I'm out the depot by half 12 - 1 o'clock, got back at 3pm today. I'm totally shagged out.

 

I'll be logged into my phone on Wednesday so I can keep you up to speed, was looking forward to my first shite meet.

Right, crisis over!

I’ve managed to shift a few things around and blag a favour so I’m ok to take the day off again! I’ll be significantly more busy at work tomorrow as a result but the important thing is I’m good to go Wednesday.

I was well pissed off when they told me this morning!
I’ve cleaned and polished the Mercury in readiness for this. A whole days work.

Now you are going to show up our under nourished stunted Cadillac!

 

Edit - I have just looked up the Mercury and I read 18 feet 61/2 inches, that is 1 foot 8 inches longer than us!

Cadillac is home, but now it won't start.

 

It arrived on a transporter and drove off. I then took it to town no trouble and on to Tesco store, but it did not start first try, then would not restart at the pump.  A chap helped me push it clear of the pumps. The ignition turned on but the starter does did not turn and I tried it a few times and then it restarted. I drove it 3 miles home and now the starter will not turn. I have tried jumping it and recharging it but no different.
