^^^ Snowlet, rather than Starlet?

Hey, it's not white death from the sky - it's compelling narrative, that's what it is.

Will be watching and waiting!

Not to takeover mr wobblers thread but the bluebird was on 25k and now on 33k


Indeed.. don't want to derail the thread, but my father had one of these in the Netherlands from 85 to 88, and it was a particularly rare 2.0i version. Went really rather well and was superbly well equipped. First car I ever saw with power mirrors. I still have the 3rd number plate that was made up for trailer duties some 30+ years later.

You should do the gumtree challenge...

Charge up your phone and bring AA card.
Drive Lexus to its new home
(maybe airbnb a night so you can get an early start)
Sit down in a Cafe with gumtree open and find the cheapest, least dodgy preferably Japanese car you can find, walk around newsagents/join those shit facebook car selling pages
Buy chod
Ring Hagerty
Drive home
Edit video
Write magazine article
???
Profit

Then when your back from Bulgaria with more exciting rammel, just bin the gumtree car/cheap roffle/fall in love and keep it for ever/3 months whilst debating getting rid of the Honda again before realizing you should never do that as applicable

Keep Honda as reliable backup car for boring work related stuff

It's a nice idea, but I've sort-of done that by lining up and blind purchase for the drive home. It is already insured (sadly with Bishop Calways as I need business use on it) so now I just need to hand over the money and drive home, hoping I haven't just bought an utter shitter.

You did put a valliant effort in, but were severely limited by needing a van! At least you had fun* though, as did all of us watching and helping you along

Given the fact that there might be snow, and that NE Shiters seem generally to be a nice bunch, I'm giving serious though to just stopping over somewhere on Saturday night and driving back rather more leisurely the next day. Would be nice to have a natter rather than rushing off immediately. We'll see what the day brings...

And there's a fair few more people nearby too.  If there were to be a Saturday afternoon / early evening meet, or even Sunday morning, would anyone attend?

 

Let's say Gateshead-ish, much as I hate the metro centre it is probably fairly central, another option might be if people wanted to take a look at the steampunk stuff at locomotion this weekend, or a trip to look at the North Sea, because it's wet and has fish and chips.

 

Edit: weather permitting, obviously; Yellow weather warning for Friday night for snow / ice.

Steampunk you say? Oh that's it. I'm definitely staying up north for a bit.
