You're making me feel guilty that I just used and abused this old bus, but in my defence, despite not washing it, I did fit new tailgate struts :-)

I'm excited for the draw even though I've no interest in actually getting the car!

 

I'm a bit worried that now that I've done one roffle the psychological barrier has been broken and I'm going to start bidding on any old tat.

Might try and win something for my stepdad to get to work in, save him walking in the winter cold.

Slightly - more East though ;)

 

I've had a 740 before, Ex-dollywobbler blue estate of doom, and although it was utterly shagged, it was lovable and charming - and damp - but mostly damp. Oh, and smelly. :)

 

 

 

Funnily enough, I've never actually won a raffle before, but there's always a first time....

Im rather hoping this is true. Just not *quite* as far north as you would like.

I have much want for this car, my v40 isn't quite big enough to kip in....

This thing is the perfect camping weapon.
Double airbed fits perfectly in the back (optional dickhead trying and failing to get out of shot).

Congratulations to the victor! And it comes as absolutely no surprise that it’s heading to Volvo country!
I think my 740 must be the only one left in England now. I’ve had to land anchor the thing down to stop it trying to migrate.

Must admit, when I saw this come up I very nearly made a heavy investment in my first attempt at a roffle. I’ve been trying to stay away!

You cannot prevent the annual migration of the classic Volvo. If you do it's morally indefensible as it's a protected species. I'll have you sued!
