Oh ffs... sorry to hear that, man. You're due some good luck. Really hope you don't have to sell this car as you clearly like it.

Sorry to hear about that Mr Jim, life throws these things to try us. If you can hang on to the car that'd be great, maybe someone on here will take it then give first refusal later on?
The referendum is akin to going car hunting.
However you're not obliged to buy the car because you went for a look.
Buy doesn't mean buy if you sit down and realise the numbers look suicidal.

Thanks for the offer man. There is a fundraiser going but I wouldn't expect anyone that didn't really know her or me to be contributing. A couple of Shitters I know have, which is very kind but also quite embarrassing.


Share the link. Even if a few of us only spare a couple of quid, it all helps and can soon rack up to a reasonable sum.

Hopefully it won't come to that fingers crossed. Extended family have all said they'll contribute and her friends are all coming together so we shall see. It's an option though.

The fundraiser is on Facebook and was set up by one of her best friends. It's unlikely that anyone will even be able to see it to be honest so I dont think anyone that didn't know her even CAN contribute.

Hey

The link is very visible publicly, and it looks like the money is coming in at a good rate.

Again, sorry for your loss. It sounds terribly glib but nobody’s come up with anything new to say to recently bereaved and I’d hate you to think we didn’t all care.

Don’t be selling that car yet. There’s always a way...

Done.  I had a small win on a local charity lottery lately, so that's the amount I've sent.

 

I totally understand that you feel uncomfortable asking for charity from strangers, so please remember that this isn't charity, it's karma.  We help each other out on this forum - others have been very good to me, so I know that it will all come around again when I'm in need.

 

I've mentioned in the grumpy thread a couple of times that my sister has some issues and I've dreaded being in this situation more than once lately - fortunately she is doing well at the moment, but this could have been me.

 

That car gives you a lot of pleasure and you really need that right now.  I really hope you don't have to sell it (until you want to).

 

Sorry to come over all heavy, but I'm saying this so that you'll feel better about accepting the donation.

Thanks very much fella. It's very kind and much appreciated. I hope I can return the favour somewhere down the road and I hope your sister carries on doing great.

I've popped a few pence in your Paypal, as said on the other thread, sorry to hear of your loss.

 

Also, this thread has made me interested in a Benz built after 1986.

I believe they simultaneously don’t exist whilst also needing “six fucking litres”

Or something.
