I've seen a scandibox I'd like, as a barge-ish but still sensible and practical car. 

It's at a dealer in Chesham and having discussed it with an 850 owner (cheers reb), it seems like it'd be a good buy.

Can anyone assist with viewing etc, either a lift there or meeting me there before I go myself and bugger it up?

I still live in Waterside.
That's less than a mile away. Is that dealers appointment only? Never seems to be anybody there.

Further examination reveals eBay and Auto Trader have three different phone numbers between them. 
I'll see if any of them work.

Autotrader numbers are localised redirected numbers to hide your real number and stop calls once the advert is taken off their website. So probably goes to the same phone number.
Oldies: 1972 Austin 1100 2dr - Project Rust bucket, 1974 MGB GT - A stereotypical classic car.
Moderns: 2008 Audi TT - Utterly boring but very compentent, 2010 Aldi A4 - Owned to placate the wife on my crap buying.

To be perfectly honest, in true Junkman fashion, I'm the last one to not respond to the call for assistance from a fellow shiter, so I'm in there without any questions asked, if asked at all. However, the outlook that the destination of a reasonable Climate™ Improvement® trip is culminating at one of those incredibly depressing shitboxes is on par with looking at some Vauxhall when Squire Dawson had similarly deranged ambitions.

 

Why can't it be something actually worth looking at? Why can't it be something not depressing?

 

The fact that nobody ever listens to me despite I'm always right is a phenomenon that will never cease to amaze me.

 

I'm in.

 

Not because I want to, but because I will never decline the help call of a shiter.

 

 

Savoury Muffins. As if life wouldn't be full enough of disappointments.

 

 

I despair.

 

Do not expect me to find a single redeeming feature on that post 1986 dismal pile of shit.

 

And while I'm at it, a fucking Civic?

What the fuck is RONG with you?

 

Good Lord.

 

Can't you see the fun side of life?

I wish ze Junkman would actually say what he thinks rather than sitting on the fence all the time...

Like any true Englishman I'm never unintentionally rude. If you're offended by this post, good as that is what was my intention.
