Buy another car and solid bar to Push it in, pull it out.

 

Edited for common sense!

I changed the drive belt on Sunday as it was looking a bit elderly

An easy job being right at the front of the engine and on top. Adjusted up easily too.

The old one had stretched a bit...it's definitely the correct replacement too, as I matched up the part numbers.

I also checked the cam belt by popping the cover off. Not in the first flush of youth but looks OK.

Followed by a rinse using Simonez wax free shampoo. I normally use Autoglym, but this was half the price and I reckon does a better job. Where the paint isn't faded or LPd it came up rather well.

Been looking at this and just wish it had a manual box in it!

I put it on gumtree for a laugh, and some knobber offered '£140 cash 2day'. Even by the usual standards that's taking the piss.

I s'pose that's the car equivalent of asking every girl in a nightclub for a dance in that hope that 1 will say yes.

Even if you had accepted his offer it would have dropped to £100 by the time he actually arrived, (which he never would anyway)

I'll keep hold of this for a bit longer after all. Interest was minimal anyway! I can see a roffle in a few months time is probably the best bet.

I've got a 350 mile trip to do tomorrow, and being a hooligan in POWER mode last night proved to me I'm not quite done with it. The fact it's an auto is relatively meaningless, it's still a hoot.

Good call.

I did a fair bit of hooning around in a Legacy saloon of the same vintage with the auto box. Some years ago now but I still remember how much fun it was.

That'll be my future sales pitch. Don't let the auto put you off.
