    Been talking to dad and his mate about the car I'm tasked with selling. 
     
    'he wants £800 for it, that's all it owes him. Anything else you can keep'. 
    MOTHER FUCKIN' WINDFALL!

    My mate had one in his yoof when we all had minis, Chevettes or mk1 Fiestas. 
    He loved it, used to go to festivals before they were cool. We hated it.
    It did about 50mph and drove like a milk float. 
    He said it was great, you can bimble along and stop in a layby and make a cup of tea. 
    We pointed out that in our "Proper" cars, we were already home and in the pub by the time he got to the layby. 
    30 years on, I can see where he was coming from.

    I think that is a dad thing. 
    Like turning off light switches whilst tutting. 
    My dad would only buy run out models or something that had been around for at least a decade, "give them chance to iron out the faults. "
    Then he'd buy a BL product and find all the faults were still there!

    It still exists. 
    My Outlander is a "Juro" spec. 
    I have no idea where that sits in the accepted Popular, L GL, GLS, Ghia scale but it has DAB, heated seats, aircon, cruise, heated screen etc... 
    But it still has 9, yes 9 switch blanks. 
    God only knows what kind of spec they are all for.

    Second last place we sold I had our buyer turn up on the doorstep:  I'm just of the phone to my solicitor he's still waiting for a copy of the plans for your extension'.
    'Really? I dropped them in personally at their offices about three weeks ago. Here, have photocopy to jog his memory'.

    I may be as thick as a whale omelette but....
     
    We think of a car we'd like to smoke about in available for a budget of £500
     
    We sell 59 tickets.
     
    Some sort of appointed person then uses the cash to buy the car of choice or as near as they can get.
     
    Then the next lotto draw decides who gets the car.
     
    Is this the idea?
     
    Otherwise we would need sellers to hold on to a car for as long as it takes to sort out a fund.
     
    I can imagine how that would work...
     
    "Hello, a group of internet weirdos would like to buy your Volvo 850...
     
    Could I come and take some photos, check it over and if we like it we can pay you £500 in two weeks time and then a random person from the other end of the country will pick it up two weekends later....

    Despite not selling a set of Capri points for probably twenty years I still know you need intermotor 22740 for a motor craft distributor. 
    If only I could remember what I did yesterday. 
     
    Intermotor stuff was pretty good quality in the day but I think they may just be a name on a Chinese box these days.

    Am old girlfriend had a brand new one on an R plate. 
    She picked me up in it with about 50 miles on the clock and then proceeded to rag it down the bypass at 90mph!
    Brilliant cars in my book. 
    Few years later my wife (not the same person) had one as a courtesy car which had numberwang seats. I thought it was ace, she wasn't at all keen though. 
    Good buy.

    Started as a Saturday job when I was about 14. Probably sold 20 sets of points on a busy Saturday  and there was only 6 types that fitted most cars. 
    After 6 months I would get complete service kits together without looking at the books. 
    Unless it was a Renault 5 or 340 Volvo. They were a choice of 6 and still never fitted. 
    I can remember all sorts of crap like that.   Can't remember if I locked the door or where in supposed to be tomorrow though.
