  1. Never imagined a system more difficult to negotiate than the UK model. Best of luck buying something you want with money you have and staying out of Prison; all at the same time
  2. Thanks all for your good wishes Much appreciated and genuinely helpful I wasn't going to post on here about what happened but last night just started typing and am glad I Did. I am crap at communicating and am trying to be better at it The Tell me Show me Describe idea has really helped, Deep down I'm a bit Who What Why When etc and it doesn't help with anything non mechanical, I will look at things differently from now on. Whilst I never really got on with My Brother I am going to miss him but just wish He was easier to like I mean He could have tried to help Himself, Family tried Work tried Social Services all did their best but He wouldn't accept help unless it was in the form of money to drink and gamble We reckon a conservative estimate of his losses over 25 years is around £200k Guilt and anger are a big part of our lives at the moment I see that now Thanks again to everyone who helped I'm in a much better place than I was 24 hours ago and will try to pass that on to the rest of the Family. This place etc
  3. 8 Days ago My Brother took his own life after many years of threatening to do so. He left a Wife, Two Children and our Dad to deal with the aftermath of his lies drinking and gambling. I'm glad to see the back of the Useless Twat but by God trying to make sense of things is beyond Me; not so much for me but for those He chose to leave behind is difficult. I haven't got Children and never wanted them so have literally no idea what to say to my Niece (14) and Nephew (12) As for My Dad, who will be burying His Eldest Son next week; I can be of no practical help at all' .God knows I've tried but how can I possibly know how everyone else is feeling?
  4. If both cars were brand new I'd probably say the Starlet had more going for it. In 2019 I'd say a good Micra 1.0 was a much better prospect than a totally shagg**d/neglected Starlet but maybe I'm missing the point entirely.
  5. I'm pretty sure the wiring in the boot is from a Taxi roof sign or "bubble" as they were known as when I tried to earn a living as a Cab Driver in the late 90's when 218's were the unobtainable dream of very inexperienced Owner Drivers of Montego 2.0's such as myself. If Sky one make a second series of Curfew I reckon your car will take centre stage in every scene. Hope it lives for many years to come, it deserves to be immortal.
  6. Britisher Architect.............................................. Sorry you have to be a certain age and have had a very boring childhood to have the faintest idea what I'm on about. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ-DEi1LP50
  7. To a man used to "Taxing" a 7.5 litre V8 for free any kind of monetary payment is bound to sting initially Seriously though Eddy, glad to see you behind the wheel again; Will you be bringing the C3 to Grange in summer??
  8. Well bought and not much to go wrong; I thought my 214i with plastic tree on the dash but not doors and a sunroof was pretty base spec; Obviously I was mistaken, Good luck with the sack cloth and ashes.
  9. I had a 1975 !200 Beetle in 1989-1991; It was noisy, slow uncomfortable and not reliable at all but I loved it Would I love one now in today's traffic? Absolutely not I'd be terrified to drive one to the end of my Street and back but that probably says more about me getting older than the car itself If you really want one get one It's the cars I didn't buy that I regret the most, Not the ones I did.
  10. Would a Suzuki Alto pre 2009 be any good? £30 tax but seem to be available for £600 or less, https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201902104796320?onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&radius=80&advertising-location=at_cars&make=SUZUKI&sort=distance&model=ALTO&postcode=la97et&price-to=1500&page=1 Priced at £795 but 12 months MOT 54.000 miles in Longsight, might be a deal to be done https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201811122348035?onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&radius=80&sort=distance&advertising-location=at_cars&make=SUZUKI&model=ALTO&postcode=la97et&price-to=1500&page=1 Edit MOT history on the last one looks a bit suspect, FH03 VVB https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/
  11. Currently adorning a Volvo S80 for sale in Morecambe for £1195 Wonder who the previous owner might have been
  12. Do Kia Sedonas sometimes fall into just above scrap territory anymore? I'd imagine the carrying capacity is better than some vans with the seats taken out .https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201903015449153?price-to=1500&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&postcode=la97et&model=SEDONA&advertising-location=at_cars&sort=distance&radius=100&make=KIA&page=1 Cheapest I could find within 100 miles but haven't dared to look on Gumtree.
  13. Buy an MX5 as cheap as possible All the rust better parts supply more fun per mile and thousands of pounds left over to fund imminent divorce.
  14. No pics but I had a Suzuki LJ80 soft top 4X4 in 1993, £600 from a Newsagent near Colwyn Bay JJO 984W had 797cc of pure power but convertible off roaders were few and far between in those days Got fed up with the draughty hood and 50mph cruising speed pretty quickly so advertised it in the local rag for £795, 32 phone calls in one night, Someone turned up with the full asking price by 6pm and drove off quite happily Those were the days We shall not see their like again.
  15. Sorry Monsieur don't go south of the Seine this time o' Night.
