Need a dog carrying estate


the judge

Recommended Posts

My choices would be limited to:

 

E34 5 series (or an E39 if you can find a tidy one)

W124 Mercedes (love the way these look)

Omega Estate.

 

I wouldn't turn down a Volvo estate either. I've had a few volvo's and have a lot of love for them ...

I'm afraid this is one of my 'hobby horses'. Dogs should not be in boots of anything. In fact, anything at all that you value as there are way too many fucking morons who believe in using the rear of your car instead of brakes.

 

I don't know if it's just round here, but rear shunts are at epidemic proportions and the aftermath is not pretty.

Dog Beard spends many hours travelling in the back bit of the Accord. She is happy. Rear shunts do worry me though. How else should I carry her? Worried.

Something mingebag like a Hyundai Lantra or Daewoo might be worth a look if it's just for a dog-toter. They're available for pennies and seem every bit as reliable as the Jap stuff from the 90s was.

Or just buy a Volvo 900 before they all gravitate northwards, at least you'll always find a willing market for it on here when you decide to get shot.

I should add that my 940 is a '97... early phase 2 V70s should be eligible shortly too. They covered my 850 T-5 quite happily too, and my policy is unlimited mileage, covers commuting and european cover.

This is excellent news sir. My phase 2 V70 is turning 15 this year :)

 

Apologies for the thread hijack but I take it classic insurance isn't compatible with a smattering of business miles?
