Lads, lads, lads. Its been ages since I bought a thing, and I LOVE BUYING THINGS. I couldn’t sleep last night, for instance.
I feel great because buying vehicles SOLVES ALL OF LIFE’S PROBLEMS (apart from parking permits).
Anyway, I just agreed to buy a thing, with collection commencing today or tomorrow.
In the meantime, let’s spy on the vendors house on street view shall we? My little bundle of joy is tucked in behind that rather tasty 164.
1998 SUBARU IMPREZA NON-TURBO AWD MANUAL ESTATE WITH ROOF BARS AND MASSIVE FOGLIGHTS FOR DOOM SCENARIOS
Bought this off Bramz last month, done a few hundred miles in it. Perfectly reliable, school run kaos etc
But had some sudden and big household bills loom, so having a big sell-off
MOT is only to end of this month though. But everything works - all windows, no dash warnings; it's been a handy and hunky dory motor car. Interior tidy. Exterior pretty clean, bar the odd knock and scuff and arch bubble. It's not a shed by any means.
History file though up to a point, recent bills for service items, but cambelt roulette. 132k. Tyres are about 18 months old, but they are budget ditchfinders. I intended to keep it, wanted this exact spec for years, but will have to let it go after all.
It will need that dicky front caliper replacing as the stickiness comes back after a few days after freeing it off. Discs look to have little time left on them too. Bonus is being the non-Turbo it has drums on the rear. Synchromesh scratchy when cold, clutch feels a bit crunchy action but plenty of meat there
Bonuses are: it's green, it's the estate, excellent heater, it's AWD for snowzombievirus kaos, got insurance cover it on classic multicar policy (Hagerty) as now it's old enough 1998
I just need to get my money back. It owes me 400 notes. Can go today
Yes, the number plate is now fixed properly
Located M1 corridor Watford <> Luton
£7 a ticket or 3 for £20
I'm keeping the Alfa 156 Wagon for now
Well, OK, just a few brochures for sale, after having sorted through my pile over Christmas.
The postage price will vary according to weight, so the prices below exclude postage - we'll sort this out in PMs. Obviously, if anyone wants more than one, I'll send them together. All are in excellent condition, with some very minor age related creases.
If you saw the News 24 in the early hours you’ll have seen my next car is due since it’s back up north, so now the collection!
So all I know of this car is the make and model, colour and year. And that it had an MOT. What have I gotten myself into?
Alexia, play Mr Blue Sky...
