Wife says we have no room on the drive...

 

Were I to consult Mystic Meg there’s a good chance she’d see me parking the Galaxy and Voyager side by side and turning them into some kind of two room homeless shelter to live in once evicted from the house!

 

I’m hoping the carrier bag hooks on the Voyager rear seat will seal the deal with wifey I win :)

 

This maybe offset by her being unable to use the passenger window to escape my legendary arse guffs though.

My parents had one of these for a while years ago. I was amazed how much like driving a dormer bungalow it was. Comfy seats though.

I always had a liking for these. Insurance is over 300 quid extra for remaining 7 months!

 

Spoil yaself!

Congleton is about 7 tanks of pez away by my reckoning (253 miles).

220 miles for me.. just 6 tanks. Bargainous!

 

All joking aside, I've never even fuelled an LPG vehicle before now, so it could be an interesting* new experience. I wonder if there's even any LPG filling station anywhere near home.

 

Edit: Google says no.

I've always avoided it in the past because they've all been an hour's drive away... But now I work virtually next door to somewhere that sells it.

Still put off by 99% of installations looking like you need to kneel to fill them :/

I'm happy to kneel if it saves me money.

This one seems to be more of a "kneel so that it costs about the same as a normal car" rather than actually *saving* money.

 

I'd hate to run one on Pez.

TBF I'd have to kneel to clear out the roof gutters, being a pointlessly lanky Easter Island statue halfwit clown.

 

Anyway, there seems to be a lot of excuses here and not so much of the buying. This is an absolute barg by any measure of bargedness.

You could spend £6 on a ticket for this or £6 on six pounds worth of something that isn't this.

Alternatively, £350 would buy you this second hand seven seat leather sofa...

...or seven leathery seats that come with heating, lights, a stereo and a humping great engine, all contained within a mobile metal box.

The connection at the filler is a gas tight seal - once locked on, you hold in a button on the pump (usually at head height) and wait for it to fill. Not so uncivilized, really.

Is it frowned upon to headbutt the stop switch?

There is reasonably close if you are still near Pullborough, the fuels place that does bulk gas out the back of Billingshurst but they're stupidly expensive 80?ppl

Otherwise loads in the Horsham area, Pease Pottage services are usually the cheapest 64ppl

I've just found out I have a filling station less than 2 miles away. Oh dear.

 

How many tickets did you just ask for?

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....

      Going to roffle for a fiver a ticket, two for £8, 3 for £11
      In good working order apart from the head gasket. 
      Put the ventilated header tank cap on, take it easy and bring spare water and you will be able to drive it home. 
       
      It doesn't overheat, just pressure in the cooling system. Cylinder compression is good.

      This has been dragging with the end tantalisingly in sight, so inspired by the worthy @SRi05 I'll pop it in here and see if anyone who doesn't visit 'Shite For Sale' is interested...
       
      Quoting now...
       
      After having recently gone through the fun* of selling a car on eBay, I thought I'd try my luck on here. I only bought this a couple of weeks ago on a whim, thinking it would be ideal for shooting down to France with the wife and the dog to visit the in-laws, but the wife has taken against it HARD due to the lack of air-con (she's not worried about us - it's the dog!). So it has to go.
      Bad bits first, as is AS tradition. The A/C really is gone. No amount of re-gassing will fix this! A few patches of rust here and there - none look bad enough for welding. A bit of rust converter and bondo and job jobbed was my plan. Laquer is starting to peel in a few places. The remote central locking doesn't always unlock the passenger side door (although it does always seem to lock it, which is odd). Tailgate has a decent dent in it. Nothing to do with me, it came free with the car. Tailgate still works fine, though.
      Good bits. Maybe it has been too long since I was last in a rear-wheel drive, but it feels to me like it pulls away from the line very nicely. The six-speed box feels nice and precise, and lets you trundle along at 70mph with the engine only doing about two and a half thousand revs (not had it long enough to really measure fuel efficiency). MOT until Feb and taxed to get you home.
      Located in Ipswich. I was thinking £9 per ticket, or two for £16, three for £21. Any takers?
       
      PRICE DROP !!!!
      £8 for one, £14 for two, £19 for three. Buy Buy Buy!!!!

      Well after almost 11 years it time to part ways with my Cavalier as recent changes mean I'm needing a estate car now. 
      It's in tidy condition for it age and years but is no show car, though saying that I get plenty of nice comments off people about it which is nice!  Will be really sad to see it go as it's been a fantastic car to me and has always been a dependable friend. Holidays, house moves, days out, road trips buying tat or being on family taxi duty. It does it all without fuss. 
      I have folders full of various receipts and bills for work carried out over the years and have got various spares mainly used that I can include if wanted.  I also have a compete spare 1.8 engine with 74,000 miles available too. 
      Mileage is 204,000 but I did replace the engine with a secondhand unit about a year after first buying it with similar miles due to a oil pressure fault.  Though I've seen these Cavaliers with over  250,000+ miles and I have no issues with driving this car anywhere as these are hardy things. 
      I've always serviced the car each year and always use a quality 15w40 oil.   In recent years it had all new shocks/ front springs and top mounts. Front Brakes and had various other parts replaced as needed to keep it ticking over. 
      Has Pas, leccy front windows and central locking. Also has working Towbar see pic bellow. 
      There so much more I can say but I'd be here all night!
      Currently awaiting some Mot repairs to sort out emissions [ replace front downpipe ] and some minor welding to the rear floor pan . It should be ready for me to collect by Friday.  Any questions just ask away. Will add some pictures over the weekend once I've got the Car back. Still Insured till the end of May and Taxed etc.
