OK, maybe not entirely serious, but I clocked one round the corner from my house this morning and they look brilliant. Had been off my radar but small fuel efficient stylish estate and seem to be plenty of cheap ones about, presumably comfy and fun to drive in a french sort of way - what's not to like?
1.4 petrol appeals with cheap tax/insurance/ulez friendly.
I love my 205 but nine times out of ten the CR-V gets used for practicality reasons. One of these looks like being a bit more jolly and efficient, but equally practical...
Ok, so I've discussed this with mods and they have said it's ok to go ahead.
There was a book where a writer who was living off his girlfriend's income, decided he was going to start trading his way up with swaps, writing about his experiences along the way, the thing he saw right in front of him was one red paperclip, so that's what he started with. It's a great story and a great book and I thought I would try it.
This thread is where I will attempt my "red paperclip" challenge and record anything interesting that happens along the way, meeting up to swap wherever possible, though me living in mid Wales does mean I'm a million miles from anyone, so this might not always be possible.
Not going to use a red paperclip as that's been done, so I'm going to start it off with.....

First my brother in law had a problem with his Volvo:
Then, earlier this week, someone broke into his house, found keys to his BMW and drove away in this:

BIL now urgently needs a reliable automatic estate car, MoTd and running, for up to £1k and located as close to High Wycombe as possible.
Does anyone know of a suitable steed?
Bit of an SOS here. I've got a couple of item's I've won on eBay in far flung locations and my work shedule has conspired to make collection difficult. I'd hoped to collect them on some upcoming cross country trip but unfortunately my employer has other ideas....
They have the flexibility to stand up the workforce to work 6 day weeks and have also extended our weekday working hours. They are blaming Brexit and trying to push production volumes as high as they can before the leave date.
I've got two collections outstanding and was wondering if theres anyone local who could collect on my behalf and either post onwards, or sit on them until I'm able to collect. Happy to cover any expenses. Petrol / Post / Beer Money.
The Items are industrial lights,
The first Item is in Prestatyn - The Seller has said collection from Chester is also a possibility, they are 3 Fluorescent tube lights.
The second Items is in Lewisham, SE14 6QD, South london. And is a pair of explosion proof lights [ PLAN IN PLACE ]
If your able to help please pm me.
