Morning. Just finished work...
A few weeks ago whilst in a foreign country I bought some new (to me) chod, a version of which has been conspicious by its absence in my collection, so tomorrow I set off to fetch this vehicle I have never seen, WCPGW? The quickest public transport to travel the 400 miles there will take 9 hours, so I have decided to spend tomorrow night with a friend in a city I have never driven to or in, and last visited about 20 years ago. Should be fun.
My nearest public transport is 8 miles away, so the first 8 miles will be done in this, which will remain in the car park until I return...
Due to the ungodly hour I have to leave in the morning, I will not have time or inclination to post the breakfast shot, so have one of the breakfast I have prepared for tomorrow
If I can work out how to operate my new phone, I will attempt to update as the day(s) progress!

So a couple of weeks ago I was up at Mathewsons for the auction. I’d bid on a couple of things that didn’t meet reserve. Getting towards the end and this came through. Still didn’t meet reserve but got the call a couple of days later to say my bid had been accepted.
Anyway, we have a caravan at Primrose Valley so had arranged collection for today. First stint is just from Thornton-le-Dale to Filey which is about 18miles. Then tomorrow will be Filey to Leicester either via Humber bridge and Lincoln or Driffield then M18 and M1. Choice of route will depend on how it behaves today and how confident I am that it will be happy on the motorway.
Car collected now and refreshments of Tea and Scones consumed, we are off for petrol with Mrs Foxache following in the modern.
Hi all, i'm after some advice. I know there are at least a couple of us on here that reside over the channel and that the general wisdom level for collectioneering is pretty damn impressive. So what would your advice be in my situation?
How do I go about getting a hydraulic Citroen in unknown condition (only that it is certainly not roadworthy atm) from France, near the swiss border in Héricort to me in Somerset? I REALLY REALLY WANT IT, and am quite happy to pay. In an ideal world i'd just hire/purchase a trailer and rock on into France - but I cannot drive a trailer on my licence (to young...). I've used shiply before but i've been fucked around once and had success once. Are there alternatives?
I need to call the seller, but won't be able to until after work this evening - the ad says no emails (fucking irritating)
