Whilst I was in Turkey I was contacted by a member here about collecting a car. I'd done it before for shiters and thought 'yeah, why not'.
Upon arriving back here I started to worry as finances were so low, even a bus fare made me welch. I went straight back to work and the week was seriously crap. The earliest I got home was 7:30pm with 6am starts. Latest 9pm. I hadn't had chance to uwind properly after ariving back from Türkiya. I was shattered and had loads of stuff I needed to catch up on.
I'd asked work to 'end' me in Lincolnshire where this vehicle was located. Come yesterday, they didn't. I ended up in Bubsville aka: Derby. Up until this point everything seemed to be going wrong. I was constantly trying to catch up with myself and left other important things like contacting seller by the wayside plus I was critically low of funds that making Lincolnshire was going to be very difficult.
Anyhow. Thanks to Petrolize of whom had bought the vehicle I managed to get to the wilds of Lincolnshire and thw station carpark where I saw this;
Yep. This is what I was on my way to collect and be my ride home. Its a Golf GL 1.9 Turdbo Diesesel. The lady seller caught up with me after she accused someone else of being me. I guess I wasn't what she was expecting.
We met at the station car park where money was exchanged and papers signed away and I was soon winging my way back home. I had a look around the car and it seemed like an honest old thing.
2 hours and 120-odd miles later I arrived back home, so let's have a look at it;
As stated its an honest old thing. Needs a bit of a clean and ideally a service but it drives well and certainly has some poke to it.
I've never met Petrolize so he'll be another shiter I will be meeting soon. Same was for the PBK Ken and Cavcraft Alfa hadn't previously met them until I got he Alfa.
Over to you Petrolize...
