Wow, that's madness.

I would have been tamped to take the day off rather than finish when it's dark and head to airport. I used to do that kind of thing though ten years ago!

Wet and miserable. It was nice and dry in Dublin. I think I've taken a wrong turn.

Welcome to the shire of the UK! Though it's not raining in Wales.

Well, when you work next to the airport and have taken two days annual leave for four consecutive weeks (was dossing round the house last week) and need to do a load of things to be Brexit ready...you've just got to get on with things.

Besides, this detour will eat into half a day, but it's for the greater good.

On the way into town. 7 quid for a bus! That's almost half of the air fare! Bonkers!

I know, the pricing is all bonkers. Also, you weren't joking about it being wet!!!

Some mad roof on that Pug. I could understand having one in a less rainy, miserable country.

I dare say in wet miserable climates you need all the light you can get! Give me the roof, you can keep the pug though.

Didn't the ancients know not to build castles in roundabouts? At least in Edinburgh they put one next to the shops.

There's a good Bill Bailey joke about all the Little Chefs being built on ley lines, many thousands of years ago, and then the roads came in after and connected them all up...

The Glasgow airport bus is about £9 so be grateful :D 

If I was going to Glasgow Airport, I'd ring my mate in Renfrew for a lift to get the Jaaag and walk over to the BP to avoid the robbing bastard's pick up point charges ;):lol:

      Our collection story begins 21 years ago, the lovely Mrs Spart had just passed her test at the tender age of 17 and bought her first car, like most first cars it left a lasting impression. Unfortunately, as is often the way, life and finances took over and it had to go.
      Fast forward to a couple of months ago and while idly browsing one evening Mrs Spart entered the reg number of the car in question. Unbelievably, not only is it still on the road but it's for sale! 
      After a bit of a false start from myself, making contact with the seller, then him inexplicably not answering calls, texts or emails, Mrs Spart takes matters into her own hands. The seller is much more forthcoming and we make a date to view and potentially collect. That date is tomorrow!
      I've hired a flatbed trailer from a local company in Worksop and we're currently bedded down for the night in Alnwick, en-route to the land of the SVM, specifically, Perth. 
      For those in the mood for a guessing game I'll not reveal the model of car until tomorrow but suffice to say, it shares one particular part, at least very closely in design, with my LDV Convoy camper tow vehicle.
      Here we are just leaving Halfords in Worksop, as I forgot to take a rear plate to the trailer hire place. The man in Halfords was very helpful, bearing in mind the regulations regarding having a plate made. I was able to locate my insurance details on my phone and he used that info and my driving licence to whip up a rear plate.
      I note that according to davidfowler2000 that this collection is classed as 'close', it'll total 600+miles, so it's going to be enough for one weekend!

      It is car shopping eve.
      I've done the important research, namely look at past live collection capers.
      And found a suitable car (here's hoping I do/don't win the Gallant steed roffle)
      I have a lift in a shittier car than one to be viewed sorted, a rendezvous with the seller (not autoshite member I don't think)
      Buy criteria: If it's not a total shitbox and if I think it will get me to where I need to be for the next week or so while my BMW is being fettled with then it will be a buy.
      Live collection caper criteria as laid out by @Jim Bell on a previous collection caper:
      "Collection thread tick list.
       
      Breakfast pic
      Car pic
      Petrol station pic
      Woolard pic
      (And for bonus points)
      Pic of a dog
      A pic of a car worse than the one you're collecting. "
      I also believe a poo count is normally required. Does that requirement also include photo of results?
      I will be travelling with a dog more than likely in a shit car. Not sure what a woolard is to take a pic though.
      This thread will have the added live excitement that if when I get there and the guy is trying to sell me a nail I have to reject it and start again!
      This is my first buy since being on this forum so if I go off piste feel free to shit-post. Anyway it's nearly 11 at night car-shopping-eve so I am going to get some shut-eye (as much as one can with a 10-month-old who hates sleeping) so if my cunning plan to sleep is interloped upon by said plentyn (thats wain in Scotts, bairn in North Eastern and child-faced daemon in Englandshire-ish) I'll here reading posts no doubt. See you all in a minute then.

      Heading south on an empty stomach because honestly I just forgot to eat again. Making use of the stupid economic power of the Xantia and the extra hands of Father Tickman.
       
      Off we go...
