FFS. Will I never learn?

Wetherspoons, Friday night, steak consumed along with several pitchers of Long Island iced tea is NOT the time to check the ‘for sale’ thread on your handheld communications device for new posts, kids.

Alarm duly set for 05.00.....

No. This is the time normal people get up

 

Amended.

Anyway, it’s all systems go. 
 

Dogs are confused...the two lads are wondering what’s afoot but the older girlie has decided whatever it is, it’s overrated and she’s gone back to bed...

The first stage of today’s journey is the ex- @paulplom Meriva which, incidentally, is providing sterling service as my garage courtesy car.

Bearing in mind it’ll be approaching 15.00 before we actually get to the subject of today’s fleet expansion and then there’s a six+ hour drive back home, this one is a two person mission.

Besides, it’s for her anyway so it seemed only fair.

Currently awaiting the 07.03 to Blackpool

      In nine hours (ish) I am collecting a new car. Some of you know what it is. Others don't.
      What is important at this time is that I am awake, and that means that poo count equals... one.

      As I am determined to reduce* my fleet, and it is over a week since my last collection, I am off again tomorrow. This should* mean there is only one outstanding collection that I hope to complete before the end of the year. Does give me an excuse not to do the end of year stats though...
      I have just loaded the straps into the Disco, hooked on the trailer and tested the lights ready for the off. Trailer required as despite being MOTed and running, it has a fault that prevents driving. It is likely to be dark when I leave, have a photo as it was getting dark tonight.

      As for the collectee, I have owned one many years ago, but at the opposite end of the trim/performance level, though did not drive it much. The last one I swapped for a 1987 V12 XJS, the latest one was purchased for scrap money.....

      An international kolleckshun in reverse, the car is located in the UK but I am not! My friends arrived from the Bahamas to stay in France for a couple of months so the first thing they did was to ask me to source transport. The only sensible* thing to do was to buy shite from here, so as I am heading home today, they are coming along to kollect. They will probably spend a week or so in the UK before returning to France.
      For added bonus shite points, the transport is of course the bargainous AS Saab of many warning lamps! Will update when I can, which may not be often!

      Good morning.
      I have been clearing out* for a while now. Today, a Volvo left. I have made tentative arrangements to have two others leave, so those are sold pending collection.
      Last week the Council Estate died at 5am when I was leaving work. The daily for some time, the ever reliable Montego EFi, started haemorraging fuel AND water in alarming amounts, as well as overheating in traffic as the fan switch has breathed it's last. A new water pump will be on order when I can be arsed but the fuel leak has been sorted.
      Bother.
      Neither Hyundai is currently MOT'd as my tame mechanic is on a bender.
      This can only mean one thing... I am boarding the first of four trains at 10.25am - IT'S NEW CAR SATURDAY!
       
      But first, a salute to a fallen comrade. Goodnight, sweet prince. 10-11-87 to 26-10-19.

      I told myself I don't need any more cars, I've got enough and I'll get some fixed and have loads to choose from.
      Then you end up working too many hours, one cars breaks the week after getting it through an MOT, then another breaks and you're back to one working/legal car. Instead of getting them fixed you end up browsing ebay and bidding on yet another car.
      Today in pictures:






       … good night folks.
