Reverse International Kolleckshun Fred

Recommended Posts

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!

Kolleckshunning Kollected! Sorry for the lack of updates but only stopped twice since the tunnel, once to kollect  the mota and once to fuel them both up less than 5 miles from kolleckshun. Non stop from Derby to chez Saabnut.gb - just under 1000 miles today in 17 hours and well under 2 tanks of Derv. The Saab took 51 litres at Derby and considerably more left in the tank now. Considering it was well loaded, I was not hanging about (flashed by a new camera in France :-( ) and the weather I am well happy with that. Some heavy rain encountered on the journey but surprisingly little wind - it is still, dry and mild here.

A pic of the Kollectshun - as my mate is not of "the beige" and not really aware of it, he took some convincing that Woollarding is actually a thing :-)

Good to meet Neal Clark of this parish, all be it a flying visit. Will provide updates on the Pug as and when I get them.

      Well shit, that's over 9 threats!
      A triple collection thread.  All MOTd. All possibly starting. All presumably stopping.
      The collection train starts in Glasgow at 12.15 picking up 2x shiters. A further shiter will be collected on the way. 
      4 shiters. 440 miles. 7hrs. Live updates in 3hrs if anyone can be bothered posting

      Well lets hope there's joy to be had somewhere.
      I think it's only been 2 weeks since the last car left so of course it's time to get another one... I didn't even know I wanted it until midnight Thursday/Friday. The alarm rings at 6am tomorrow, this will be the longest distance (non-international) collection yet, and the second oldest car I have ever owned...

      Just when you thought it was safe to look at a collection thread. Soon will follow a dramatic story of a desperate man with a quest, against all odds, to have a running car in his possession by the end of the day.  He will battle crowds of shoppers, day trippers and other hazards…

      What actually will follow is a man heading across London on several trains and (hopefully) driving back around the M25 to put his new purchase into storage and SORNing it until 1st of July. It won’t be exciting, and it may put you to sleep after your Sunday roast.
      Poo count = 0
      antihistamine count = 1
      Extreme nasal excretions count (courtesy of @mitsisigma01) = 3

      Yes, I admit it. I have a problem. Far too many problems, in fact, and all four wheeled.
      Unfortunately, I also have a fully equipped workshop, plenty of parking spaces and a fully comprehensive trader’s policy, all of which combine to only facilitate my problem.
      Here we go again….

      Seems like it's that time of the month again...
      At least the weather is nice and should stay like this on the way home.
      No photos of breakfast, it was a bowl of cereal. 
      Poo count zero.
