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.
Petrol station 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.
