You did much better out of the deal!

The guy told me he'd call back if he couldn't get the gearbox fault to clear and we could swap back over.

I was diplomatic, I told him "yeah I'm a decent fellow, I'd honour that".

Then blocked his number.

God bless America.

How big are these? They have a lot of styling cues from the 70s/80s model which throws my sense of proportion. Great blingy colour for it too 111/10

Ha my old Buick had the cup holder that pulled out from the arm rest. 

Just by looking I can remember how the 'leather' feels, it won't ever warm up in winter so don't dress in shorts. 

Good swap.

But my heart tells me to keep it held in a death-grip and hiss like a xenomorph at anyone who tells me to sell it.

I rofled at this sentence. 

They've done that 90s thing where you take a 70s or 80s shape and soften the edges a bit like its been lightly melted. It's horrible but I kind of like it.

Lovely old beast, I remember floating about in my mate's 78, like cruising about in your living room.

Impractical, thirsty and already giving out 'challenegs'. It's a keeper. Fanatstic swap, I wish I had the cojones to even contemplate something this epic.

Are you familar with Leisure Suit Larry?

Scientifically speaking, "fucking hyooge".

Honestly though not as big as I thought. Not terribly wide, about as wide as a modern fat SUV, but quite long. Like.. two hot-hatches bumper to bumper long. It's longer than my Supra and that bastard is already really bloody long.

Those seats look fantastic, the whole car is brilliant but the interior looks like a good place to sit

Seats are ridiculously comfortable! The steering wheel though.. ugh.. I had to peel my hands off it after the drive with an audible noise like removing flypaper. Scrubbed my hands raw when I got back. How are some people so disgusting.

You did well out of that deal. I’m still struggling to think what kind of half wit swaps something that awesome for a bloody Range Rover!

Anyway, welcome to septic land yacht ownership. Nothing beats these!

A white caddy. I associate these with obese men dragging oxygen bottles and wearing sandals.

Northstar? Go on youtube and google northstar blue devil.

You are today's winner.
