Saturday Collection Thread - Collection happened, on the way back home in comfort and style

Recommended Posts

I've just viewed a house with my partner we are genuinely interested in and will need a very healthy deposit for. What better thing to do other than taking an early train to Birmingham (of all places) tomorrow to buy another car!

This has actually been in the making for a little while. After spotting the car on FB marketplace a few weeks ago it finally made it's way to Ebay more recently, with little interest shown there. No surprise considering nobody in the UK will have ever heard of one before. I was able to agree on a very reasonable price with the buyer. With this only being 1 of 3 known examples in the country, and also having the lowest mileage of any car I have ever owned, how could I say no...

Insurance is sorted, sale contracts printed soon, more tomorrow. For those interested, here's one hint: I never owned a car from this manufacturer before and it was advertised with these included...

Suzuki Cappuccino?

Would love to have one, they are all rust buckets at the money I'm willing to pay for a car though.

Just arriving in Birmingham now. Next leg will be by bus. A girl with excellent taste just complimented me on my shoes.

Half way back home, the journey so far has been pleasantly uneventful! The 4.5l V8 is buttery smooth and feels every bit like a 33k mile engine. The rear right brake caliper seems to stick somewhat as the wheel is fairly hot, it pulls slightly to the right as well so that'll need sorting eventually. The perished tire seems to hold up as well so let's see what happens on the last 100 miles.

And we made it! The rest of the trip was as smooth as the beginning! A few minor things to sort out here and there but what a buy this was. If you wanna see more of the car (and find out what the hell an Infiniti Q45 is) have a look at the fleet thread here in about an hour!

that is a car that suits chrome wheels, get them fitted asap

I left them at the sellers garage, I really didn't feel like paying extra for them. I'll see if I can find a set of appropriate BBS wheels though, maybe there's a set out there that's not over a grand...
