My car has been picked up to have some supermarket car park rashes treated (I reckon I got clocked by a push chair hitting the bumber and taking the paint down to the plastic and scraped the wheel arch). Should be back at lunch time then I can put it up for sale
- what you getting next?
Car shopping is my favourite hobby
Keep thinking about buying either a XJS, a Jaguar Mk.2 / Daimler 250 V8, a TR6 or a Rover Vitesse (SD1 petrol injected V8 jobbie)
Well, my nice Merc Coupe has to go unfortunately (before anyone thinks I'm a plutocrat - it was 2nd hand, and no more expensive than replacing my then 8 year old Focus). I drive 22,000 a year, of which 15,000 is just going to the office and back, so comfort is important.
I finally qualified for a company car last year, so I have a VW Passat CC GT sitting on the drive (most people in other companies in similar roles would have got there 15 years ago - my company is not overly generous to its IT staff....).
I have to say that the CC is very nice - running something like an old Jag or Daimler would bankrupt me on the fuel bills alone! At GBP90 per week it's killing me as it is
If the housing market was better, I'd seriously consider moving much nearer to the office, even though that would mean downsizing (the whole reason I moved to Shropshire is that south Cheshire is very expensive).
