LOL a few hours you say ... blimey.. I normally count in years ... :lol: :lol:


Okay I sort of understand you wanted a 2 door, was a wee bit worried you were running before you could walk buying things blindly and throwing them away just as quickly :goodluck:

yes i've known a few people buy and sell a car the same day,so i'm quite restrained in comparison LOL although i have owned about 200 cars in my time so have had a few not stayed for long,a lot of them cheap moderns bought to sell on etc.for a bit of extra cash to fund classics and stuff.
i can be quite impulsive though when it comes to buying cars,if i like summat and i have the cash handy it often gets bought,a lot of these purchases though have been to save cars from getting broken or raced etc.
i am fairly particular nowadays when it comes to keeping a car for weekend shows etc,and these days only really go for original low ownership cars.

i've got someone coming to view the orange car tomorrow teatime for a friend of his who lives farther afield,so we will see how that goes. it has the usual loads of watchers on fleabay [160 at last check] but that means nowt really :roll:
and i need to get one of the tyre valves sorted tomorrow before he comes,as its gone down,when i got the tyres changed last week the lad forgot to change one of the valves and had already refitted the tyre,typically its gone down LOL so i'll take it back round tomorrow and get them to do it for nowt :)
