How much do you think a full restoration of a viva HA would cost? Too ill to do it myself so am giving up Soapbox to a friend to restore her for me.
Three cars, two fire engines, one steam roller, a wheelchair, and various sized hammers.... what could go wrong?!

Wrong! (Welcome to the world of the wealthy) It's really more the case of I'm curious how much other people have spent.

Should I expect to be able to buy that nice little xk8 run around while the soapbox is being restored? Should I be relieved that I don't have a morgage on this house? Should I sell my soul to the Lord?

Hi Clara, don't ask me for advice on your soul, I struggle to cope with my own. Anyway, people living in the world of the wealthy can afford to make there own mistakes, like buying a Viva HA HA HA!

Unfortunately, I live in the world of the unshaven underclasses and have to pay interest on my mistakes. Scrap the HA HA HA, put off road tyres on the Jag so they don't puncture when you run over council house kids, and spend more time with the estate blacksmith.
