So it transpires that the local scrappy no longer allows people to go and have a 'rummage' which is a shame as it was a great place and I'm sure one of the last 'traditional' scrappies that you could go in and remove parts yourself.  :( 

Instead I had another fiddle with the gear lever mechanism and have got it working.... for now....  ::)

It had about 1000 miles on it when we picked it up, and plenty of jousting marks.

I'm glad to get out of it, what a heap of crap, and its knackered my back again.

We opened the bonnet, and were surprised to see a turbo, but it didn't help.  Not actually convinced it was working.

Put some fuel in it.  Last time I put fuel in it was up around Durham in March :o

Got the pussy all moist and covered in in white stuff.

Then realised, whilst carry it across the kitchen, my bucket has a huge hole in. So half arsed job.


I had intended to wash the Omega, forgetting she was away for the weekend.


To dry the pussy, I took it for a gentle* drive around, and also a stint on the motorway to let it regen as its only done short journeys lately.

Except when a frisky looking Aston was weaving all over my arse, at which point, when the road opened up and I could get past the traffic, we gunned it, but come braking and corners, he had peas for testicles, and I left him.  Very disappointed. Typical Silverstone visitor, all the gear but no idea.  Much like another Silverstone visitor I saw about 20mins later - I couldn't make out if it was an MX5 or MR2 it was that bashed on every panel.  I'm guessing he swapped ends a few times coming off the roundabout at Baynards Green.

Topped up the windscreen washer bottle on the V70 and contemplated whether to replace the shagged Uniroyal Rainsports that it's currently wearing like for like or take my usual cheap, black and round approach.  :-\
