New car
« on: 29 November 2012, 10:41:26 »

Well unfortunately time has come to lose the Omega.
I have had it almost 4 very happy years but the cost of running it has got to be realistically looked at. If finances were ok I would love to keep it.
I have just collected an 02 Vectra 2.0DTi, not as comfortable as the Miggie but not bad but it did 50mpg on the way home and I could soon get used to that plus cheaper insurance and cheaper tax.
I thought I would post a couple of pictures up - it is still a Vauxhall so I hope I can still come to the meets occasionally especially Newent!!

Shame you can't keep the omega, but the replacement looks tidy  :y
Was the omega sold or sent to the big scrapyard in the sky?

It's up for sale at the moment, if no one wants it I'll try the bay of E and if all else fails get what I can from the scrapyard.....
I realise it's not worth much but it must be of use to someone hopefully.

If I can go to Newent in a Merc  ::) ::) I'm sure you'll be OK in a Vectra  :y :y

(Fingers crossed .... I'l bring my Omega next year  ;) &  maybe I'll be allowed in the photo line up - they wouldn't let me this time  ???)
