End of a long love affair.
« on: 09 March 2021, 14:23:50 »


Very reluctantly, I've had to sell on my pride and joy, (Y reg. 3.2l Elite saloon in rare silver), through not being physically capable of wielding spanners and clambering over and under any more due to arthritis and spinal stenosis problems.
It only went on Saturday and I miss it already. It had been "sorned" for the last 9 months, and my younger son listed it on ebay for me with a starting price of £700, and it sold for a final bid of £1040. I was quite chuffed with that. Because of Covid 19 restrictions the purchaser couldn't arrange for it to be trailored away for 6 weeks, but it's gone now and the money's in the bank.
He apparently has 4 other Omegas, and rang today in ecstasy because it sailed through an MOT "with flying colours and is a fantastic car".
I'm now starting the grieving process and looking for something to fill the large gap on the property frontage.
Hey ho! Such is life beyond eighty.

This is why I still have mine. I know I will miss it when it goes, so Im delaying it as long as I can. I doubt I will ever have a better car now.

Know exactly how you feel sold mine a few years back had a V8 Merc & now a Range Rover but pound for pound rate the Omega as my best car ever, good luck with your replacement.

I feel for you and cannot imagine the emotions you shyboy are going through in not having a very special car, an 3.2 Omega Elite. :'( :'( :'(

I am hoping I can keep mine going for as long as possible, to death or until I give up driving. :D ;)
