for sale - car one owner, any offers


A fabric-bodied 1929 Austin 12/4 car that has been in a garage for over 30 years is to be auctioned in Lincoln.
The car, which has only one previous owner, has been kept in a garage since 1978, but its engine still turns over and its tyres stay up when pumped.

I'll start off at £5, since it is in better condition than my Ford Cheesy

I was SAT in the Drivers seat and SWMBO was trying to NAVigate but kept taking me through Fords, thats why the fabric is so bad

Does the Srappage scheme apply here? Or perhaps part-exchange for a new toaster...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Uhmm! seems the roads are no better now though, still full of pot-holes.
