Driving on the M65 last night at about 70mph,
Suddenly lost all acceleration and sounded like
someone was banging a load of pans together.
Pulled over and called the breakdown services
Finally got home at 2.30am.
Daft as it seems i hoped the cam belt had jumped
No such luck.
Had my local indie to have a look/listen,
Broken con rod, cant envision paying £1200
for a recon engine plus fitting.
Even a second hand engine plus belts and *****
doing then fitting.
Going on holiday on Tuesday to Skiathos.
Have to think about it while away and come
up with a plan.
(can i have a v6 please mum)
On a side note while i was waiting for the breakdown truck
two very scary looking fellas pulled up in a golf gti and got out,
as the engine was off i couldnt wind the window down
so had to open the door a little apprehensively.
What a nice bloke, asked if he could help at all,
said he had driven past once and seen me so went off at the
next junction and came past again to see if i was there, then
went round again to stop and help.
I felt a guilty being so judgemental but still bummed a couple of cigs
off him and he even gave me a lighter.
