Re: I want your twin spark engine
The car has been regularly serviced, but there are leaks in it somewhere, which means that it needs to be regularly topped up with coolant. According to my garage there is rust underneath the engine, which i am guessing relates to the leaks, but i am not vaguely mechanical. I have had it since new, and i am a careful driver (though i say so myself!) so it has been well treated. It was my company car, and i bought it off them when i left the company. However, i have used it only very occasionally for the past three years. Mileage i think must be around 110 - 120,000 area, i think (sorry, at work at the moment ). It does run very nicely though.
I went for an MOT because i need to get it road taxed. (road tax expired on 30th September) . As it is untaxed i need to do something with it very quickly, simply as i dont have off-street parking. My garage reckoned there was too much to do, particularly since i dont really need a car. They said one of the lights needs doing, one back shock absorber is going, a number of things. So i have decided to get rid.
I have been offered £100 for it from someone up St Albans way (sight unseen) but i would prefer £150, and for someone to collect it.
If that still sounds interesting, let me know when you might be able to see it on Sunday.
