Re: Thinking of leaving the fold
Thanks for your good wishes guys, we are all fine. I had to take my daughter to A&E as her neck was very sore, I think the seat belt was across her neck instead of her shoulder. No lasting damage thank goodness and she has returned to work this morning.
I feel quite fed up about it all really, I know at the end of the day it's only a tin box but when you spend time and money on something you have a genuine interest in, it is a bit gutting when it's gone.
I feel pretty sure a 156 deisel is next, just for the sake of running costs. Money is prime at the mo, with daughter going to higher education etc. I do know I will miss the 166 so much, it's such a great car in so many ways, but I have to be realistic.I will still look in on the 166 forum of course and one day I would like to have a 3.2 as my "show/weekend" car. Anyway, who knows, life is full of suprises, a long forgotten aunt may leave me a couple of million next week!
Thanks again for your good wishes.
