Member car:

Had a 33 1.7 QV

While I was away on a business trip...

Well just got back from a 5 week business trip to find out my 33 was in the workshop being repaired

My other half crashed my impeccable 33. Luckily nothing happened to her, thank god, as she is almost 8 months pregnant.

Her first bump in 18 years!

Bonnet was crumpled, side panel smashed, 1 headlight and 2 side lights destroyed, front bumper destroyed, radiator and fan crumpled in, and some other parts inside.

Cost an arm an a leg to fix. Not something you need just before having your first child.
But anyway these things happen.

He did a beautiful job of reshaping all the panels and remoulding the front bumper etc. Headlights cost a fortune!!

Went to pick it up last night, was ******* down, turned on the wipers and there was no power going to them, then the fuse blew.

It was like they had no power and then burned out. Very strange.

Could this be the motors or just insufficient current to them?

Back to the garage last night anyway. Just awaiting the call from him.
