As the frustration quickly takes over the warm glow of Spider ownership, my 98 refuses to move...
As of an hour ago, the engine starts, sounds preppy even, cluth in, engage 1st and nothing. Try a few revs, maybe I'm being too gentle, after all she is Italian!? Nothing but a lot of engine noise, which isnt so bad, but movement nil, nach, zilch, niento.
Aaaagh! Its my Maserti Quattroporte nightmare happening all over again. I owned one for a bout 5 years of which I enjoyed driving it maybe 3 times? "Caveat emptor" rings in m ear. Thank god I can walk away from this one without having committed the finanical Hari Kari on it as I did with the Maser.
The recovery vehicle arrives tomorrow and I shall send it back to my buyer and let him sort it out.
