On the way home from a car show last Sunday, there we were doing a nice steady 70 on the A41 when the dashboard lit; the road behind disappeared in a cloud of smoke and there were some very loud clanging noises from under the bonnet.
There having been no previous warnings of anything untoward, the crack in the engine block that I can fit a finger into came as a bit of a surprise.
Taking into account lack of storage and virtually complete lack of funds in the foreseeable future, today sees Jessica Alfa heading for the scrapper.
At least I still have the Sportwagon but with 148,000 miles on the clock, for how much longer?
