Not Happy Thema Engine ****ed

I was on the way to Dave Nolan and my Thema developed the rattles of death, quickly followed by DEATH

Bottom end horror story i reckon

I have no manner of luck at all only bad luck

I need a drink.

sh*te thats awful luck Franko, hope you can sort it out, it'd be a shame to see such a gorgeous motor go.Had a dilemma with my Dedra recently, think its going to take alot more to get back on the road than i thought, but after some swearing, i calmed down & still fully intend to get her road worthy! There's too few Lancia around on Irish road to just let them die

i was thinking that too, i'd certainly feel a right sh*te if a day after i'd sold someone a car the engine went, i suppose though thats the risk we take buying private.
