N is for New Car
We collected our new car today. So happy! It’s a 9yr old Vauxhall Astra, blue, with a 1.8l engine. Apart from that, if you want any more technical details then you’d have to ask Kevin….my mind glazes over when it comes to all things mechanical. Sorry…
We went to see it on Friday, decided we liked it so paid a deposit and negotiated a part exchange deal for our old Vectra as part of the bargain. We had decided to go and get it today and had a rather nice afternoon in Cleethorpes while we were out.
I was even allowed a drive on the way home….yeehaa!! Although driving at a limited speed of 50mph from Leeds to Milnrow on narrow lanes didn’t really give me much chance to test the engine (heh heh heh) it was a really lovely drive and I enjoyed the feeling of a CLEAN car in my hands for once.
Here she is, our new little cracker. (Please ignore the manky caravan parked next to it…we will be giving it a wash and brush up soon. Promise)
