Got to laugh.
The guy who bought the MR2 from me (bit of a strange guy; possible drug dealer/junkie/alcy/night creature!), appeared at my door tonight.
He said i've just switched my phone on (after soooo many days) and got your messages!
I told him the story of my letter etc, and how it was all sorted.
Anyway, his pal/neighbour (with the dog) had told him i was selling Mini2, and he said he was interested.
I gave him the sales pitch and said to him to have a shot of it. He then reversed into my gate and took a little bit of paint off the back bumper!
He had a few tame miles in it, amazed by it's performance, eventually I got bored and asked him to pull in and took over at the wheel. I showed him what it can actually do. I'm not sure what has been done before me but it's a quick little car. It could do with a bigger ARB on the back, but controlling it sideways on PS3's sealed the deal i think, and he's coming back to buy it on Wednesday. I'm in no rush to sell and the paint damage isn't too bad.
Anyway, the GF can now look for some modern/soulless piece of non rusting, high mpg, piece of non sense, to clutter my launch pad , and i'm one small step closer to GP2.
The joy's of Gumtree, where you can convert your playstation into some scaffolding!
