    My car died today. :crying:


    It started spluttering and steaming on a main road.
    My damn radiator has blown, and my battery is flat.

    Had to tow her home, which was a scary experience.



    Anyone wanna take a guess at how much this is gonna cost me?
    Won't find out til the moro though.

    If Uk mechanics are even remotely like French ones, I'd say about 50% more than the real price.

    I thought it was indestructible :crying:

    My mates old fiesta broke down on the motorway a week or so ago, it cost 105 to join the RAC (so the tow was free) and 85 to fix this little pipe that had split.

    If you need a new radiator that'll cost another 100ish for parts and labour.




    Mind, as you can probably tell, I know feck all about motors ... so the above is probably not that indicative.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    I know a guy, who knows a bloke...
    I'm guessing it'll cost roughly one hundred pound.

    And about a tenner for a new battery.

    Then it's about 60 to tax her, that needs done before Feb.

    And a conversion for the engine, to go from leaded to unleaded.
    That should be about 40.




    Send me all your money!!!

    If only cars were that simple.

    Right now, I'm getting ready to walk to the shops.

    The missus' Dad has got this thing that makes batteries work after they stop working, like magic it is.

    Maybe there are more than one of these gadgets
