Well, we’ve retrieved the Vectra from the menders. It runs, badly. It needs to warm up before you go anywhere, otherwise it stalls when you put it in gear (it’s an auto).We’re now left with what to do about it. It’s too expensive to repair. Should we spend money on investigative work in case there’s a case to be made? Or should we just let it rust away on the drive. Perhaps some kind scrap dealer will take pity on us and take it away leaving some cash in its place. So, cars are definitely a raw nerve at the moment. http://www.flickr.com/photos/snaptophobic/5008263037/in/set-72157615229888247/ One of these would do the trick, I think. Just a bit of sanding and varnishing to do every now and then.
