Van

It did go out to one of the islands for about a year after I sold it.
I think that the guy I sold it to swapped it for an RS focus then after about a year he bought it back form the same guy.

So the person selling it at present is the person who bought it from me.

Had plenty of fun in that thing.!!!

Its for Sale In BOLTON....
By the time I'd have pressed the "Buttons" (about 1/2 a mili second) that van would be up on bricks, have no wheels and be a dog rescue home for Whippets and a hang out for Wine O's with cans of Tetleys..

Fair comment Steve, but would having "my head inserted up my arse what ever my occupation" make me an honourable "Lancastrian" or would I have just mingled in with the Yorkshire folk

Follow this link they do great flights to "Up Norf"
