Ok, the bastards have done a number on me! I refer now to Brighton Council, who have flagged-up our street for their infamous parking scheme, which means that you have to cough up money to park outside your own home. Bastards! But, even greater bastardness, they are only allocating one resident's parking voucher per household, which means that either Raygun or I can't get one. And she needs her car more than I do and I have no wish to have to park my car in a non residents only area a bloody mile way.
So, anyone want to buy my car?
It's a black 2005 Chrysler Cruiser, whose name is Behemoth, with only 24,000 on the clock. I paid top dollar for it at the time, but I've had a look on the old internet and I reckon that 5500 (0r near offer) is all I'm going to get (and I still have some of the finance to pay off.. good grief!).
Mind you, I get a free bus pass next year, so bloody Brighton Council can pay for me to travel!

I'd love to, but what with fuel prices being the way they are, I'm sticking with the economy of the Golf TDi for belting up and down the motorway every day.

the Campbell offered to "steal it" and take it over to Devil's Dyke in the company of a can of petrol for insurance purposes, but I think I'll pass on that one.
I'll bet second hand cars are going to be selling VERY CHEAP in the next year

Unfortunately, i do not - as of yet - have a licence to drive, plus that kind of car isn't what i'd (or any insurance company) consider suitable for a first car... and i don't have 5k to hand right now, so sorry, Robert. I'm sure someone around here could give it a good home

It's got blacked windows at the back and still has the big skull on the front from the wedding. There might be a pic of it on the lostcarpark site, it's certainly on the wedding DVD. So, yes, it's about as Goth as you can get.
I am going to miss it.

SOLD TO THE RED DRAGON>
That's the fastest bit of business I have ever done in my life.
Now I will have to go and have a little cry and maybe give my car a cuddle.
And a wax.

This brings me rather swiftly to the point of selling my car..... 1998 Ford Puma. 1.7 ltr zetec engine. Nice motor. Goes like stink and is pretty cheap to run. Just gone though its MOT and got two new tyres, new exhaust. Silver paint. Nice car all over. Yours for 2000 or near offer.
