This is a complete shot in the dark but I need to collect an armchair for the wife from Yeovil and bring it back to Kent. The chair is (cm) 83 x 96 x 95 so there is no way it will fit in the coupe...I knew there was a downside to owning the car I always wanted!:eek:

Does anyone fancy swapping my car for their small van, 4 x 4, estate car etc. for the day? Cheeky I know but this forum never ceases to surprise me!:bannana:

You must have heavy feet Pammy to need a footstool built like the Forth bridge.

You may be able to hire a van for a reasonable cost and avoid all the possible insurance hassles.

Damn! I just miss the point of these discussions. It's the Alzheimers again............:D

LOL!

You know the thing about getting to the top of the stairs and forgetting why you climbed them in the first place?

I don't even make the stairs nowadays before I forget :crazy:

A big thank-you to Graeme for the loan of his Brabus tuned Escort van.:bannana:

Only embarrassment was me having to ring up to check if the fuel gauge was working!:confused: It drinks diesel a little more abstemiously than my E320 does petrol!:D
