So now we are the proud owners of THREE cars, not all of them currently working but there we are. Honesty I thought I was bad on eBay, the most I've ever done is get over excited and buy a kitchen. This is what happens when Rich is left unsupervised for 10 straight hours!!
I can't tell you how long he has wanted another Cortina, he owned one when we where at Uni (hello to all who remember the faithful 'Yellow Peril', you know who you are!) about 10 years ago but was forced to sell it. Sadly the new garage is still on the todo list so the 'Blue Bastard' as I have suggested we call it, is living at his Mum and Dads (along with the kitchen). His parents must love him VERY MUCH!
So there we are, another huge messy project to under take. One day we'll actually finish something we start! Never mind, it may need a new clutch, brakes, headlights, fuel tank, front wings, welding and re-spraying but at least Rich get waves and thumbs up from other guys when driving it, which is basically the whole point of owning one as far as I can tell.
