   FINALLY MY NAN HAS COME TO TERMS WITH PARTING WITH HER MUCH LOVED CAR. MY NAN UNDERWENT TWO HIP REPLACEMENT'S AND REALISED SHE WOULD NO LONGER BE ABLE TO DRIVE THE CAR. SO SHE COULD DO WITH THE MONEY TO MAKE HER HOUSE (OR SHALL WE SAY GROUND FLOOR MORE FRIENDLY).

   WERE SAD TO SEE IT GO BUT THAT'S LIFE. THIS IS THE ONLY REASON SHE IS SELLING THE CAR.

THE CAR UNDERWENT LESS THAN 2 MONTHS AGO FRESH RESPRAY JOB IN THE ORIGINAL COLOUR AND MUCH MUCH MORE READ THE GOOD AND THE BAD.
