Well, I worked Monday so i got Friday off, and so did dad. So we got up early, got the Trade It and searched for some cars.
There wasn’t many.
The only Saxo that was in my price range had already been sold, it was only eleven o’clock in the morning!
The other cars that we found were all answer phones, they must have been at work!
So me and dad jumped in the car and then drove along the A38, Gloucester Road, to, errm, Gloucester.
We stopped at several places on the way back, but most of the cars were too expensive, or they didn’t have anything that I was looking for.
Ok, I could go up a bit past Â£1000, but not too much, and only if it is something I definitely want.
In the evening, we went to see a car that was placed on the Trade Its website that morning.
The body work didn’t look that bad, it was black, there was a strange whine coming from the engine, possibly the alternator about to pack-in. There was also some water or oil in the boot, and the passenger door lock was broken.
It was un-taxed so for Â£700 pounds before adding tax it was a bit expensive. taxing it would of added an extra Â£100 or so.
Dads going off to look at cars while I’m at work, so there might be hope after all!
