Damn and blast it, I know I said I was not going to talk about negative things on this blog, but today is unavoidable.
Yesterday I got a call from the paintshop, they were not going to get Marvin done in time for next weeks car show, so I collected it and re book for another time, no big deal there as he was trying to fit it in around other work.
So I duly collect Marvin drove home and today I swapped the front grille added some newer hub caps fitted some door rubbers etc, and then was going to wash and wax him ready for a suprise visit to the Shuttleworth collection tomorrow to meet some other Viva friends, alas no shampoo, no problem I popped down town and got some.
This is where it all went wrong, as I pulled out a nice Polish driver hit me in the nearside front and pushed me up the road a bit. OUCH! well thats my fault aint it? Ohh hang on before you make that call, the twit was on the wrong side of the bleedin road! Yes thats right couldnt speak english but his mate could, he blamed me 100%, but as it was pointed out to him that we drive on the other side of the road he shut up.
There is the small problem that the road he was driving on is a carpark road and not a “Queens highway” I am sure someone is going to hang me out to dry over it, namley the insurance company.
