Quite a story, Rob. my grandpa and I tried to put the insurance on his name but then they asked who was going to drive the car and I guess we were just too honest...

Oh boy Julie.

And what he did was put things right that once went wrong, and his only hope, was that his next leap, would be the leap home :)

Good to hear you are driving again, Julie, but horrified to hear the price of your insurance. I hope that the No Claims Discount (NCD) builds up rapidly.

Like many others here, including Rob, I pay a better rate for full comprehensive and protected no clains. That is the highest vehicle rate offered and I do not lose my 75% NCD is I have a prrang or two, but I expect there would be a limit.

Similar to Rob, I run a 3.0 diesel 4 x 4 (not a Landie like him) and my annual insurance charge, including Tax, is £361 ($585 or €447)

Is it me, a very bright light, or is that the sun?

Very close to a Cafe shutdown, fumigate, deep clean and restock of food and vittals.

Ours was a 4 speed auto, 3 door which we had 11 years until rust underneath took it. The engine was unusual as it was a 1.3 multi fuel injected one, and, according to Ford's literature, nothing under a 1.6 L was used on automatics. Indeed they denied the car existed, but I suspect it was an experimental one.

It was as good as a 1.6 l for acceleration, which I thought was unusual ...
