End of an Era - Start of a new one
Well it had to happen some time.
We have had the Pajero for 6 years now
We got it for Marion's horses when we both had company cars
Then when I lost my company car it became my main mode of transport.
here it is in action, collecting wood ash.
we could go anywhere in it.
and considering it's 20 years old
I always thought she didn't look to bad.
Great in all weathers.
Ok that's going a bit far " rose tinted glasses and all"
she hated starting on a cold morning.
and quite often I'd give up and walk into the workshop
But being old she had issues
But she always pulled through
the number of times we thought, OK that's it.
she never got stuck in a field
and she was a real work horse
But as the years wear on and her joints started to ache,
she'd done 114,000 miles
Last year she blew a radiator
and Marion and Caddy were forced to resort to desperate
measures when we were given a Skoda courtesy car.
So Now that Marion has lost her company car
and the Hangover became our only mode of transport.
We decided to shop around for a replacement.
and here it is a Saab 93 Aerodeck 1.9tdi sport
she's 6 years old but looks like it's just rolled out of the showroom
twice as many miles per gallon
cheaper to run
and above all reliable.
we bought it from the Saab dealer in Yeovil
these guys did us a great deal, and took the Hangover in part exchange.
you can check out their web site here.
Thanks Guys we Love it.
