    The Wagon is outside the Service/MOT station.

    On arrival I was greeted royally but John and Kath.

    The Wagon is having a

    New cambelt, new tensioner and new water pump.

    A new clutch.

    The gearbox will be checked and over hauled where necessary (noisy 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears)

    New brake pads and handbrake shoes if necessary.

    A host of other, smaller stuff... fog light replacement, new side panel lens etc etc.

    A super garage... they will let me stay in the Wagon while the work is done!!

    A lovely lady even offered to do my washing... but I won't allow that!!! :Wink:

    It's not a garage you want, it's a magician.

    One things for sure and that's JJ black beast travels everywhere clocking a high mileage compared to most of ours, so he needs a good pit crew.

    Inside was designed by Dr Who :Wink: although its not a time machine, is it JJ?

    Don't want to worry you, and I'm sure it is not connected with you at all but two Welsh garage owners were seen entering this showroom. The sales manager greeted them with a vintage Dom Perignon. A jeroboam no less.

    Nothing to worry about, it's only £124,000 without the Smart.

    Blimey that would be a tight fit for JJ beast.

    I had a thought maybe this is why he's last to leave so we don't spot him loading up to the mother-ship:Wink::Laughing:

    A beautiful looking Wagon Brian but a bit "French" with the "e" on the end of the name!!!

    So you reckon my £47.50 is being used for a deposit then?


    You caught me out again John... you are as sharp as a barber's cut-throat...

    That wasn't rude old boy... being "sharp as a razor" means to are too clever for me... (for finding out why I always stay at the meets until every one else has gone...)
