Our new wheels!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Well, we did it, we bought a car – and got a great deal for a… 1998 Mercedes A140.  It has 87,000 miles on it and is a ghastly colour of green, but as the old adage goes ‘it get you from point A to point B and has heat’, therefore it is a great car!!  But in the case it really is!!

Yesterday we took the bus to Diss to look at the car on advise from a friend.  We got off the bus, walked a couple of blocks and there is was.  We test drove it, found out it had a MOT (Motor Operational Test) for 6 months (which is OK), and that they wanted 1/2 of the price we had budgeted for a car – bonus!

So we bought it!

Look at the pics so you can see what it looks like.

    • We will be making numerous trips to visit you in Seven Oaks! Although, the cool part of this car is that the rear seats don’t just lay down, but they actually come right out. I hope the boxes will be okay, thanks for bring all our earthly goods over.

  6. Nice ride! I was hoping you’d have a pimped out ride to pick me up in! Less than a month!
