    Well
    More than a little sad :Frown: to see my car drive off with a new owner tonight. Gave it a last wash and put fresh oil and filters in her for the new owner. Pleased they wanted me to leave the AOC sticker on though :Smile:

    Still look looking for my next petrol this time, my diesel has been great and a great introduction to Honda gave the new owner a lecture on keeping up oil changes and sent them off with about 12 litres of 0-30 spare air filters shortened belt i never got round to fitting and strict instructions but feeling glum and car less now :Frown:

    Still weekend soon and booked two days off to search for next motor

    Yep another Accord.

    Seen a few but OMG there are some sheds out there. Age is no issue I don't go by the reg number the condition is far more important to me and then prob mileage.

    Typically while I was contemplating making the change to the highly flammable carcinogenic also known as Petrol (or devils mouth wash) I missed out on two nice 2.4 Type-s a Grey one and a silver one, was not to fussed about the silver as would prefer any other colour (almost) to silver but my first and second choice would be gray then Blue..

    I am still mourning the passing of my car though but I know she will be looked after.

    No indeed you sound just like my wife bud
    I bought a make do motor which is in good condition and got a fair deal which has left me a reasonable amount to add to the savings for a 8th Generation and at least I am mobile again or will be when I pick it up. Will post a pic but no mick taking as I'm still getting over the loss of my oil burner :-(
