Well im gonna have to drag the car back later but the sketch the son showed me points to the piston having snapped.
Looks likes its hands in pocket time again.
tell me about it...
Got a mint little car very reasonable for the wife, and as the son was wanting to drive. I said right you invest in half the car, and share it with your mother. But with you having it whenever you wanted, as she could use mine if needs be. Logic behind that was if he had brass in it, he would drive right in his head.
Anyway six weeks after passing his test he had it on it's roof stuffed in a ditch on a country lane, write off. Anyway come his 21st I bought him a tidy Ford Escort now he faired better with that, he managed to keep it on its wheels and off its roof for a good fourteen weeks. Going into the motorway services, but failing to negotiate the bend.....you can guess the rest, another write off.
I said right son, that's the last car I put under your arse. Because it appears to me it is just a case of how much do I need to spend until you manage to kill yourself.................You know what, when he did eventually have the money to buy his own, he would shave the odd wing mirror off, but never crashed em......mind you by then he had passed an advanced driving test whilst in the RAF Police .
