Just a quick update. I've had to sell the Escort (thanks Ulster Bank)
My brother was good enough to offer me a fair price for it & not take advantage of the position I was in and even agreed to let me do any of the work on it that I am capable of - so on the up side I still get to flex my amateur petrol head muscles on it. So at least I can still do a bit of learning.
Once I get access to my money I'll be in the market for a nice cheap wee Ford to tinker with if anyone in the Northern Ireland area has any leads please feel free to pass them on.
[size=3]Ulster bank are a disaster mate, its time Ulster says NO! To Ulster Bank and move to another [/size]
[size=3]for those who are unaware of the history with Ulster bank, they had a computer error 3 weeks ago that left people without transfers in to their accounts, and debits or bills being paid out from peoples accounts were charged twice. and people are still being charged for lack of funds in their accounts even though it is the banks error that the funds are not available.[/size]
[size=3]I really cannot begin to emphasise how much i hate the banks and the banks hate me mate, [/size]
