A COUPLE OF HEART STOPPING MOMENTS



Last week we sold Davy's pride and joy his Audi S6 Quattro with Lamborghini Gallardo 5.2 V10 engine. I had tried to sell it a couple of times before but something always went wrong which, at the time, was a relief because I couldn't seem to bring myself to sell it.

But, being pragmatic we told ourselves that it was only gathering dust and deteriorating in the garage, a car like that needed to be driven, and more to the point we had found a good use for the money. The time seemed right to sell it. Amazingly enough we found a buyer straight away and within a couple of days it was gone, leaving us all stunned and over emotional.

It was bought by a couple of "likely lad" dealers who "appreciated" the uniqueness of this beautiful car. One of them had even lost his father last Christmas after being taken ill with cancer in the October. De ja vu!

On Friday I opened the mail to find that I had been issued with a speeding ticket. This sent me into total meltdown because I am already maxed out, so goodbye licence until next March! I was a blubbering wreck until my granddaughter pointed out that at the time it was issued I was at the solicitors and the ticket was actually for Davy's car. It was clocked at 110 mph on our local by-pass. Phew.

So the car has gone from one rascal to another. Fitting.

Whew, the new owners were trying out the car, huh. Hopefully the date of the ticket was after the date the lads purchased the car. It is a beautiful car for sure.

The car is a beautiful looking machine, I would love it myself. Obviously the "lads" tried it out to see what it can do, and got caught in the process.
I'm glad you have a good alibi!

It's funny how, when the time is right, the universe facilitates these things happening.
Glad it worked out well.

Lovely car, Ann, I can see why it was Davy's pride and joy. I certainly goes like 'a bat out of hell'. I am certain you will be 'pardoned' by the law because you were not driving and could not have a better alibi if you tried since you were at the solicitors.

These boy racers do try it on a bit - no wonder the insurance premiums for under 25 males are so high.
Hugs ~ Eddie

110 mph? Obviously the bypass wasn't long enough for the lads to get out of second gear ...

The ticket was dated the day that they bought the car TechnoBabe. They were only a couple of miles away when they were caught on camera.
