The first car I went to have a look at turned out to be the car I ended up buying. It's standing straight in front of my house! I have not only a vehicle, but also an insurance and a temporary parking permit. I have low levels of fuel, though, but probably enough to make it to a petrol station. Driving, that is, and not only a bike with a jerrycan.
So how did it go? Duncan advised me to go for it. The few things I was not sure of did not worry him. And then it probably is no reason for worry. So I phoned the lady, and talked bussiness on Sunday. I did not effectively buy it then: I could not take it with me without an insurance, and I would not be able to park it somewhere near my house without getting that permit. Furthermore, she wanted cash, and I can't get that much money out of a bank machine in one day. So monday was the first possibility! And we took it.
It was dark when I parked it! So no clear pics. They are expected soon. And for the curious: it's a '94 Ford Fiesta Freestyle. 5-doors. Blue with a grey bonnet. And I need to do some testdriving in daylight! All the controls are in strange places... I honked when I tried to switch on the light...
PS And then it was daylight again. There really IS a car standing there!
