RIP Bessie.

22/2/1986 - 27/11/2004

Finally gave up one night in Hull. Made me miss Top Gear whilst I was standing outside for 3 hours whilst two AA service men tried their best to restart her. Alas, she barely made the drive back to my Grandma's, where she was towed away to the great scrap-heap in the sky. It was a tearful farewell, until I remembered what a complete and utter bitch that car was. Oh well.

I was privileged to have met her. *sniff*

I trust you retrieved the stereo.

Ho yus. The stereo is nicely settled inside the Micra now. It didn't take half as long to rip out as it did to put in...

What about the speakers? Didja gut the beast of those, too?

Yeah, the speakers are now in a plastic bag somewhere in my room. I'm a cheap, cheap bastard so I'm not about to scrap £30s worth of speakers...

I am pretty sure he posted them somewhere on here. If not, I am seeing cars in random posts.

I like pink... And it's the same colour that I've used in the past to block out my registration plate on every other picture I've taken.

Quiet, you. I happen to like my Micra...

...It was a choice between the Micra and an automatic Saxo with 90,000 miles on it, anyway.
