And usually expensive  cry:

Mine goes 3 days after but then I have no 'the Boy' to keep in the standard he wishes to be accustomed to.  So seems I can afford 5k worth of repairs/bribes/whatever

If it's more than 500 it'll be off to the scrap yard for mine.  It's already costing me a grand in tax and insurance a year and it only does about 4,000 miles a year now

It does a lot of them very fast though  cloud9:

Nick doesn't take the owld Sierra to a proper garage like Uncle - no computer diagnostics or videos of the service process...  noooo:

It'll be some backstreet place where they use recycled engine oil and have a stock of parts that are in slightly better/newer condition than those on the car...
