|Still shiny after all these years|
Two and a half years of motoring around NZ has cost us about £1000 in depreciation, £500 in insurance, £200 for new tyres and £150 for servicing so Horace has given us pretty cheap and completely reliable transport. It's made us realise the wisdom of buying old but good cars - ok you don't get all the latest gizmos but Horace was comfy, had aircon and a CD player and, of course, the roof bars for our amazing camping expeditions around New Zealand.
For the next couple of months we'll manage with buses and generous offers of loan cars for any trips to the shops and so we're pleased to have sold him now rather than worrying and potentially selling the car cheaply just as we were about to set sail in May.
Thanks to Claire for kindly putting the successful advert on Trade Me (the equivalent of eBay) for us!
