Alfie has another encounter...

....of the Vauxhall Corsa kind. Front wing, indicator, valance and bonnet.
Opposite side to last time.

:-(

Only positive thing is I've not got around to painting him yet from the last
lot of pannels I put on.

He must just attract the other cars or something! Maybe you should fit
some big solid bumpers for next time!

Well I'm going to Cosford Air show in June, guess which one I'm NOT going
in!

I refused to let it fluster me, lifes too short, fortnight ago I was whisked
from the Dr's to the Medical assesment Unit by Ambulance having a suspected
Heart attack. Kind of reprioritised a few things for me. I'm alright now but
it certainly gave me a new focus (on life - not the car!).

Yeah, Just glad it was none of the other I'd have been more upset if it was.
Was parked on the street while I was finishing the front of the 101's wheel
carrier in the entrance to the Garage. Lady that did it has reversed out of
the driveway a thousand times without problems..... until Alfie stopped for
a breather on the opposite side of the street. Was very appoligetic and
apart from the 'should pay more attention' it is easily done.

It was an 'Oh no!' moment. I'm begining to recognise the sound of crunching
Range rover.

You do right, sounds scary in a scary sort of way.

you've really got to paint over that sign that says "aim here"

sorry to hear about your other troubles too - you need a project to focus on
and de-stress against ;-)

Re: Alfie has another encounter...

One of the reasons I drive such an old wreck, in that minor encounters do
make much difference, though the major ones still do unfortunatly.
