So, admittedly this was very much an impulse purchase. I was bidding on the car on eBay but got out-bid. I initially thought, sod it…. you win some you lose some.
A few days later I get a message from the seller saying that the person who had bid on the car hadn’t been in touch (not very surprised) so I said ‘give it 48hrs, he might get in touch’.
But the weekend came and alas no contact, so I say to my Dad that I’ll go down with cash in hand and offer them no more than £500 – seeing as it was now out of eBay and was a private sale.
So that is indeed what happened; I wouldn’t budge over £500 and a car was bought. With MOT and Tax! A convertible, you say: YES!
