For Sale: Robin Reliant

It's time to get rid of the old girl. I mean my car, of course, not Gabby. Though if you give me an extra £50, I'm sure we might work something out. I've had some good times with this car (and with Gabby too) so I like to think it will go to a good owner. The picture is a bit deceptive. The blue is more of a cyan than you see here and thanks to a joy rider, it's currently parked at the bottom of Bangor's habour. What else can I say? It's the bargain of the year!


For Sale: Reliant Robin 1.0 Sport (petrol), manual, 1968 plate, solid roof (some rust and barnacles), aquamarine blue, tape deck, squeaky driver’s seat fully adjustable in two positions, mock leather interior, old rug, some body oil spillage on seats, RAC atlas (1982), collection of old Lib Dem stickers, includes fee brick to stick under wheels when parked on hill or slight incline, spare wheel (punctured), 290,000 miles, some water damage. £2000 new. Yours for £50 if willing to collect from bottom of Bangor’s harbour. The ladies will love it!

Chipster are you trying to upset Iain Dale ,can you do a swap with him,many moons ago I saw one of the plastic things hit the rear of a tanker on the A41 ,it was somebody cracking an eggshell,if it's been in harbour did you get a parking ticket.

I would never wish to upset Mr. Dale or anybody. I'm just a big hearted stripper from North Wales and you could never wish to find a more warm hearted blog than this one!

A swap would be most agreeable. Yes, it did get a ticket but that's fully paid. It's just a matter of getting a crane to lift it from the water. Are you interested? I'll knock an extra five pounds off it that makes a difference.

Sorry Chipster dont want it but I know where there is a diesel 1.8bmc that might fit it,its by Thurstaton beach on the Dee ,you would have to take it off its concrete base and you would have to check tide tables ,it did belong to a fishing boat ,of course you could take both to the scrappy
