Sometimes, there is no easy answer. After much hard thought, I’ve decided that I just can’t get rid of the 2CV. It would be getting rid of a major part of who I am.
This leaves the Discovery in the firing line, as the Sirion is pretty much worthless but is still very useful. I can’t say I want to get rid of the Land Rover either, but needs must.
After all, the Discovery is just a toy really. Occasionally, it’s useful to haul something heavy about the place, but I can’t really justify keeping it on those grounds. It would be cheaper to just hire a van when needed. I absolutely love off-roading, but when funds are tight, it starts to look like a very expensive hobby.
Still, having taken 20 years to get my hands on a Disco, there is extreme reluctance to part with mine. Even though it still needs lots spending on it. Even though it drinks fuel in a rather alarming manner (compared to the other two little cars on the Seabrook fleet).
I’ve put the Discovery on the market at £945, hoping the winter weighting will allow me to get good money for it. It is a far better vehicle than it was when I bought it in July. If you’re interested, do let me know!
