….Musical, Yes-you should hear all the beeps he makes when you open the door, don’t belt up etc!….
….Lungs, Yes-they put brand new spanking charcoal and pollen filters in him, and his climate controlled cabin is superb!…..
So on Wednesday of this week, we picked up Julian’s new car. He has been waiting a long time for him-since March, that fateful day when a truck came round the corner too fast outside our house and whammed into Flabby, his 22 year old sporty Peugeot and wrote the thing off 😦
And last week the dealer found us what he hoped were 3 cars and I went along and chose this one. And my Star Wars mad man aptly named him-well, he is kind of a ‘dustbin on wheels shape’ now, isn’t he?!
For the petrol heads amongst you, Julian wanted the 12v engine, and the 120 bhp model, but basically R2D2, as we’ve called him, is a 207 1.4 vti Sport. He is nippy and light-what Julian describes as pokey! and I’m really enjoying being the passenger and the driver.
He’s got a whole host of ‘bells and whistles’, loads of airbags and side impact protection, and AB seems to like her little booster seat.
…..And best of all, he’s got that wonderful fresh valet ‘new car’ smell…..
