jurious: Cartoon of Stephen Briggs as Oberon with lyrics from "Jai Ho". (Jai Ho)
My car door's broken - it's dropped onto its hinges and is looking mightily unsafe. Still closes and locks but there's a rather big gap at the bottom of the door. :P Whoops...

MOT is also due. And service. So the question is... do I bother with all this servicing and crap, because I've got a very bad feeling about what it's all going to cost to repair, *or* do I buy a new run-around? I've seen a 1996 VW Polo for £375, MOT'd till next March at alocal dealer. If it's still available tomorrow, I might go and buy it - seriously. I've always wanted a VW and if it'll do me even for another year till finances (hopefully) sort themselves out, that'd be cool. Hopefully dog cage will fit in the back... (And hopefully the poor bastards will take pity on my fiesta and buy it off me! Heheh.)

And it's a VW, DAMN IT! Wanted a widdle VW for ages!!!

So I may have a new car before I go to London tomorrow. I prolly won't, but hey, it'd be a nice way to start my week off and not have to worry about the creaky ol' Fiesta any longer. I lub my widdle black Fiesta but I don't think he's worth spending sh!tloads of money on... :S I have abused the poor thing, though - I mean, doing 26,000+ miles in it in less than two years? Poor little beast.

Which leaves the most important conundrum: if I do wind up with a VW Polo, what shall I call it? :P And if I don't end up with it then I'll possibly be crying about repair and MOT costs in a few days!

*sigh* Cars... can't live with them,can't live without them...
