PAST ITS PRIME

The poor Beastmobile seems to be ailing .
This car has put up with some terrible abuse over the years .
Mr C has borrowed in on numerous occasions , its usually delivered back looking like someone emptied the bins in it
Lloyd has chewed most of the fixtures and fittings at one time or another
Alfie has been sick in it.
Its been reversed into , keyed , shunted and still stalwartly flies backwards and forwards to Cafe C at least three times a week .
Now its making alarming squealing noises from the engine when you start it up and strange hicccups from the right hand rear wheel when you drive over 50 mph.
I will be checking it into the garage next week for a bit of TLC.
Lets hope it makes a speedy recovery :-(

I think the kindest thing would be to put it out of its misery.

Do you want to make a bid on my car?

Your car is far to 'pimped' for my taste Mr F , some would say the faux ermine seat covers and mink scatter cushions were a mite over the top not to mention he the custom chandelier and disco headlights....the Beast is a simple soul with simple tastes

The squealing from the engine will be your fan belt being too loose. Most noticeable when the engine is cold or the weather is damp. You can do this yourself as there's only one nut that needs to be loosened to tighten the belt.

Rear-wheel sounds like a wheel bearing.

Electrics! Does it happen when you have your headlights on in damp weather?
How's your big end?

Perhaps Lloyd's in the engine making squealing noises and Alfie's hicupping near the rear wheel.

I hope the Beastmobile makes a full recovery. It sucks not having your car. A rental just isn't the same--even if it is the latest model with all the fancy options.

I take it you've had some time to look at a few cars on line and imagined getting a new one, should you need to replace the Beastmobile. Perhaps you can get a Transformers model, one that can get you to work on time and blast away rude drivers on the road.

If I were you, I'd scrap the fucker and get me a bike.

Lord knows, it'd do you some good.

Thankfully, I'm not you.

I'll take care not to knock you off your bike at the lights as I pass you in our new car.

I usually illegally ride on the pavements anyway
