Ooooh, pics or make/model please Mr P! I have some very fond memories from my first job out of college of a Toshiba 'luggable' - brilliant keyboard coupled with a mad orange and black monochrome screen.

Afternoon - me again :D

What is it with this area and cars?

Current position: I'm interested in a car (Previa) in Grimsby - just wondering if anyone local enough would be able/willing to have a quick gander at it before I jump on a train......

....and before you ask there have been a total of NO suitable vehicles available north of Hadrian's Wall in the last 6 months :cry:

Stick to two kids and a dog and you won't have this problem.

Aha - Well one of the reasons for wanting to be canny with my proposed purchase is to retain sufficient cash :shock: for 1978 Bay Window Camper restoration 8) .....currently laguishing unloved in my garage :cry:

Fingers crossed one of your people is on the case :D
