Obviously loads of people own their own car.
Probably literally numbering into the thousands worldwide these days
I was about to start listing all the ones I knew
but I have a company car replaced every six months with a brand stinking new one. Plus I don't pay insurance or tax.
I've said it before but our children and grandchildren are going to be so so bitter about us in the future
Balonz? Yes. They'll hate balonz.
so I have to go through the indignity of driving an old car.
Payment/ownership situation not relevant. Particularly curious about LME types
I can't imagine why anyone in London would ever want to leave?
just in case they get kidnapped, manage to escape but have no way of getting back to london.
what sort of monied ponce would hire a car?
I'd abort and start again
i don't drive it that often though
2) Moving walkway to the London Pub
3) watch bamnan vids on youtube
Maybe I should cut my losses and try again
who owns somebody else's car:
main thread flawed
(keeping up my perfect record of writing off every car I've ever owned/occupied)
I'm still no clearer on whether or not a crumpet maker is a thing
although I can't drive due to medical issues, so my partner drives. We would be buggered without it, but they are a massive drain. We inherited it, we could never have afforded it on its own. Then you have insurance, tax, petrol. Crazy money, then the yearly anxiety of MOT and service and the phone call where they tell you it needs £1000 worth of work otherwise its a write off. Sometimes I think it would be easier just to avoid all that BS and ride bikes, get buses and get taxis around instead.
was not making this a '^This' thread
which owns a car. It works out better that way in terms of accounting etc.
