Entry for May 31, 2007

Yesterday someone came to look at my Opel Manta GT/E. I hadn’t realised how much she had deteriorated since being backed out of the garage to make way for a second hand kitchen, pending its installation in our kitchen. With hindsight, I should have rented some storage at Big Yellow and resisted Stephen when he got around me to put the Manta outside.

She has been leaking. She’s always leaked, right from new, but sitting on the driveway, she’s accumulated a lake in the left rear passenger footwell and the carpets throughout are damp and musty.

It’s a crying shame. She’s really a complete restoration job now and not just in need of a little TLC. I hope someone buys her and takes her on before she deteriorates any further.

Today’s picture is of her in happier times when she was still being driven.
