Go-ing, Go-ing, Go-Go-Gone!

The salvage man came to collect the Go-Go on Monday. He arrived driving a huge 6 car transporter which Nipper would have loved but sadly he was at nursery and missed it.


I asked whether they recycle the car parts or sell them on etc and he went into a lengthy explanation about it all. I thought the Go-Go might live on if only in some very small way but it soon became clear that she just isn't worth the trouble and she's off to the crusher. I was so sad to see her go.

And here is her replacement:
Affectionately known as 'Nissy' she is another Nissan Micra, has done roughly the same mileage but is half the age of the Go-Go. I love the colour (a terribly girlie thing to say, I know!) and she has shiney new hubcaps. She also has a new MOT and a full Nissan service history - just so you know I didn't get her just for her looks! I think I'm going to love her as much as I loved the Go-Go.

  3. Awww, Nissy is lovely. I almost got a little Nissan Micra as my car, but the horrible man in the garage let another man gazump me on it :-O This was AFTER we had shook on the deal. I was not a happy bunny. Anyway, I ended up with my little Maisie (a Toyota) and am happy with her - she's fab. Hope you have many happy years with Nissy. x

  6. Lovely to get a new car. Only ever had one myself, and that was sold when we left SA... Enjoy making friends with yours.

  7. Good cars can become like good friends. They have such a history of trips, conversations and memories.
