A chance in a million.......

Post by Who2 » Tue Aug 09, 2016 11:11 am

I am selling my trusty old Wrangler Jeep 'Kaswar'..... "It's a Beast.

It's been all over Egypt, broken down many many times but has now faithfully been totally revamped and reconditioned.
14348

"This is your chance of a lifetime to acquire a 'genuine American Wrangler original.

We are not talking cheap here, I'll start at 65k but settle for 50k after we.... 'haggle somewhat!

It also has a sound-system to frighten the life out of people...
4 wheels one in each corner & as you can seen one on the back, for safety reasons..
14349
NB: Cash only no IOU's or CC's. we accept only $$$ £££ or Yen.

Reason for Sale ? "I can have more fun on an ATV or Quad Bike"

It's an antique we don't talk about it's age or milage.
But it's Youthful although vintage.. 8)

As no daft MMD's wish to con some OAP into buying my 'f***off classic antique jeep, 'sod them, I'm now not flogging it, they don't deserve it.


I'm now going to forgo alcohol & smokey comestibles to save up for my quad bike.
Then I'll then become 'the hawadja terror of the ash-felt.

So, these are the felucca sail makers making me a "jeep tent.... 8)

I don't have a MMD, but I gave the purchase of your jeep careful consideration. Ultimately I decided that, given your historic (and present ?) chosen lifestyle confessions, I'd rather trust a dodgy care sales man, in fact a very dodgy car sales man.

Well as, not to look a 'sailmaker-in-the-eye. (should have been 'gift horse in the mouth) I have decided we can recover around the gaff.
So off in the 'tuck tuck to the local Gurna upholsterer, he knows me from old.

After a load of 'wimmin haggling for 1/2 hour, chai & a few fags, we charge back with another 30 meters of 'Jeep wrap™
I can guarantee that the 'gaff will look like a margate beach scene or a harem.

And they said "No drink until we finish, which could be next week, we shall see..la whaala!...8)

Mailbags !
Not that Iv'e ever had to do it but, my mate Bruce had to, just to rub it in..
So here's the reverse of a silver mailbag, remembering him on his passing..

So, tomorrow is another day more sewing, music oh! and beer for me... 8)

I must admit my dear Dr, it's a handsome brute, The Jeep, that is.

When I was young, much younger than today, I was given the choice, I could either have a Morgan £5,000, MGB-GT £3,500, an old military Jeep £dirt cheap.. In the end although I loved the latter, I went for the MG, being that there was a long waiting list for a Morgan, being hand made, and all that. The purchase would be a gift, the rest I would have to pay.

I first went to check how much fully comp insurance, I was horrified £350, I then learnt that I was to tax the damn thing, a future annual M.O.T., pay to park it any time I'm in town, ............and then they had the cheek to tell me that before it would move I had to put something in it called petrol, at 87p per gallon, for Christ sake.

I am pleased to tell you I have never driven any car in my whole life. These days as I study traffic here in London, it has to be said that any good driver must always regard the driver in front and behind as idiots and never forget it, I never regretted making that decision early in life.


P.S. - It don't stop me admiring yer old banger though. :wi .

And lets not forget the idiot pedestrians wandering all over the road and stepping off kerbs, plus cyclists weaving about on your blind side and running red lights.

Got to challenge that Horus, pedestrians should always have the right of way. You lot sitting in your cars in air conditioned comfort or protected from the rain and cold should have a little more consideration for us poor pedestrians. We don't pollute and if we do meander across the road, stop suddenly in the middle to have a little contemplate well it's just the nature of the beast. :lol:
