Well, some good news: the car has been fixed! Yay! It wasn’t too expensive either, I said that I was going to sell the car in a week and so my mechanic friend managed to find a second hand radiator from a scrapyard. (If we’d waited for a new one, it would have been next Monday before it arrived).
So that’s a relief – all that remains is to sell the car. Anyone want to buy a ‘V’ reg Hyundai Lantra which has done nearly 110,000 miles? Hmmm… maybe I should try autotrader :p
