The end of an era…

Well today I finally got the car I crashed back in September towed away to that great scrapyard in the sky.

It had been looking very sad and pathetic outside my house for the last 3 months…

Here it is when I brought it…

And here it is on the tow truck being taken away.

In a way I suppose I am glad to be rid of it – my neighbours have been giving me a hard time about it being there recently, but its sad because this was the first car I ever brought and I never really got to drive it!

My driving has gotten a lot better since then and I am taking my practical driving test on November 24th!

Meanwhile, I did manage to obtain a similar Punto for about £60 ($100) which I fixed up with parts from the original grey one. However, I still haven’t been able to get it to pass its MOT because of problems with the water pump!

Here is Punto #2 – aka “The Blue One”!

If only I could seal the dastardly water pump, then I would be able to get it back on the road!

  1. Yes, the “coolant pump”, I had to replace it because the seal between the impeller and the drive pulley failed and now I can’t seem to get it to seal properly. I just need a dry day when I can take it off clean it up and put it back on!
