My last car (a tiny fiat cinquecento) has just recently been smashed in a rather annoying incedent that wasn't in any way my fault. I wasn't even in the car! However, i have struck lucky i getting a new car - i got this...
As you can tell from the age/price (although i got him to knock 200 off!) it's a little bit bttered and old, but it goes like a good'un, and i'm looking forward to tinkering with it lots (as i suspect i will have to!)
I'm not gonna use it as a taxi, but i will use it from time to time taking out the folks with learning disabilities i work with. It even comes with wheelchair ramps!
As for painting it, my sister is a graphic artist, as is my brother, and both are very adept at spray painting art, so we're gonna mask off the stickers and paint them with some cool designs. Not sure what yet, only bought it yesterday!
I haven't decided what i'll do with the interior, but i might tear it all out and make it a campervan at some point. Not sure. I have a bad habit of impulse buys!
I'm kinda wavering halfway between doind all sorts of silly things to it, painting it up and messin around with the interior, or just doing it up to look like a really nice taxi, just so i can drive past people flagging me down in the streets... Also i like the fact that when i drive it around all the real taxi drivers wave at me!
