Further news on the car

So we left off at that part of our narrative where I was going to have to pay £3000 for a new gearbox, or fork out rather more for a new car.

I've been speaking to my brother Richard (whom some of you will have met), who knows quite a bit about cars. It seems that his son's garage have someone in Plymouth who rebuilds gearboxes for them, for a very much more sensible price.

So on Monday I'm taking the car down to Devon and leaving it in Richard's care. They'll take the gearbox out of the car, send it down to their man in Plymouth who will rebuild it and send it back, and then they'll re-fit it into my car. All this for just a touch under a grand.
