    it is a pain in the arse when you want something from far away,i was lucky and bought my car from a chap 6 miles away and he drove it to my house and then i drove him home,seems cheaper to get a mate to take you up for petrol money.

    I could drive up via Birmingham on Tuesday evening, as I'm going from London to Co. Durham, don't mind having a passenger. It's about 1/2 an hour further north from my house to Durham city itself so don't mind driving you up there if you just fling in a couple of quid to cover the extra mileage that I wasn't doing already. There's also a spare room at my house if you need to stop over, or you can drive on through the night it's entirely up to you mate. Anything to help out a fellow AOC member.
