Picked up Polo from Latvian tonight. Now this was cheap cos it was stuck in gear, this rang bells with me cos when we got Freds little Skoda that was stuck in 5th gear. Within about a quarter of a mile I had that sorted although 5th gear was unusable, bought him some bigger wheels to counteract.... Anyway this one was a little different as you could move the gearstick as normal but nowt happening. So off we go and big smile on gob as I realise its stuck in 5th. Got to about 20mph, clutch down, rev hard and just let clutch fly up. Big bang and yep, GEARS. His road was only about 50 yards long and he must have heard me going through the gears after I turned right at the end of his road. Wish I could have seen his face.
Serves him right, mean fecker removed the alloy wheels, radio, and the battery is crap. It ran out of petrol yesterday when I first saw it, think he must have put about a pint in it as light was still on and guage said empty. I splashed out and put a tenner in it.
I might still go and collect the one in Luton as well. That one is just out of MOT but has done zero miles since its last one.
