Ebid,an alternative to Ebay?.

I have had some success selling on one of the alternative auction site.Called ebid it's based in the UK.Its been going some time and its lower fees make it a better bet for the small seller.Ebay is still the market leader by a long way but some of the alternatives might be worth a try.

Here comes the sun.

I went to the Yarmouth meeting of the East Coast Pirates car club.I took the old transit motorhome for a run out.The weather was pretty awfull so there weren't many ther.Still had a coffee and a chat,mainly about old cars,young women and life in general.
I was going to take the new toy a P5B rover but thats having a wee bit of cosmetic surgery so it will have to wait for a bit.Not so long back the same site was overun with minis,you realise now how few of these there are about.

The great fire of Lowestoft

Wessex foods in Lowestoft has burnt down.The fire was apparently spectacular,I got diverted on the way to the MOT station,lots of smoke could still be seen and that was twelve hours after the fire and it had been raining heavily all day.Fire engines form all over East Anglia were called in and some were still there twenty four hours after the fire started.
The MOT was pretty tame by comparison,a couple of advisories,one to my annoyance was a bit of play in a wheel bearing that I could have adjusted abit better.It took me over half an hour to get home,traffic round the bascule bridge was horrendous.

First run out for the P5B

I bought a Rover P5B a few weeks back.It had engine problems but once sorted I took it to a local car club meeting in yarmouth.I was suprised at the amount of attention it attracted.They were a popular car in their day and seem to be pretty popular even thirty odd years later.

A Lowestoft landmark gets ready to move.

The huge construction in SLPs yard in lowestoft has been moved,ready for loading onto a massive sea going barge.Its said that SLP will then cease to exist,having already laid off most of their staff.
A terrible shame.,more for jobs lost in Lowestoft which has suffered many already.
