Good luck sir
I have one question for you.
Because why not?
Also haha yeah this was very good timining @Microwave but amazingly unrelated-ish to that
So… as you all know I’ve been looking to make another unwise financial decision…
So here she is, my 1997 Volvo Olympian, 9.6L In-line 6 Turbo Diesel, ZF 4 Speed and about 70 seats, she’s a monster and will rival the Alfa in fuel consumption
I pick her up soon to take her to an MOT place, she’s officially insured and I’ll get a video of her driving and running soon
More pictures to come
Oh no!!! I’m so scared!
I know some families who would love that as a family car. Perfect for the Mormon family reunion.
Two things as I’ve said elsewhere:
- Get some proper 90s adverts on it.
- Eurotrip when?
Permission to call it the Vengabus.
How did you manage to insure it?
“Do not panic, student driver”
Automation UK tour 2018
I took my road test in a Volvo, it looked something like this:
Not the same truck, but similar looking. 12.7 liter engine and an Eaton Fuller 8 speed with a granny gear. I used another one for my classes which had a 14 liter engine and a Rockwell 10 speed in it. (And those trucks did say “Student Driver”)
We’ll have to decide on a name through poll at some point and yes there will be a big trip in it but maybe not for a while
Insurance was £350 for the whole year which also allows anyone over 25 to drive it and comes with breakdown cover
Better than my first quote of £1400 without all of that
No there is no decision to be made surely, Vengabus has been declared.
I was going to call it the Bang Bus but Vengabus it is
*anyone over 25 on the public roads provided they hold a full Category D license
Have a picture someone I know took on it’s last day out and about doing Christmas Eve rail replacement, awesome picture it is
+100 points for the advert
Brick styling… check.
Loads of space… check.
I6 diesel… check.
Well, it seems you’ve bought a classic reasonable Volvo
And don’t forget the safety.
When the bus hits a car, it explodes, and the bus remains intact? Check!
Oh no! chav-driving on slot!
