That time again.

Hello everybody, I hope you are all well and earning enough.
It’s been nearly 3 years since I decided to buy my cab and on the whole I have been very pleased with it.
But now that the warranty is running out I have decided to get another one.
The decision to do this was made a couple of weeks ago when my starter packed up and I was stuck outside the Royal Opera House for 4 hours waiting for an AA recovery truck that,  had the AA patrol looked and seen a wire had come off the starter rather than hit it with a big hammer and declare that it was dead, wasn’t needed.  2 minutes spent with Memet and I was back on the road!
So after a bit of a search around I ended up in Sth London in Ascotts, where I had a  chat with the sales team and settled on a 12 plate elegance which I should pick up on the 24th.
Talking about cabs,  my old TX1 has finally come to the end of the road.  I had it for about 7 years or so then sold it to Hexagon and rented it back for a while.
I  then rented a TX2 from them and Steve took over my old one and all was well until last week when Steve got stuck in Paddington station with a knackered gearbox. As she is nearly at the 15 year limit Hexagon can’t justify putting a new box in so she is off to ply for hire on the great rank in the sky.
Well thats me done for now, I’ll be back soon with more from the world of Delboy.
