A fond farewell today to my car, which has been in the family since 1999 and suffered both myself and my sister learning to drive in it. The mighty Fiat served me well, but in the end, living and working as I do in the middle of one of the most anti-car cities in England, it had to go.

My car (or one very much like it)

I sold it to We Buy Any Car (sponsors motoring on Dave), and they gave me fifty quid, which I shall be putting towards finally getting a smartphone.
