Newbie from Yorkshire, be gentle ;-)

Postby arcticfox » Thu Feb 24, 2011 8:45 pm

Hi there, just joined tonight, many thanks to the Admins for helping me get here :P

I live in East Yorkshire and currently own an ill Citroen Xsara 1.4LX, a thread asking for advice will follow somewhere, lol. Have had it since I bought it new in 2004 and before that had a Saxo 1.1 Desire. Both cars never let me down apart from the usual wear and tear e.g. tyres and exhaust.

Has sailed through 4 MOT's with only a broken door handle causing any failure and I definitely would buy another Citroen although there are no new models that I particularly like at the moment.

Anyway, time for me to look around and then appeal for help :cry:

I'm living in Goole which can only be described as SOC (Satans own country) but I'm originally from Central Scotland.

I do however like to get away at weekends to nicer parts of GOC with my car (when it works :cry: ) and do a spot of hillwalking and camping, for relaxation purposes :lol:

Haven't been to Goole for a very long time. Used to pass through frequently on our way to the Swedish ferries in Immingham and Hull. Or perhaps Grimsby - Grim being the appropriate part of the name. May be better now but wasn't a place that I would have liked to stay for long back then.

I'm originally from Whitby.
