Blaze of Glory

Vehicles can seem like living breathing beings so that when a family car comes to the end of its life it can seem like the loss of a close relative.

I acquired our Vauxhall Astra Merit in 1997 from my late father-in-law who bought it a few months before he died.  It had been my main means of transport ever since taking me to work every day and, in the company of my wife and children, on numerous holidays in Britain and on the continent.

Now we have retired from our day jobs there is no need for my wife and I to have separate cars.  It was time to purchase something new we could both share and time for the Astra to go.  The children did not want it so after seeing a sign outside our local fire station asking for old cars that were no longer needed we decided that this was a fitting end for a long time faithful servant who had never let us down.

So long P233 LUK you have served us well and deserve to go out in a blaze of glory.
