So I've finally succumbed and bought myself a sensible car. Well, actually it isn't that sensible. But it's certainly more sensible than what I have been driving. Which was a Leyland Daf camper van, which I painted to look like Godzilla. His original name - Freddie, after Camp Freddie in The Italian Job - was morphed into Fredzilla after his extreme makeover (Big up to my nephew Jake for the name).
So now I am looking for a new home for Fredzilla. He's unique. He's reliable. He's got not one, but two (yes, two) double beds. Perfect for the kids, dogging or when the mindnumbing desperation of camping in the rain in England makes you bicker incessantly with your other half (who wanted to go to a Greek island, but oh no, we had to stay in England in this fucking van), so you end up sleeping in separate beds to the sound of melodramatic whimpering.
He's got a hob with gas! He's got elec-trickery! A table! Seatbelts, front and rear!A toilet! A solar panel! Cupboards! And a top notch (well, quite good) CD player! He's a 2.5 diesel and he's waiting for you... If you're really lucky, I might even throw in a stuffed penguin (Not a real one). He's done about 125k miles and he's got about 5 months MOT (I think) and 6 months tax.
He's been my main method of transport for about 8 months now and has never missed a beat. He's been all round Devon & Cornwall, I've driven him to Suffolk a couple of times without any problems.
And now for the pictures... I haven't taken any inside ones yet, but will do in the next couple of days. Ladeeees and Gennelmen, may I introduce you to Fredzilla. Yours for a grand.
