Captain Colonial posted a topic in Tech Talk...considering selling my lovely classic narrow CVH powered Westfield SEi. .... ...and buying a different one. I've had The Wench for 16 years now and loved her to bits, but the time has come for something a bit newer and with a newer engine, an injected Zetec or Duratec (sorry, no BEC, MX-5 engine or V8). As much as I love my girl, and also the thought of sticking a new engine into her and giving her a change of heart, the cold hard logic is that it's better to buy a correctly spec'd car that matches my needs now, and find a new home for my girl, someone who needs a very good, sorted entry level Westfield that they can just get in and drive. Frankly, it's breaking my heart to type this, but I know it makes sense. I'm patient enough to sell her and wait for the right replacement that doesn't require me pouring money into, just get in and thrash it. One element that might affect my timing is the fact that my old girl will have passed her IVA 25 years ago on 1st December, which could make it more attractive to buyers on the Continent. Above all, I want my baby to go to a proper, loving home and carry on bringing happiness to her new owner. Luckily, I'm a patient sort of chap and not in a desperate hurry, but that's what I'm considering this year. Call me an idiot or call me sensible, but there we are.
