For many years I only ever had second hand cars. They all ran ok, but had many miles on the clock. About 18 months after hobbitmum died, my car also went to meet its maker, and I had my inheritance money sitting in the bank - so I bit the bullet and splashed out on my very first "New" car. And when I picked it up, it had 7 miles on the clock... I still get a bit of a thrill from seeing that single figure!
