It’s a right of passage to have that first car that’s just a little bit of a shit-box. It’s got wheels, doors and gets you from point A to B. But there’s always something wrong with it; no A/C, no heat, radio stuck on “500 Miles” etc… But it’s your first car and you deal with it.
But obviously, that first car is going to need a repair sooner, rather than later, and you’ll need to find the funds to pay for it. Thankfully, I had a buddy’s dad who was willing to help out with a repair or two, and it did it right.
But a dude from Manchester and his Peugeot 206 wasn’t so lucky.
