This was it. This is where the money pit look up and began
to take notice. We took the car for its MOT, expecting there
to be some welding to pay for. There was, but the money pit
was to be disappointed this time as the bill was pretty minor
(less than one hundred and fifty pounds), around the same time
we also got four new-looking tyres and sorted out the spare.
It passed its MOT after the work was done and I was thrilled
to bits. My first car, a Beetle, and I could drive anywhere
I pleased! No more buses and trains, smelly old men hanging
around the bus stop asking for change (and that was only the drivers!)
I bought some underseal but found myself using very little of
it as most of the welding had been undersealed already.
