Wallhouse motors

Hi humans!!
Well I cannot tell you what's been happening since Jim (Wallhouse) took me to his yard. Still I do feel at home: there are lots of my brother Beetles and cousin camper vans in various states of health here, I think Dave & Ray took some pics of the yard(s) and presumably they will get round to posting them shortly. I have had a lot of work done to get through the MOT. I won't tell you exactly what because Dave & Ray haven't seen me yet so I don't want to spoil their surprise.I just hope it's worth the money they've spent. Oh well,OK, I will give you a bit of the juice: Exhaust pipe, windscreen wiper mechanism, welding my bottom (!) and four new (new to me anyway) Empi style wheels and tyres.
Must get some pics done and get them all posted.
I should have been picked up Saturday (20th Oct?) but Dave has flown up to Scotland to see his girlfriend (wonder if she will like me? She probably won't like my inside-still a bit of a mess. Am I a girl? Woman? Female? Cars are usually female aren't they.
Oh by the way I am really disappointed no one has replied to my little quiz about my cosmetic changes (cosmetic surgery?). Tell you the truth a bit disappointed you lot haven't given me any replies at all!! Humans, bah!

Off to Wallhouse

Dave had arranged to drive me to Wallhouse in Erith. The plan was to get an MOT test to find out exactly what work was required, (another MOT?), get the work done and get the MOT certificate.

The best laid plans of mice and men.... The accelerator cable snapped somewhere along its legnth. Dave bought a new one up at Volkspares in Barnehurst (very handy) but could not thread it through.

Anyway someone came up from Wallhouse and carted me off to the workshop.

Dave is 'phoning up today, hopefully, to see how I am.No doubt he, or Ray will keep you posted.

On a more cheerful note this blog comes up 13th out of 2.8m on a Google search for "Beetle blog"

Let's hope next week brings some good news and I will be able to convey some good cheer!
