A pool 480?

Here you can talk about the joy owning a Volvo 480 brings. Non-technical discussions take place here, like what is the difference between an ES and a S version.

It's moved to Monday as the best trailer company proved to be one that isn't open at weekends. Al and I are driving to Northampton tomorrow where we'll have an overnight stay in the usual meet Travelodge. Monday, collect trailer at 8.30, 2.5 hours to collect the car, lunch, 2.5 hours back to deliver to jifflemon and drop off trailer, evening meal, 2.5 hours back to Norfolk. Fingers crossed it all goes according to schedule.
We are still short of target on the fund, but at least we have the purchase price. Now I just have to find out how to access it - there's a 480 shaped hole in our bank account :rofl:
