I don't think it is a reflection on my teaching, but her driving has definitely improved. Its probably just being able to get out and practice more often in a more relaxed atmosphere. Well done Rach !
I'm happy to report that apart from a scuffed front passenger wheel trim the car is undamaged, which is a definite bonus, especially as it is now being sold...
We have decided to make some family car changes, partly prompted by escalating fuel prices.Currently unleaded is costing £1.30 for a litre, that's £5.85 per UK gallon or $7.92 for a US gallon ,which I think is a bit dearer than my state side friends will be paying, (Google suggests less than $3) Added to the current prices, the news suggests that by the end of March further increases will result in a further 15pence a gallon due to the instability in the Middle East AND 15pence a gallon due to taxation levies....giving a potential of £6.30 per UK gallon. (Dad if your reading this I remember when I was younger you complained at the price topping £1.00 a gallon !!!!)
So the plan is ...
Its up for £2995 if anyone is interested :)
Of course the last point, Rachel running the silver car herself may be a while down the line.. So far the cheapest quote we have had for her to insure it, after passing her driving test was £3,000 which sounds expensive until you consider the dearest quote we have had is £10,000 !!!!!!!!! which I think this translates to .. we don't want to insure young new driivers !
