A new year

Hi to all,

Hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year, and that you start to re appear on this Bedford site, or maybe no one has any Bedford vehicles any more.
It could be that I am the only one left owning one, hard to believe but it does seem like that.

I think it's more of a case that the new owners of beddies are a lot younger than us & use facebook groups rather than 'old fashioned' message boards.

Well, I've still got the 'rotting corpse' of my CF stuck on the drive. Well past it's sell by date and probably (certainly!) never to turn a wheel in anger again

I think Graham is right in what he said. People use Farcebook for everything now. Forums are a thing of the past. I really don't understand why. Oh well, I'm just a grumpy old fart. What do I know

Oh, Doug. Be afraid, be very afraid. I'm in Scotland next week. Luckily for you I'm the opposite side. Staying at Irvine and working at Hunterston power station.

I know I should get rid of it but I just can't bring myself to do it. Also I can't get it out of the drive as there's two other scrappers in the way. My old Peugot 407 estate and my Vectra CDX. I almost got rid of the Pug but the wife started storing stuff in it. Now I need to find somewhere for all her stuff before it can meet its maker.

Hi to all,

Is this the year of world war three, when I will have to live in my old Bedford because I cannot afford to live in my house or drive the Bedford due to the price of petrol.
While the steps taken against Putin are as nothing against what it is going to cost us, we live in a country of profiteering from the top down.
Last week I had to put my car off the road because of costs, the old Bedford may have to be next.
