Right place, wrong time

Have just been to the scrapyard in search of a replacement thermostat housing, and anything else of that might come in handy 'in future'. To be honest the 1.6e that's in there is pretty much stripped now, bar the engine itself.

As I walked into the yard a truck carrying a rather dented P reg Megane 1.6e saloon was just driving out. As you'll appreciate, it doesn't take much to write off a 10-11 year old Renault: basically the rear O/S door and around the wheel arch had been knocked in.

Transpires that the scrapyard people had decided they didn't have room for the Megane, so it was going off to the crusher without being unloaded first. I think the real reason was that it was a bloody hot Friday lunchtime and everyone was either in the pub next door, or about to go there.

If I'd been five minutes earlier it would have been mine, all mine...
