We took advantage of a government scheme to reduce carbon emissions by scrapping old cars for financial reward - and scrapped Alex's trusty Peugot to get money off a brand new Kia. I've never had a new car in my life, always bought old battered jobs and driven them to their doom, so its a bit of a change for me. Alex gets the purple Nissan which used to be Mum's. Also, I have to remember to change gear, as the Nissan was automatic! First journey was to Liverpool airport to pick up a colleague, and that was good. Here are some pics, hopefully!
