The trusty Steed.

Details here about the car.

Well, we have finally got our Rocinante to take us on our foolish quest!

 (In fact it's not like this at all, it's actually a real car.)


I've managed to get my hands on a top quality, highly desirable piece of automotive history. The car i have chosen to carry me 1/3 of the way around the world is the famous, and much derided Nissan Micra. It's a vintage 1991, 988cc, Silver Dream Machine with character coming out of it's tailpipe - we initially thought it was oily fumes and engine parts, but on closer inspection, it did indeed appear to be 'character'.

Despite being about as old as my teeth, it runs like a dream, and even has a radio!


And now for the pictures........



This is the poor unsuspecting member of the public that I cunningly tricked into selling me this fine example of Japaneese engineering!


The conversation went something like:

Me: Hey, I really like this car, it's cool!

Him: Really? 

Me: Hell, Yeah! How much do you want for it?

Him: You wanna pay me? Erm, OK.
