New Wheels

Having shopped around and decided on a Vauxhall Vivaro Bi-Turbo in black, we disappeared off on holiday to Majorca in October without quite managing to finalise the deal.  So while relaxing by the pool Logan sorted out the ply lining etc and finally placed the order with Carl at Thurlow Nunn in Norwich.  (We managed to order a new Yamaha R6 from a beach in Majorca in 2008 so were well practised in the art).  Our 2011 Nissan Navara was sold to a nice gent from Wales who was coming to collect the day after our return to home soil so with a 3-ish week wait on delivery we were grateful to Carl at Thurlow Nunn for arranging a loan vehicle to fill the gap.  Logan was duly furnished with a Vauxhall Corsa van.  I think that's enough said on that subject! 

Four and a bit weeks later the Vivaro arrived.  Bye bye Corsa van - it was...we'll leave it there.  To say the Vivaro has more than met all expectations is not doing it justice.  And since Red Dragon Media over in Norwich have done the signage, we have been inundated with positive comments on how fantastic it looks.  Great job all round.

Pics have finally been uploaded to Twitter and Facebook so take a look if you've not seen it already.  Or if you're local, take a drive by and you won't miss it standing outside the unit.  You may have even seen it out and about taking it's turn towing a certain bearded gentleman's sleigh around North Walsham over the festive period, helping the North Walsham Round Table to raise thousands of pounds for local causes.

Happy New Year
