Driver looking to drive your car from UK to costa del sol

Postby mikenr » Sun Jun 05, 2011 11:15 am

Hi there,

I am a 40 year old pilot who lives just north of Ronda, I am looking to drive a car/van for anyone from UK to Ronda/costa del sol area. I need to bring some batteries from uk to my house for my solar system transport costs are too high to do it another way.

So if you, or you know of anyone, who wants a vehicle driven down anytime around 17th June let me know.

Many thanks

Mike ;)

As one who has known pilots for 36 years I can advise that, in general, they are very tight with their hard earned :lol: and as such I expect the batteries are either cheap or free, probably the latter :lol:

Nothing to do with the current poster, but if someone who had posted only a few times on an internet notice board - and someone I had never met - offered to take MY car from the UK to Spain, I'd probably think twice about it. Same goes for Nigerian Princes who want to separate me from my hard-earned cash.
:wtf:

ps - I reckon Scotty's yer man for the job.

So were you guys never newbies on the forum ? When you started to post here did you come with instant credibility ?

No, of course we didn't, but neither did we ask if someone would lend us their car.

There are people who are naturally naive, people who are Knobheads and people who are, well just plain old dumb, hopefully I am none of the above which would explain my misgivings regarding the veracity of the original post :shifty:

So is kids taking guns into school and killing classmates, total ignorance of the world outside the US, publicly denouncing pornography whilst being the world's biggest producer of it, and many other things...

Perhaps it is but would you lend your car to a total stranger?
