|Two blokes (on a motorbike) came to see my for-sale 50th yesterday...at 1.20 in the morning (on Xmas night/Boxing day morning!). Fortunately, we have a secret security device which they activated, as well as three CCTV cameras, so we saw them. The whole thing (including them going past our home initially on their bike) was recorded by the CCTV cameras and given to the police just 10 minutes after the unwanted enquirers left our driveway.
My 50th is always disabled, anyway, so they wouldn't have been able to take it even if I'd have left the keys in it - and it was (as usual) boxed in by other vehicles.
This month, the insurer underwriter, Footman James, reported that Defender values have gone up by 43% in the past year. They (and all the bits that make one up) are much valued and much sought after. Take care, people!
Defender-less - but big plans!
