They all got back into the red Vauxhall Corsa and he drove them to Halshaws car show room.

“Thank you Michael said Bobby as he drove away.’

“Well you have your house let’s see if I can get you a good deal on a car. Just let me do the talking here.’


Walking around the show room it didn’t take the assistant long to come out.’

Hello there I’m William; can I help you with anything.’

Yes, said Bobby; we are looking for a small reliable car, five door, with plenty room in the boot.

“I have just the car; It is the mini metro over here.’

“We like the Renault 5.’

“Okay I can show you that.’

William led them to the Renault the silver grey model looked nice.

This model has a four cylinder engine, five speed gearbox. The torque is 122 pounds

Power 118 bhp 575 rpm. It has a top speed of 123 miles per hour.

Maggie didn’t have a clue what he was talking about.’

“Can we take it for a test drive?’

Certainly sir.

“They went outside where there was one the same colour; Bobby got in with the assistant on the other side Maggie got into the back. Bobby started her up then drove out of the car park. He took the car onto the coast road and checked her for road holding, speed, and braking power. The he went through the gears to see what she was like.’

“Not bad said Bobby, how much is she to buy?’

This model is five thousand two hundred pounds new; we do have second hand models for just over two grand.’

“Come on William we are talking cash money here not terms.’

“Williams face turned red as he took out his calculator and tapped in the figures plus his commission.’

“The cheapest we could do this mode for is four thousand eight hundred.’

“Make it four seven and we have a deal.’

I would have to speak with my boss about that.’

Fine I mean I’m sure there are other car dealers who would snap my hands off for cash at this time.’

William took out his mobile and rang his boss and discussed the proposal and then he stuck up his thumb a few seconds later.’

Good; I knew that your boss would see sense; and of course that price will include free floor mats and oil and a spare tyre.’

“Yes sir.’

“We have a deal then; I want to take it right away is that okay.’

“Once we have completed the paperwork sir the car is yours.’

“No more bloody buses thank God.’

“It took another twenty minutes before they got all the paperwork and Bobby drove the car home.’

Bobby the way you do business is ruthless.’

“I’ve saved you £5.500 today though Maggie better in our pocket than in theirs.’

Now when we get in I will save you even more money when I negotiate a price for your driving lessons which you can start tomorrow.’

Tomorrow; no time like the present.’
