Third Somerset's A Charm
Or
Someone Really hates me!!?

Monday I attempted bringing home my 3rd Somerset, I might have known it wouldn't turn out very well. I had a scrap ambulance that I'd scored for some parts that I was in need of, just shy of the scrapyard we were pulled over by a peace officer driving a "Commercial Vehicle Inspection" truck.

After a complete roadside inspection turned up a set of non-working brakes a $115.00 fine was levied. From there we went and unloaded the van (no other surprises there). After receiving pay for it we headed over to the yard where the Somerset sits, I was told there would be someone there to help pull the old girl onto the trailer and the gate would be open.

HA HA BIG SURPRISE!!! YUP, locked and no one anywhere near with a key! By this time it is getting close to 4PM and the sun will be setting in less than an hour. The guy with the key finally showed up near 4:30 and let us in, guess what? The car is stuck solid in about 6" of ICE!!!

There's no loader or any piece of equipment available to pull it free until after 6PM when the previous owner gets off work and we're running with a trailer with no brakes or good marker lights (The wiring underneath decided to short soon after the inspection was done. ) So off we go empty handed. The only thing good that came about Monday was my getting some much needed work as the trailer had to be re-inspected by me (I'm a licensed mechanic) and made a nice $80.00 for repairing a couple of wires and putting a battery in it. The former owner of the car told me he'd try to get it delivered to me on Saturday. I HOPE SO!!! It would be sweet to see which one of them I'll be restoring first!

Most of us have our cars for driving. We have routes from country back roads to windy river and escarpment roads.
