“Hello Chaz, Ogi told me about your new car.”

“Hello Chaz, Ogi told me about your new car. A vintage Avenger, too!!! Not a lot of them about!”
“Yes Stu, only a couple of quid from Craigy boy.”
“Quite the steal, eh Chaz?”
“Maybe so, but it’s been a bear to fix. Brutal to get parts. Craigy told me Big Donkey would see me right with the documents though, but he couldn’t. Something about the Avenger’s VIN numbers. Ogi didn’t do a good enough job catalloying around the welds.”
“Can I take a look Chaz? I do like that white rose on the sun strip, looks rather spiffy. Reminds us of home, eh?”
“Yes, sure does. Do you want to give it a drive and we can go see Big Donkey and Muiry at Hampden? See what they think?”
“Sure, that’s great! Who’d have thought I’d get to drive a vintage Avenger! Great stuff! I hear it is eco-friendly and runs on ethanol?”
“Yes, that’s right. The finest red wine and succulent lamb. Only the best for my vintage Avenger!”
“Got to say that it runs well for an 1872 Avenger, was a vintage year Chaz. You are a fortunate man!”
“Hey, there’s Big Donkey and Muiry at the bottom of the Hampden steps. Look Stu, they are arguing with somebody. Who is it?”
“Oh, that’s some muppet from Raith. I’ll roll down the window and invite them for a test drive. Neil, David, Turnbull – you want a run in Chaz’s Avenger?”
“Haw Donkey, whit you think. Fancy a birl? Hutton’s a feartie and he’s no comin’!”
“Sure, I’ll come. Four can comfortably ride in that Avenger David. Hutton can just walk for all I care!”
“Allright lads, get in – this is the four door model.”
“Look guys, sorry. But something isn’t right here. The Avenger that Craig got from Minty was a two door. This is not the same car.”
“Och Turnbull ya muppet, yer heid’s nippin’. Same motor, ya jealous git. Green wi’ envy, eh Chaz!!!”
“No, sorry David you are wrong. Look Stewart and Neil, contrary to what David is saying this is most definitely not the same car. OK, the VIN number at the front match’s Minty’s and Craig’s Avenger, but the front was cut-off and then welded to the back of another right-off. This is not the same car! You been at it Charles? Cutting-up and welding together write-offs and passing them off?”
“Look Turnbull, only you would bring that up. It’s perfectly road worthy! And lots of people like Avengers, I’m doing this for the greater good.”
“Charles, this vehicle is not roadworthy. Craig’s car was a right-off. Hector put him off the road. It is not safe and you know it. Hector is mad enough as it is. Craig tried to take it to Europe and wrecked in Malmo. It’s a mystery why Hector never impounded it and broke it for spares, and could still. Parts of a vintage Avenger can command a good price!”
“Ah shut it ya big feartie. C’mon lads, let’s get gaun. Am in the back wi’ Donkey. Chaz you drive and Stu navigates. Yer just a muppet Hutton. Lets go frighten yer pals.”
“Look guys, I appeal to your better judgment. Driving old Avengers welded together from a scrapyard is not safe. When the welds fail, don’t come crying to me!”
