I like to think that I am a man of my word. So when I said that I would buy a car from you, I wasn’t joking.

At 6pm I will be collecting my new wheels from an Autocar reader and hopefully I will make it back home without the aid of a flat bed.

What all this means is that if you want to, you can play the occasional online parlour game that is: what have I bought now?

I am afraid that I can’t give too many clues apart from the fact that I will have paid £500, it’s black and it’s on a T plate.

I will pop in from time to time to see how you are getting on. And possibly give you the odd clue if the trail goes cold - I will need the make and model ideally.

Oh yes, and there will be a prize of some sort, like a book wot I wrote.
