I saw it purely by chance, as I perused old bookmarks.

An AW11, in two-tone white and silver. Manual. Supercharged. Decent condition.

The price was golden.

But I’m living on couches and in spare rooms until I move into a new place next month.

I need to buy a fridge and a washing machine and so many little things.

I waited, and waited.

Days passed.

I was trying to be responsible but it actually didn’t seem like that much of a financial risk.

I finally decided to go and look at the car.

It’s gone.

It’s so rare to find exactly what you’re looking for.

And yet all too common to let it slip through your fingers.
