Sounds like an inside insurance scam to me. Who would go to all that hassle and expense for 10,000? Steal a car for god's sake.

Where are you going to run it? If wanted for a private estate, surely they could have afforded the asking price anyway.

Maybe it's a joke. I dunno.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Doesn't even look like Thomas.

And in the original books, Thomas refused to wear a cowcatcher, and that's why the Fat Controller had to buy Toby!  :D

Thieves also stole the toilet seats from the police station.

Police say they have absolutey nothing to go on.

Me thinks you know far too much about Thomas, George. A closet reader perhaps?
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

I have an excuse for knowing that particular story, it's a 3-year old son and a set of the original books...

That's right, you said you had the boxed set in the book review section a couple of years ago. Has Squidlet got them yet?
