My name is Titinne, I was born in 1988, and in July 2014 moved to Jersey, Channel Islands.
I don’t remember much about my life in the UK except that I was left in a 2nd hand garage in Eastbourne. My number plate was E354 REL.
My current owners, Murielle & Chris Nicolas spotted me on the garage website, and within a week they had hopped on a plane, jumped on a train and I greeted them at the station to give them a lift to the garage. I am so pretty it was love at first sight and within 20 minutes money and papers had exchanged hands, I had a new owner.
Officially I belong to Murielle but Chris keeps my engine running and I’ve noticed that he loooves to drive me too !
I Think Murielle would like to know more about my history so don’t hesitate to get in touch with her if you knew me in the UK.
And the story starts on 14th July 2014, in the Eastbourne garage car park… I decided to test how much they liked me by refusing to start after they had made the deal, and insisted on getting a new battery .
New battery fitted, it was time to go to and catch a boat to Jersey in Poole… Chris open the hood half way, but on the motorway the fastener popped open and Murielle had to get hold of the roof with both hands to stop it flapping in the wind at speed of 72 m/h (downhill with the wind in the back). She did look rather funny!
Next update will go through my integration in Jersey….
