I'm not so sure whether the number 8 is lucky or not. I thought I would schedule the testing of my car for registration for 8 June, and wow, did that turn out to be hilarious. I'd given my car in for a special service two days before, made sure it was tip top, and then on 8 June very early took my car to the testing centre. On my way there the first thing that gave (first time in the history of my car) was the AC. And then when I got to the vehicle testing garage and was waiting my turn, just two cars before it was my turn, the engine overheated. Also for the first time in the history of the car. It was so bad, the heat gauge was flashing red. Wow! In the end I had to have my car towed to the garage. There is a bit of an irony to this however, perhaps 8 June could be seen lucky from that point of view. My car passed the vehicle test! Go figure ..... I explained to the mechanic who was testing my car what had happened, he still tested everything, and my car passed as the overheating did not show up as a major problem. But he did suggest I don't drive it before the problem has been seen to. It's still in the garage waiting for a very expensive replacement of a water pump and thermostat system, but I got it registered!
