Han Solo disappointed by Millennium Falcon scrappage deal
Han Solo, who had been hoping to trade up to a reasonably-priced space freighter with not too many light years on the clock, has told of his disappointment at being offered only £2,000 off the price of a new car in exchange for his star ship, The Millennium Falcon.
‘Admittedly the Falcon was close to 50 years old when we blew up the Death Star,’ said Solo today, ‘and more than that if you factor in that it comes from long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, but I was shocked to learn we’d get so little. Each time we mentioned the scrappage scheme the salesmen lost interest and directed us towards a Suzuki Swift or Nissan Micra. I’m just not sure we’ll make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs in a two-wheel drive run-around like that.’Click to send this story to a friend
