Re: breakdown truck

There's a reason why these earlier Morris cars lived on until very recently in the shape - largely unchanged - of the Hindustan Ambassador, a BMC product bearing an Ambassador badge that owners tend to be proud of! Later Ambassadors of the Morris Oxford pre-Farina shape, although originally equipped...

Re: breakdown truck

One for John, he likes those early BLMC cars. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1262775 I have that in my C&C favourite list! An A55 Mk2/A60/Oxford V/Oxford VI shaped thing is usually somewhere in my history and the Countryman/Traveller versions are especially attractive to me. Later, 1622cc ver...

..unimog.... :drool: :idea: :shock: OK, 'fess up, you've hacked my browser history somehow! :lol: Seriously, I've been drooling over these things since I saw one in a local fuel station recently, with some sort of agricultural device mounted to its chassis. Research ** suggests that they're not sui...

Re: Tractor please...

:shock: Yeah, two things wrong there, possibly more that I'd missed but my poor eyes can only stand a few seconds of exposure to such things these days: 1, It's a modified Peugeot 106 and 2, it's a modified Peugeot 106. :sick: ;) OK, so I know that the last of the conventionally shaped hatchback car...

Re: Old Laptops

Oh damn! Rick, if only I stayed closer to the south eastern area of the UK, I'd be jumping on this like a cat on an injured bird. Last time I found that I needed to dispose of a bunch of older IT gear (P3 desktops, Acer laptops used by a village "silver surfers" group back in 1999 and combined from ...

Re: breakdown truck

Ooh! That Leyland could be lovely with relatively little work, I'm liking the cab, whose standard of trim and colour scheme are way ahead of anything else in the commercial vehicle market at the time and better yet; it's all beige and velour-ish in there. :drool: Good old Leyland, not even their tru...

Re: breakdown truck

Hmm, methinks someone may have caught a dose of "pedantitis." :lol: I was eventually almost cured of this very annoying condition when an Uncle, Jack, had been having problems involving his beloved hobby of pony trekking and was becoming so sore after a long ride that someone had to help Jack, off h...

Re: breakdown truck

Pffft! Real Toyota vans don't have bonnets to get in between the driver's eyes and the rear of the car in front. ;) https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50297842237_95dc38e538_h.jpg The smaller, car-shaped van may be a solution to the time my sensibly spacious one is going to be spending now he's all...

Re: breakdown truck

Since the laws changed you now have to be 21 or over to drive a three-wheeler... John Hmm, I get the idea, but consider that it's permissible to marry at sixteen, to drive a potentially far more deadly light motor vehicle at seventeen and to drink, gamble or vote at eighteen. Any of these activitie...
