Re: breakdown truck

Well that's twice today that you've posted lovely French stuff that the rest of the world ignored! :lol: That truck could be an incredibly good thing to take green laning. Consider that a bog stock Toyota camper van can embarrass the folk who throw money at the problem rather than learning how not t...

Re: Tractor please...

:drool: :drool: :drool: Oof! That tractor is rather lovely, IMHO. Some French stuff might be a little ordinary, yet when they get it right, they make a job of it, mostly thanks to Panhard, Citroen, Citroen, Citroen and a few Renaults that were pretty good too. Fast forwarding to now, Toyota Yaris co...

Re: Tractor please...

Well it is sort of a tractor. :mrgreen:
Possibly because much of my time is spent watching A-Team repeats on the Paramount channel, my first thought on seeing the combine was "what could BA Baracus do with that?" :twisted:

Re: breakdown truck

:shock: An actual breakdown truck? Must be an hallucination caused by cooking oil fumes from the van. :mrgreen: :thumbs:

Re: breakdown truck

Damn! I would have jumped on that had I not bought the infinitely more useful 4 wheel drive Hiace. I was once looking at those rare and unobtainable Fridolins but that Caravelle, although much less ancient, looks pretty decent and isn't too overpriced for something prepared to that standard. I would...

...Filthy shitty van man just doesn't have the same ring to it.
Perhaps not. However, because F is before W in the alphabet, the fsvm would get a lot more calls than the wvm from people who'd seen their name in the phone book.

Re: 2CV?Mehari?

There's a very impressive soundtrack to go with the bright red paint and the Ferrari badging.. Ah yes, it's on youtube at this link: https://youtu.be/Xb011YYiXXo :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: For those who like a more conventional appearance in their 2CV, here are some racers getting in th...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

That setup certainly has the potential to be its own worst enemy. How on earth would such a Heath Robinson (but without the logic..) contraption ever have been signed off by the production engineers at the time? It looks as if someone repurposed an existing product, more commonly found in a camper v...

Re: breakdown truck

....i washed my pickup for the first time in 18 months... You washed a commercial vehicle? :shock: That's just perverse! :lol: I went to an AsDa fuel outlet yesterday afternoon to fill the bB's tanks. No queue, petrol only £1.06 per litre, but no LPG left so I only have about 800 miles (a month's w...

Re: breakdown truck

Quarantine is such an ugly word,which is why our dear government calls it isolation. Hmm, yeah, that's loads better, although not worth as many points on a scrabble board. Ironically, in view of the concessions introduced for those of us whose MOT expires after the thirtieth of this month, the motor...
