Re: breakdown truck

The series two Morris Oxford was the second car that I had. It had column change gears, an under dash hand brake and a front bench seat. Brilliant for getting up to the national sport that all teenagers think they invented. In fact my Morris Oxford witnessed my deflowering. It cost fifteen quid, (th...

There's somebody that I know might like that trailer, even the colour is good. That someone has a haulage business and he has a Ford Transcontinental that he keeps as a classic.
