Re: 2CV?Mehari?

I thought so, however the idea to post images of oddball, modified 2CVs was GHT's :thumbs: so thanks due to him. Thanks John, you might remember I said that the Deux Chevaux are for wimps. Well I stand corrected. Nicolo Lamberti and Milko Dalla Costa, who run the Italian 'Nimik' rally team, took th...

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. Quarantine? Isolation? What scrotum filled nonsense, (my polite way of saying b*ll*x) we are banged up under house arrest. Ther...

Re: breakdown truck

I'm now in such a good mood that I wasted several seconds of the enforced (quite rightly so..) "staycation", seconds that could have been used for a game of solo I spy, to seek out an eBay item that might appeal to our man in France. Rich, this one has your name written all over it: https://live.st...

A Minor without that signature overrun farty noise is just not the same.

Re: breakdown truck

The Mini was novel, I grant you. But in this day and age, when the old Mini engine smokes like a Russian battleship, you have to get clean and green. Or in this case, blue.

Re: breakdown truck

What cracked me up in the Renault write up was "des cookies." DeGaulle would turn in his grave. He hated borrowing from another language, especially English, worse, American English. It's why you're stuck with the five syllable: 'radiographie.' DeGaulle just wouldn't tolerate x-ray.

Re: breakdown truck

GHT, a man of your means must have at least one shower in his home, so repurpose lavatory paper that would - under normal circumstances - have served in the smallest room into the caravan, then take a combined number two / shower session when in residence at Château GHT.
