Fined? Never mind the fine, they should be shot at dawn for that! Is the shell actually attached to the chassis? My goodness what a total pile.Kazuki's mad creator wrote:TRY FINED ANOTHER ONE
Nice looking Maxi though, a flat parcel shelf is always a sign that they haven't been too badly overloaded and that one has only been on the road since 2016 since being put away before the MOT service went online in 2005. It's sitting a little low, but better that than the usual eBay Maxi (and Allegro, Metro, MGF, Princess) trick where the fluid pressure has been overdone to compensate for a lack of Nitrogen that really needs some Schrader valves to be tapped into the bell ends of the suspension displacers in order to prevent catastrophic diaphragm rupture, a phenomenon that used to affect Maxis under warranty so goodness knows how one that's been in storage that long will respond to the "Dalek". Still a fine looking old thing though. Nice find.
And hang about, is it? Can it possibly be? Oh my days, it is! It's an actual breakdown truck! That's a fantastically eccentric old Citroen, when are you going to buy it?
GHT: I thought that I'd seen most of the things that human beings can do to their minis, possibly I have, but now sure & I've seen every possible variation on the theme of mini. Apart from MINI, which is a modern device that doesn't fit long people.
Sir Alec, may he continue to rest in peace, had it pretty much right in 1959.
