breakdown truck

Got something to say, but it's not classic related? Here's the place to discuss. Also includes the once ever-so-popular word association thread... (although we've had to start from scratch with it - sorry!)

Lovely thing, but way too big for a van without a shower. Bound to attract buyers though, I'm thinking young ones with long, dense beards. ;)
A forward control Toyota Hiace like the one I owned makes for a far better solution to the non-existent problem of how to get up an icy mountain and make your tea, sleep and have a relaxing shower afterwards. IMHO of course, and had I only been asked once to pull a Range Rover off the beach after its owner ran out of common sense (at the last count, I'd done that seven times, four with the Hiace, once with my Mini Pajero :shock: and twice with the Hilux before I gave it away,) then maybe a Deafener would be the better all rounder, but I'd also prefer a vehicle with sufficient room to drive comfortably, a roof height no greater than the Noppo-built Hiace's 8½ feet and a very, very warm heater.
If I get my licence back onto an unrestricted basis before I'm too ancient to enjoy driving, then I'll have another Noppo, just as long as it has all of its factory furniture intact, and even without a snorkel, that would get pretty much anywhere I'd need to be.
As for Land Rovery, I'll have another Disco 300tdi auto some day, as long as they're still coming in from Japan at sensible cost after my enforced spell of passengering, not a thing I enjoy that much but the driver currently supplied by my health care policy is rather good at her job and also, have you noticed that almost all vehicles that are more than a couple of weeks old have a passenger seat that's much more comfy than the driver's side one?
:lol: *#fatauldthing* :P

Long dense beards, you obviously know about the ban-the-bomb marchers, and the men were just as hirsute too. For you John, lover of things wacky, a camper van with less tyre pressures to check:

Book-face, what a terrible man. He's now changed the name to META. What's that all about? "Most Effective Tactics Available," that's what.

Have you heard of The Jowett Jupiter? Someone that I know has just acquired one. Can't make my mind up:
