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!)

Hell aye, but not with a manual gearbox. A nice L series Toyota Diesel engine, with AW45 transmission and the accompanying transfer case, would go well in that though. I'm loving the look of the van though. Is the "Sanitary" a Covid resistant model, do you suppose, or does it come with a particularly impressive on board bathroom suite?🤔

No ta, did you have something in mind? If you've found a spotless, JDM Land Cruiser or Hilux Surf then yes, that kind of "tractor" would definitely be of interest.

Sanitary: adjective, relating to the conditions that affect hygiene and health, especially the supply of sewage facilities. In other words it's a posh way of saying that it looks like shite. I concur.

John, knowing your aesthetic this might appeal, it's been sitting there, collecting rare species of moss and lichen, for more years than I can remember. It needs the kiss that turns frogs into princes.

Must remember to give my therapist a call. To think that I might consider a B/L van worthy of approval, please, pass the smelling salts.

FB link by any chance? They're blocked across all of my devices now. It's easier than going through removing their sneaky cookies :drool: one by one!
I reckon that the link probably led to something rare, desirable and orange... or a car. I'm having strong urges to buy some form of extra vehicle to replace the van now that it's about to head off to a lucky soul who wants to fit a new interior and have the body wrapped in a graded front to rear colour sweep with paw prints in gold. I'd have settled for pitching my tent inside the van, much easier than removing a complete load of furniture temporarily when next I need to pick up a new (to me, I'm never buying split new again) vehicle. I shall miss the tall van though.
I've even been looking at Sprinters with the automatic option, which is a really good one these days, and the far less common 4wd because I'll need something that can get me up a mountain in December. I do have a Surf on my eBay spotcher just now too. It's the blue 1997 P plate one that's on just up the road in the Portobello neck of the woods.

JPB: yes farcebook but not orange.

Pickup ..

Although on my tablet it's failing to display correctly so I can't see what vehicle it is .. FB marketplace isn't great on Android devices
