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!)

My "never buy a similar car just because same colour" circuits are broken, but pictured below is my own , 17 Gordini engined with Trafic gearbox, 12 Break:

That most useful car is one of only a dozen or so that I would happily own again, but with MCC gear selector and clutch servo modification from a scrapped Smart Fortwo, a mod that's gaining ground among owners of older motors that didn't have suitable automatic options back then. The 12 Automatic was of course a thing, but the Trafic wasn't available then with that option and the 12's relatively weak transmission wouldn't have lasted more than around a week per change of clutch packs, given my hair trigger driving foot. :oops:

My father in law used to own a Renault 12, not sure which model but it was a twin choke carb, and rather quick... he loved it, although he managed to put it in a feild upside down which kind of killed it :cry:

Argh! The dreaded Dacia. did you know that it's pronounced, Da-Cha? I saw a zillion of them in Romania at the fall of the Iron Curtain. I'm sure that I have told you the tale about taking out a convoy of aid through a Christian, Inter-denominational Aid Charity. The Romanian diesel was about as good as their Dacias, and given that we broke down more than once and only got going when we learned how to clean out a fuel filter, says a lot for Romanian Dacias.

On a travellers tow truck, I once saw the registration P1 KEY. Chances are I would get accused of racism if I had photographed and shared it.

In that vein, and as it's not a UK number plate, you might like this:
