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!)

That Beamer deco kit is a bit old hat Rich, this is what BMW are up to of late.

Mine was a 70s model, i did get another late restricted model just before I left Blighty but it was quite asthmatic in comparison... my old one could easily carry 8 kids climb any hill/track and was a great trails bike

Just curious Rich, have you seen the new Ford truck yet? Ford have decided to get back into the commercial market, but for now, only in left hand drive.

I saw some ford trucks when I attended the 24h le mans truck race a couple of years ago... i drove the new Mercedes truck a couple of months ago... i was so tempted to get a job on the trucks again..

You can earn a really good income if you have the right licence. Waitrose are offering their drivers £54K.
