oh that was my home for a 2 year "honeymoon" around Europe. it was a 1986 IFA East German army truck that I bought with 800kms on the clock, after The Wall came down. the company I got it from, still as a mobile telephone exchange, paid less that $2000 for it !

only took a few minutes to get the process working

btw, it allows me to insert a photo where i want it, instead of just adding an attachment or several attachments

now that i have the system down, it works much nicer than just adding attachments

hope to see your pics, SOON

Thankyou bro' I'm on it ! (soonish)

Gotta admit I love the look of the old Honda and would enjoy the Roamer even more.

So ... Soho ... is this yours? I was doing my usual google obsessing and came across this cool cargo sidecar this morning that looks like a Watsonian frame. Seems someone thinks it belongs to you.
