Looks like we read into each others' posts then......

OK fellas, I think we should all just accept that people do stupid sh*t, including ourselves occassionally. And in that spirit, I submit the following relevant content. We can all be grateful we're not this guy:

Motorhome crashes down 100-foot cliff

That first one is a classic Newell, and is probably older than my Bluebird. New Newells today are about $1.5 million.

One of those would be great if I wasn't towing a Jeep.

Drove past a Dolphin(?) class A yesterday. It was a late 90's but had a sign advertising blown engine.

I'm presuming that it's probably a v8 gas. Are they the same v8's as say a pickup? For example I've seen class A's powered by 454's .... same? Or do they have different heads, cams etc?


TIA

Same engines. Often different heads and can be quite a pain to get the motor out-not always, but often.
