    Outstanding. That sort of thing cannot be made up for certain. Great story.

    Sounds like the rig was lucky to have found you at the time as you gave it some life back.

    The plex-dome seems ready made for roasting a passenger's head under the South Australian sun. Was it a cloudyday-only passenger carriage? :ear

    No day was a good day to be in the sidecar. Lets just say that dwarfs would feel uncomfortable in there. You could take a passenger but you felt like a 5 foot person in a 3 foot coffin. Very squeezy.

    Depends on whether YOU dress the part, as well! Are you into Bondage, bare Skin, Studded Leather, Inappropriately-worn Sports Guards, and shouting out in a hoarse voice while waving your fist?

    As motor vehicle batteries start to become a rare item, many vehicles would be requiring the 'brute-strength' approach to turn a motor into life. What would using a hand crank starter on a V-8 do for one's biceps?

    It's criminal that it reached that condition before you got it 3legs. Great job on the resto. :thumbup

    a few months ago i saw on ebay one of the yellow and blue ford cop car mfp sedans go for under a grand, it was pretty crap looking, and was a 6 cyl automatic. they said it started but wouldnt go into reverse on the add.

    i dont know if it was genuine, but looked the part, probably some stunt crash car they put through the caravan..

    If there are enough sporting goods stores to raid that everyone can wear football pads, I expect there will be plenty of parts stores to raid too. :p
