winter motoring
« on: November 30, 2010, 09:11:16 PM »
I had to admit defeat this morning and walk to work.  My trusty MkG was having none of it and refused to budge.  If only I made some space in my garage as I had planned to in the summer ???

I wondered what a Mk G ice cream van would have looked like and now I have some idea. Nothing like a tootie fruitie with a shot of Castrol two stroke.

The snow build up has changed the shape of the mkG into an early reliant regal.

 Oooh, now, we can't have the ICR upstaged by a mere Bond now can we....   ;D   ;)  And now, for your viewing pleasure: SNOW-BOUND CONVEYANCES!!!!!!  (Much prolonged fanfare...)







 Now there's a thought for next year's RUM calender....

Can I just point out that one Type 70 has the prototype rosebowl cooling fan as used on the Porsche 917. This is to form part of the tuned flat 12 cylinder Type 70. Actually it was soup that David K left on the Aga overnight only to be surprised when it grow an interesting candyfloss of fungal strands. Chump!
