Default News flash

seen heading towards the Riverina one large blitz on the back of a truck with a sulky looking red dog on the back and an embaressed blitz driver riding in the front of the truck. Who could this have been?

Default You cant go anywhere......

Maaaaaaaaax!!!

Fair Dinkum!!!! I thought you were sworn to secrecy!!!

For the record - everyones OK..... Clevo's fine, truck is OK.

Led the Anzac parade at Batemans Bay. Hundreds of people by the sides of the main street clapping & applauding. Kids waving the Flag, old fellahs pointing and saying "I drove one of those bloody things".

My grandfather (WW2 veteran) sitting in the passenger seat & waving to all the people. I did get a little teary..... I was so happy and overcome with gratitude. I know it sounds corny but it's the truth.

Reason why truck was on the back of the tilt tray was the fuel system I have hooked up has not worked as well as I thought it might. There are a number of factors. Firstly, fuel tanks are not clean (its really bad on the other side of the baffles you cant get too) the pickups in the tank still have crap in them too. The copper line running from the tank switch to the pump is too narrow not allowing enough flow.

This combined with 875 meter ascent over 5 kms PLUS 12x20's makes me very the very cruel owner of a poor old F60L.
