Had a SIB, but needed more power Scotty. So when an SR6 (Hens Teeth in Oz) came on to the market I flew the 2500km to see the boat, talk him down pay for it and park it at a friends house in that city.

Flew Home, changed the oil in the landy and drove the 5000+km return trip to pick it up.

I thank you English People for the Landrover 110 (1985) minus the Engine (Oz fitted 3.9 Isuzus to them), and On The Buses and The Goodies

You Welsh People - Thanks for the Avon. Job well done.

Definitely a bloke after my own heart!!!

I had a Campari ski jacket years ago. It didn't have a engine bracket though.
