Re: Vintage Fords on VSCC Welsh Trial 2017

The only tricky bit with an A in mud is the stiff steering. You can see drivers struggling with it in the video. Makes being nimble a bit tricky.

Re: Problem with Mac's

If you paid eBay, your contract is with eBay I would say.

If you don't have luck with eBay try PayPal for a refund.

All else fails get a refund from the credit card (if linked to PayPal).

Re: Museum GAZ AA Fire Truck

The way it was told to me is that if the Germans wanted two vehicles they had to take three, so as to have one for spare parts.

They might have just run out of trucks.

Re: Hub supplier

I think there is a free trade agreement between SA and the EU?

Re: 4x4 decendent of Model A ?

That Chrysler engine was supposed to be pretty good? My father was always going on about it in his 1936 Plymouth tourer.

Last Jeep we hired it looked like it had the OHV version of it.

3.78+13.5% is 3.27
3.78 + 6 % ...
