How many other prior members can you think of who would have an avatar of a dude who committed suicide around 40, and start a nonsensical thread going nowhere? haha

It had potential to be entertaining. I liked the friend request.

What is this wierd american thing of taking a vehicle thats been developed to perfection and the ruining it by fitting a V8 gas, if you do this you may want to swap out the axles too. Personally as money seems to be no object I'd get a 3.0TDV6 with the Auto conversion. That give you the best HP/Torque, and it be economical to boot.

Let's not get carried away. They are far from engineered to perfection. Land rovers have some ingenious solutions to problems that should have never existed in the first place if it was engineered correctly

I've been called a lot of things but never weird. Whats not to love? An American powerhouse with English refinement. A true sleeper in the classical sense.

Well, now his avatar looks like Jeff Briggs, so I think the cat is out of the bag.

Jason are you going to be able to stumble across the street to T Tav on Friday?

I was confused for a second, then realized as well you were prob talking about England.

We're starting a backtrace to all recent orders for the best-selling "Hooked on Phonics" and "Sweet Pickles" box sets within the past 30-60 days. Based on the "Wild Irish Rougue" (instead of rogue) spelling I'm guessing it should be easy to get to the bottom of this one. He may also have a penchant for lame romance novels.

If this falls through, I guess we'll just have to keep biulding a case from there. Neil!

Its a bit far to be honest ... ;-)

i have to go to Beacon but I'll try and pop in for one ... I have my new doors to strip for painting, annual inspection, drop arm to change and scratch my head on how to change the AC compressor bearing!

I keep thinking every time I read it would be more entertaining if it read:
"Allow myself to introduce...myself".
