Thank you for posting that piece.

I knew it before watching, but, Mickey Thompson was awesome.

Yeah, I knew it too, but didn't have a clue how far his influence reached.

I happened on a short video clip by someone passing that truck load of movie cars and grabbed a screen shot of the rear.
Ain't from around these here parts, but it's a left hand drive country.

saw a car carrier mostly upside down in the median last weekend with a copy of Herbie the Love Bug nearby. Sad.

For the accuracy challenged...

That's pretty funneh.

I imagine the restoration took a couple years and a chunck of time after that before he took the money.
The dumbshit could have paid the tax and doubled or tripled the remainder.

I was watching an episode of Antiques Road Trip from SW Scotland a little earlier when one of the presenters, Charles Hanson, took a break from buying overpriced tat and selling overpriced antiques to visit the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Heritage Trust.

He was shown an Austin Gipsy fire engine which had spent part of its working life on the Isle of Arran.


At an unknown date (possibly 1965) it was stationed at Lochranza on the Isle of Arran in the garage of the Lochranza Hotel.

The Austin Gipsy was essentially a poor man's Land Rover having steel instead of aluminium bodywork and never sold in any great number.

After his visit Hanson was allowed to drive the vehicle much to the amusement and horror of his guide.

If I say that Charles Hanson is to driving what Liberace was to cage fighting, I think you'll get the picture.

That Austin Gipsy looks perfect for narrow mountain roads and off road.

Over here Jeeps are used a lot by companies that have to go into buildings like factories and warehouses where aisles are narrow.

Gravdigr 07-17-2018 04:04 PM

I think the Gipsy looks an awful lot like the Jeep.
