Stay out of this Mogwarts it isn't appropriate for someone who can paint their car with a can of Humbrol to enter this discussion......

. . . with enough left over to doll up the trailer, I might add.

Dr. that was a good one. Stainless sure left some paint on the salt. Glad he is OK.

Absolutely Johnboy, that joke wouldn't have had the same ring to it otherwise.

If you think you are happy, it's nothing compared to Linda.... she'd rather put up with my Subaru than have to dispose of it  :evil:  :roll:

I'll be right Bob, thanks, i'm a daredevil for sure but this shirt is about as far out as I'll go, yellow with purple flames? even the Rev would struggle to pull that off( shot by Simon Davidson)

Gogs,
Hows about a picture of the newly acquired tank hauler.

Is the F150 still the puller of choice?

F100 Don, does the job and is still semi practical around town.

No-one wants to see pictures of a dumb old trailer, BUT, i have some news that will warm hearts. She's been married a few times , but we love her, well when I say married I mean it looks like she's had a few relationships, she's been blue, she's been red, she's now black......but the great news is SHE'S BEEN YELLOW!!!!!!!!!

OK settle down.


40 degrees here today........ :x

Nice idea Greg, we were thinking of putting a shroud over the front of the trailer , probably a frame with a tarp, rather than a full one with sheet metal.... I'll consider your suggestion.

I'm figurin that Ronnie. Last year we took an open trailer with a front on it, wasn't too bad....just working out the lazy/effectiveness balance.

Last year was the cleanest the car has come back, main objective is to stop the destructive yonnification (google that seps).

I did search for "yonnification" and I came up with - not much except for one use of the word in a language I don't speak -- looked like Spanish or something.  Are you gonna tell me or must I simply add the word to the long list of Aussie words that aren't meant to be known by those of us on the top half of the world?

You chuck, piff or hoik a yonnie...

 :roll:

Thus yonnification, stone damage.

I grew up in the country, my years between about 6 and 15 were largely taken up by throwing things, yonnies mostly, yes, the Stone Age.
