Brown Belt

Brown Belt (5/13)



  1. Thirsty Rolls Royce engine...
  2. The trunnions haven't been screwed up the vertical link too tight?
  3. Speedy cables mended one of mine a few years ago. Still working OK.
  4. Bury St Edmunds, Angel Hill. Used to get the bus in from out in the wilds, before I passed my test. (in Bury 1966.) Memories, memories.

    A couple of days ago, I was looking for a specific tape from my huge collection which hadn't seen the light of day for some years....... BIC biro was used several times. (How did they know that they would be the exact shape for winding the tape?...) Eventually found the tape, Slade at Reading in 1980. And despite expectations, they were not a joke!

    And their clever clogs brother, Full.
  7. November firework meeting, Santa Pod, 1983. My mates bought me a flagon of cider 'to go'. It went on Saturday and I have no recall of the Sunday. Unbeknownst to me, Alan 'Bootsie' Herridge was killed in his jet car whilst I lay in my drunken stupor. He was a bit of a 'hero' to me. I haven't touched cider since then... Not a drop.
  8. Cars getting bigger and fatter..... Check new housing developments, if there's a garage, odds are it will still have a 7' wide garage door... And be full of junk or converted into another room, because as sure as hell you won't get a modern car in, and if you did, you wouldn't be able to get out... I repair garage doors..... If I can even get in past all the junk.
  9. Makita for me. battery one in the van for work, mains one in the garage.
  10. That puts me in mind of this beast at our local Transport festival 5 years ago.
  11. When I chopped off the rear end to make my 'shorty', I retained that section with the intention of possibly incorporating it in a trailer... It's still up in the loft.
