yes tyres are expensive, but being a hyundai - specced tyres are hankook and not the worst pricewise and it has a full size spare. - towbar is free as the garage was screwing me around and I nearly walked out.

Well I'll be fine then....

new car picked up today - ex demo 5k on the clock - chuffed as a bunny with a warren full of bunnygirls.


You haven't thought it through.

How are you going to find a white car in a snowdrift?


More to the point, where are you getting your info Highlandsflyer ?

I see no pundit prepared to second guess the winter forecast at this distance. Stop your scaremongering.

Anyway the cars that huge he'd be hard pressed to miss it !


Neither would a snowplough.Image

Oh you can easily lose your car in a drift, here is my old Kombi in a drift, there is actually a car parked behind it somewhere!

My info on the weather is from nature, there are signs everywhere it will be a harsh winter. And the law of averages, of course it was harsh last year for some but not so bad up here.

I too have heard its meant to be a harsh one this winter.
I bet two tyres for that Hyundai is cheaper than a set of Big Fat Larrys for the Pugsley :)

That pic of the old kombi... Jesus! That's some snow! At first glance I thought somebody was part way through drawing/painting a picture of one.


Here's what I currently own, motor wise:

I've owned it approx. 2 months, already replaced the front suspension for an entire new unit (to help me go lower) and dropped the rear another inch from what it was.

It looked like this when I got it

And shortly after a bit of a comparative shot:

More tuck and low.

Love the rusty look, are you going to try and keep it like that to some degree?

Very sweet!

Had splits long ago, wish I had held on to them! Going back to the 80s you could still pick them up with some work needed for a few grand!

Nice motor TK, guy at work has had one a couple of years and really likes it.
Never mind Velo and his lowering idea, I'd love to see it after the Jimihendrix experience!
