Yes the buggy has no bags. but it's not built for driving!

my notch has an airide set up cos that is. :D With the state of the roads and the speed bumps round these parts you need a bit of clearance.

One funny thing happend in the type 3, the council had built a new speed hump about a mile from my house. Nobody put signs up or anything!! I hit this new tarmac built thing at about 50 miles an hour. :shock: You know the shape that Whily Coyote makes when running through a brick wall? :lol: bit like that but notch shaped. The look on the workmans faces was genius. :shock: Although the underside of my car was shafted and still has tarmac on the front beam. Happy days. :D

haha thats funny. not trying to "black dog" you (ie my black dog is blacker that your black dog) but i once got my bay stuck in a car park. the road was lower than the car park so the path was on quite a steep angle. drove in alright (just scraped the sills a little) when i went to leave though the bumper hit the road and started lifting the nose of the van! only thing i could do was keep going forwards. thats not a pleasant sound

It's the look on bystanders faces when you end up ripping bits off that's funny.
