It's a bit breezy here too.
Broken down cars morson? It's only a bit of wind.

Could it be..... a real replacement????

Also a spy shot on the Ineos Grenadier is out, but from a long way off, the roof line looks a bit Disco1

Baby SUV? Isn’t that like a freelander?

A proper utility vehicle would be better.

Mrs K is watching the love island programme. There’s no storyline to it.

A smaller utility vehicle is called a 'shopping trolley'.

Personally I prefer the New Zealand word for shopping trolley.......Trundler, and you get trundler parks to put them when you’re done ✅


Land Rover Trundler???🤪

Why not? They did a pushchair, didn't they? Go off road in your decrepitude! Ideal for those Lake District paths until they get around to paving/tarmacing them all for your wheelchair. Crying or Very sad

My regular dog walk passes a couple of car repair businesses. Outside one called M.S Motor Worx at Penton Corner was a car suspended on a forklift with someone working underneath it. On the return journey the car was still on the forklift but facing the opposite direction.
I wonder what damage is likely to be caused by lifting a car with a forklift and since there is no safety device to stop the forks dropping if there's a hydraulic failure it's downright dangerous.
