Evening knappster.
What about a Field Marshal. Interesting to drive with a clutch operated by the right hand foot pedal and a single cylinder 2 stroke horizontal 4.5 litre diesel engine that is hand cranked. I've driven a couple and helped crank them.

Good morning Knappster,
I must be lucky because Mrs AB88 was the one who suggested I buy my series three (Bluebell) and that was about a two years ago now we have a 15 month old. Very Happy

Hi Paul, We went to Sicily. It was good, we had our own villa and pool out in the sticks so well away from tourism. Wood fired pizza oven in the garden and outside kitchen so did some great home cooking.

Bit too hot to be honest (40) and kids only came out after 4pm but then you could be in the pool till whenever as all lit up. Did quite a bit of sight seeing but again teenage kids don't appreciate culture!

I thought putting in an avatar of my machine would be simple. The process was easy, but then it said my picture must be less than 10kb (kilobytes?). How I'm supposed to know the number of kilobytes a picture has and how I reduce them is beyond me I'm afraid!

I'll remain visually anonymous.

Evening Mark.
Join the club. I don't know even how to start going about putting in an avatar (don't even know what it means) but I can keep my 42 year old Land Rover and 40 year old MGB GT going and that's more important. (What is a kilobyte?)

Hi Alan,

Didn't see many at all to be honest, although on a trip up Etna there was a 110 TDCi...

However all of the vehicles to take people up near the summit were these Mercedes 4x4's. They were quite powerful and made light work of the trip up

Good afternoon Adie,
Apologies everyone I have been enjoying a week of looking after my 15 month old boy.
I hope you enjoyed your holiday, everyone has been very kind and welcoming and it is nice to be able to chat to like minded people, especially as we all seem to struggle with uploading photos.
Very Happy

Hi Adie,

Were there many horses running around without heads? I heard that folks in Sicily can be quite forgetful of where they put them.

lol Paul, There was one restaurant that was a little like Goodfellas! Full of 'Wise Guys!' lol Surprised

I have to say though,they do take their security seriously! This the Dacia Duster Embarassed we had....see the fencing round the property?

That was 360 all the way round and electrically operated Surprised

Sorry AB88 for hijacking your post Embarassed

Shall I write a tutorial on posting pics and doing your Avatar as many seem to struggle? I could put it in the 'How to' section
