    Amazing it only weighs about the same as a ute= 2 & a bit ton! The door was a bit cramped for the lady so the passenger must have cramped his neck. James Bond or ODD JOB?

    Thanks Frank. 50 odd years since doing imperial full time . 2240 lbs in our ton & what i was thinking was 5280 ft (imagine 5280 lb in a ton) in our old mile.!

    LOL big muck up! next time i'll have to put brain into gear & every bugger asks ME what is this in metric & what is that length, area, volume, weight or size? Ha ha ha.LOL again. They did find a brain when doing a scan a while back: hope it is still there! Maybe gone with that guy's with the john deere wacking himself around the head. Should I try that? LOL

    Seems like a waste of a Lear to me...and sure as hell don't need 17,000 watts of sound even in 42 ft. If they did that much work and Duckets why not restore the Lear...they are getting scarce now days. Sssheeeze Mugillicuty!

    Yeah, I can no longer do 2 things at once. I had been up all night ticked off about a mistake in my pension so put it to good use posting a few of my home made stuff & learning how better to insert pics. After a couple of hours stressed sleep the puppy woke me to go outside. Couldn't sleep again so did house work (wife up at 5am & gone by6) then rang pension mob and was on over 2 hrs so started to read the forums & comment. NO EXCUSE but I need better focus like I had a few of years back. At least it gave a few good laughs esp to me . I always like to check out Franks posts and that is a doozzy.
    Cheers

    I don’t think I’d like to be behind it on my bike in a queue at the traffic lights! Or even a sound-proofed truck. Impressive a build as this is, are you sure that it is street legal?
