Re: Reader Rides (trial thread)

Re: Barn find Tri Star Synchro crew cab

Pardon my french, but what the "feck" are you people doing? Some of you are so rude, intolerant and unkind it makes me want to slap your buttcheecks with a worn out timing belt.

Grow up and try to behave.

No, I am not angry. I am disappointed.

Re: Arctic Explorer

Ive spent a little bit of time in a T3 around temperatures very similar to these in and around the Italian Dolomites and French alps. Anywhere between -10 and -25 was pretty common place day to day.
