NMP's I think Norm Robinson was 84 when he stopped driving. I read a article that he was the last truck to go through Goulburn when the RTA or DMR opened up the Hume Hwy to bypass Goulburn.

XSpanner,
I reckon old Normy Robinson was a good mate of Russell Hovey's, here in Geelong. i have a feeling that Russell still has that Atkinson in his hands.
I never knew him, but i often heard that he was a true gentleman..
And another- same fella?

My mum turned 101 early in September. When she received the letter from the authorities to tell her she had to give up
driving she screwed up the letter , and kept driving. Needless to say i had the car "stolen" one night, never to be found?
She never saw the car again and never drove again. She was 98 yrs old at the time.
Stubborn old girl , and that's why she is still going strong at 101 years.

I have a feeling I have put this up before but here goes (again?)

True story.
In the 1980's, a man in his late 80's or early 90's lived just outside Echuca, Vic. He regularly drove his Wife into town in their 1928 Morris Commercial truck. The problem was that he drove everywhere at 20 miles per hour and did not look left or right at intersections. He was a danger on the road.
The local Police had known him for years and did not want to upset him by taking his drivers licence away so they hit on the idea of putting the truck off the road as it was virtually falling apart, anyway.
The idea back-fired because the old bloke bought a 1952 Morris Commercial LC3 truck that was "only" thirty-something years old. His Wife told friends "The "new" truck is lovely, it has wind-up windows and everything." Pretty soon the Police had to give in and take his licence away.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Morris, when I first met John we were at a RAEME course in Chapel street Prahan. John had a Dodge weapon carrier fitted with a Caddilac V8 engine, at the lunch break he headed out the gate into Chapel street with all wheels spinning & a great exhaust note. Seems he has'nt changed in the ensuing years, that would have been close to 60 years ago. Cheers Tim
