IIRC that car was built for a land speed record?
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

Here is a little (Long....) dash cam vid . We went from Watsons Creek NSW , where we finally located my mums childhood home to Manilla via Bungendore Spur Road. About 15 years ago we took our caravan in the opposite direction, the road has improved a lot since then. Sorry about the vid,
the shadows upset the dash cam as well as putting it on youtube made it more blurry.
Earlier in the year the road was blocked for a few days when a bloke took a loaded semi through, (because of flooding and a couple of accidents
somewhere near Bendemeer . A crane was used to lift the thing around some of the bends. ( so the locals said )...................




I think it looks better on a small screen

I hope this all works out.............................Billy...........................
