There has been a really good survival rate by the looks of it

I was just talking my brother about this very thread and when Dad looked at one

Dad was very keen to buy one but I remember as does my brother that Mum did share Dads enthusiasm

On paper they are brilliant and from all reports in the real world theu are very capable

For Dad it would of been a very practical machine that just made sense

A bit like a forward cobtrol Landrover only tough and reliable
I think the comparable thing is that they are both forward control

Your better to die trying than live on your knees begging

I had a forward control Land Rover many years ago. Really hard to get into, noisy, hot, exceedingly gutless, rough and absolutely impossible to do anything to the engine without disassembling the entire vehicle.

I think it was one of those seems like a good idea at the time brain snaps the Poms have on a regular basis. I understand the later V8 military ones were better but with all the same maintenance constraints.

This is early last year an OKA gathering on the Murray east of Renmark

DAMN!!!! How did I miss that!?!?

.... I do recall seeing a few around town ...

Be it firearms or V8 engines, the question is not "why should you have them?"
, but "who are you to demand that I justify them?"
