    Surely that was still restorable!
    Looks like an old Safari. But the clues only come at the end when the tow car drives away.

    Wasn't me....I've never used the stuff, never bought it, never owned it, and as far as I remember, never mentioned its name, nor written it with any spelling !

    I did once go on the Tassie Ferry with my mate Ron........ and I did say "Lets explore the decks Ron"

    It would be hard to spell 'Decks' wrong!
    How did all this garbage get started any way? Too much time on one's hands?

    Gerry, it's a running joke about the spelling of Dexron.

    As for the original topic, for an alleged "car" in such condition I think it is a completely reasonable way to move it.

    I thought you might have, Gerry, but I wanted to model a polite reply rather than a rude one.

    I don't mind some gentle banter amongst the seriousness.
