    Default Another one bites the dust

    DS took pics of the car a few years ago.

    Parts of it will live,
    the heart had a stroke,
    the rust erased
    the life from the flesh.

    Now nurtured no longer neglected
    and maybe resurrected
    with a new skin and heart
    as FrankenD.

    "Dťesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    The Dťesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Dťesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    From the bush it was taken.


    spotted in Canberra overnight.

    Addo performed the cutting and separation ceremony. What a asset.

    Christo would be proud, art in Canberra




    Alas, one look at the spark plugs in Melbourne shows a plausible cause for the seizure...


    Never mind, carry on regardless....



    At least it is now under cover and in company befitting.

    Grubby little urchin that it is....



    Now sans engine. After its first tub in a very long time.



    That's the current state as of now.
    I'm having a tub myself.

    Here is another long gone ID safari that DS, Mrs UFO and I saw this past week.

    Tractionfan has claimed the wreck.

    I usually pour a beer out onto the caracass at this point Richo.
    Then I drink one.

    Yes, quite secure.
    Will not fall unless pushed.

    Cylinder head now removed.
    Very sad state of affairs internally. Cylinders and liners knackered, water pump manifold rotted away due to not being drained. Cylinder head similar. Used all cunning methods learned over the years to remove the water manifold without damage.

    From what I've read over the years, they'd restore that easily in UK. Mind you, they are welcome.
