So Anzel's "Firetruck" has arrived bought sight unseen from a dealer in Worcester and it is even better than the photo's we saw.

That being said like any 10 year old vehicle there are some issues which we will slowly sort out. And some very quickly.

The first thing will be to get it running so that it can leave Tinus's behind in a cloud of black smoke so tomorrow it goes to Viper for it's truck exhaust and then on Friday Michael to make some mods and get it running nicely.

Thanks to Dawid V who is delivering parts on short notice, Michael who is making time at this busy time of the year and Tinus who can find anything for nothing and give advice anytime day or night.

Very Very Nice! Love the color, Did it come with the security in it, or is the dog an optional extra???

She is just letting it be known that the back is no place for a 12 year old lady and claimed the passenger seat.
