In the winter Adam I I were messing around in the snow, he was in a A7 Box saloon, the most ungainly looking thing you have ever seen, I was in my 4wd WW2 Jeep. The Seven ran rings round the jeep in a field covered in deep snow. I was staggered!

hi
yes i can understand that as the 7 looks like it could not get out of its own way or be driven out of sight on a dark night with the lights off :lol: :lol:
but as i said 1 was driven to cape york when the track was 2 wheel marks through the bush and no ferries to cross the rivers with the usual crocodiles :twisted: the trip was done in the thirties the dorrigo one went in the last 20 years
