Was it the fooly sikpaj with the front end falling off?

or The Breadbox Doors with the Emu....

or the GQ Alternator...

or was it the ticking timebomb 80...

Did any people lose anything? I came home with an extra 2 Tinny holders.. one with a nice set of cans on the front....

I think the Paj was the most impressive....especially the big YES I heard when Greg got out of the car to survey the damage...

the breadbox might cost a bit, though the Insurance Company has approved it

I lost sleep - especially when an alarm started at 5am and went for an hour and a bit on Monday morning...it wouldn't have been too bad had it not been for the mix of Kahlua and milk and glasses of red wine that I had had the night before [God knows why and he's not telling me, just adding it to the list of x's against my name]

Ah, Maaaaaaaaa, see you are being your normal self. Any photos of the tartan blanket and donkey's straw hat this time? Sitting here amusing myself on the 'puter (while it's working) - can't go outside, can't see anything because of the dust storm that's come in from Mr Pesty's place. Supposed to be a cool change following - can't wait. Mungerannie has already reported the dust gone from there and cool enough not to have the a/c on. Bring it on. Noticed Callum has clothes on - must be a big boy now.

Hi Ruth

no pics of straw hats or tartan blankies, though Willie did take quite a nice pic of me on Saturday night even if he can't remember doing it...ahhahahaha...Callum is a big boy now and prefers to wear pants these days.

we seem to have got off lightly actually hearing about the Paj, just a broken radio aerial and wog pole. Have not looked at the exhaust yet though it seems to be noisy against the chassis at times.

Eric as a mechanic should be on top of the issues of the ticking 80 though.

I will check the number of tinnie holders though I couldn't lay claim to the pair of cans on one. ;-)
Cheers,

Paul, like the little old lady watching a young attractive guy for an hour, you could have turned away. I did try to limit the best viewing to the Murray Cod.....

Good to see you got home safely, sorry we didn't get to see you off because we enjoyed your company with Baz, Mick and families and Peter. At least you are close to counselling in Canberra mate.

Nothing lost and nothing gained here. No new dents in panels which is unsual for me. Pretty hard to beat the Paj carnage.

Besides the damage done, looks very lucky to have landed on the wheel. Imagine the front end hitting the dirt...............

non hightensile bolts holding front in. How does it happen, when a crowd is amassed and urging on the young combatant, they do silly things to impress the crowd... like jumping the car on rock hardbleep.

He actually rolled to that point, it started falling off about 20-50mtrs earlier. Lucky it didnt happen at 110k's hour or 2 earlier. he would be in a pine box as front would have dug in and fubared him totally..

You been to the joe bjelke peterson school of dodging a question? You still didnt answer the question. its a Boolean question, not asking for a debate.. its either Yes or No..

Mine was a simple 1/2 day off the road.. not a week+... Was also only a hunge$... not over a grand..

Also once the new batteries were in I could have driven home I think, since the alt gauge didnt drop at all in the klms I did, + havin the 2 others charged up as spares...

And yours is still in bits today :)~

Mine got me home.. Mine actually got me to work for the following weeks too. Yours is still in bits. Correct? (doubt I'll get an answer from ol' Joe BP)

Mines gettin me away this weekend, yours is still in bits.. how long after the event? (doubt I'll get an answer from ol' Joe BP again)

Going to answer the question you have been dodging?
Was yours off the road for longer than 1/2 a day? (I know I wont get an answer from ol' Joe BP)

Mine broke down from a non Nissan part failing...
yoursbleepitself with Genurine Yota parts falling apart...
mine was a $100 repair and 1 day.. Yours was how long and how much?

Motor was due for a rebuild? It's only got 300,000klms on it... Oh thats right, petrol yota donk.

Seams like the fumes have gotten yo your brain finaly . or you dont understand english . When you need to rebuild your engine , I will wait for the phonecall . O Eric ,. Any contacts , my disisal will cost me 10 k and only 1 year warranty.

My answer . No worries brucy , eric to the rescue once again , My mates can do it for 9.5k lol

Thats my point , my engine with a piston issue got me home . Your pesly Altinator , let you down , Now get the kleenex and give up.

I think 350 k out of a petrol motor is not bad , especialy when its been on gas all its life . Cost less to run than your desesal and had heaps more grunt . ok , lets say I rebuilt it twicw in the cars life, thats 700 k . it will have cost me 3 k , 1.5 each time , Still beats your 10 K AT 500,000 IF YOUR BOX GETS THERE .
