I do happen to own an angle grinder. Perhaps I should show Herman what I can do with it, on the beetle....

Have always know you have an grinder, what you not prepared to admit is using it on your toys .... :twisted:

You would not know either end of an Beetle, you being addicted to buses. :shock:

What I constantly see from your posts, is that ...

The poor modified bus that you always do long distance trips with is the only reliable bus to cart the trailer queens around all the time

BUT still not prepared to admit its the only way to have an reliable, usable bus, which is a joy to drive... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

We will get you to confess some day, and that will be one sweet day for the "GRINDER MAN" (sorry MARK)

No no no again!!!!

The poor modified bus does get used often, but after owning since I was 10 years old, I am very fond of it. It does also happen to be the most rotten one in the fleet and been resprayed many times, it will always be first choice in the rough environments. If you had joined for the many long distance trips to the KKK like I have, you will have seen I even drove my 1959 1100 bus there. :wink:

As for every other bus of mine, I’ve never transported on trailers. Every one gets used regularly and with quite some distance. Hell, just to work alone is a 100km a day, and I drive a bus virtually everyday. I don’t own a new car like you Herman. I can see you love your Renault :twisted:

Us guys from Cape Town are pioneers man. You will see myself, Christo and Paul only have kombis to drive everyday. We don’t own a plastic. :lol:
