@Crusty181 seeing as this thread has gone way way off topic to save it from being archived while we wait for the monster truck's arrival, this is the van I was trying to bring home as carry on from Shanghai with a new outboard, however it wouldn't fit in the overhead locker (not even in business class)

..... In 40 yrs time @Crusty181 I won't give a ...$%&....hoot ??...I'll be 105 but true The Ute will be worth a pile, it won't be electric and being maintained contrary to manufacturers specs and never going to a dealer it will more than likely still be running..... Warranty the guaranteed way of keeping dealers in profit and your vehicle off the road.......

If I had no taste or pride and was happy with any old off the shelf mass produced $hi box served up, maybe I'd have some over rated underperforming pretender by now, thats true, but I have more self respect than that. In the tradition of true motoring art much like McLaren, Caterham, Lamborghini, Bolwell (owned by my brother) or AC Shelby Cobra (owned by my bestie) Ill patiently and silently wait because that's what true gentleman do. You see, some peasants will settle for anything, often tainted in their shallow desires by the bright lights of pretty girls and persuasive advertising. They say some fools will buy anything you put in front of the them, easily parted with their cash so long as a pretty girl is in the picture. My vehicle is being lovingly massaged into life by ancient Japanese Shinto Warriors, who can not only birth motoring glory but also snap your neck in a phone call.

Back to the zen prayer mat, speak soon.

@Crusty181, Worked with a guy by name of Craig, he had a Bolwell, I think he was involved in building them. Could he be your brother?

Knew a guy who bought a Goggomobile brand new, took it down to the pub. Many hours later he came out and no goggomobile in sight anywhere.
4 guys cameout before him, lifted it up and put it in back of the milk truck with the empty milk cans. Quite a proceedure for the rest of the drunks to get it on the ground again!!
