The Soplair was given to me for nothing which was a bonus considering some of the sides looked as if they hadn't been used. As for the Puck the dealers made sure everything was in tip top order. None of my friends have correctly guessed it's age yet.

Did you change yours since we last saw it?

Top speed is never my concern. Although I feel more confident at stopping with the disc conversion I really want to go over 60mph in Matilda.

It's as if it would be nice to have the lorry high/low switch, especially between 3rd and 4th.

Hi Al, great result on the Soplair. Did you get the puck from Automotive Leisure then?

Yes, Ive changed mine. I got another new troll 530 last December and now ive got this which I had from the factory in June.

I wont be towing it with a minor though.
world famous number plate is for sale when I get round to advertising it.

Dare I ask what you'll have by Pateley..? :lol:

Yes it's from AL. My other half is looking at getting a Troll 530GT in about a years time but this little thing is staying. It seems we may have to move to get the space we'll need. Looking at a double garage, good size car port and large level drive. An adjoining house would be useful...

Well my preparation for Pateley Bridge is in full swing. This will be placed in the rear window of my Eriba Puck... :lol:
