    IIRC Mr Bean then rescues the number plates from his Mini, swaps them with an identical Mini in the car park and drives off.

    Great Videos!

    Yes, that abbot is flying!! Sounds nice at full chat
    Your Ferret Info Needed

    I'm in the process of compiling a updated Ferret Register. If I haven't already asked for your ferret details please could you email or PM me. Ideally I need Military Registrations and Hull numbers, but any info would be very helpful, MS numbers, disposal dates etc etc.

    Also, would anyone have any details of Ferrets which were scrapped? Range targets etc.

    Many Thanks

    Matt...

    I had two Ferrets.... My MK2/3 YFO822 (civilian Reg) was sold to a guy called Jack Lee who lives in Chico, north of San Francisco. It is now in the Sacramento Motor Museum.

    I registered it July 1996... still have copy of reg doc... shows chassis number as 2845 date into Service 1961.

    Here is a video of it in action around Bromsgrove... great vehicle.

    Hope this is of use to you.

    I'll try and find out more about my MK1

    Cheers

    I am assured that this is the Chieftain I once owned and is 11FD67 for the Chieftain spotters out there. Wish I still had it, but not the bills!

    Hi Paul

    Thanks for the information. That is a new one on the list Did you know the Military Registration number? I'm guessing going on the hull number it might be in the 01DC range.

    It's really flying in the Vid Great.

    Any info on the Mk 1 would be appreciated too.

    Cheers
