Thread: Has anyone else on here got a Daimler Ferret?

    Default Has anyone else on here got a Daimler Ferret?

    I think the Daimler Ferret has got to be one of the best Armoured Military Vehicles you could own.



    I've owned mine for over a year and it's never missed a beat, great fun to drive and a real head turner at shows and petrol stations!

    Has anyone got any hints and tips on looking after Ferrets

    Regards

    Default Ferrets

    We always handled our ferrets as much as possible and never over fed them

    Don't let Polecat Paul hear this talk of ferrets.
    It was boasted that the new National Socialist Empire founded Jan 30, 1933, would last a thousand years. In fact it lasted a mere twelve years, four months and five days.

    I think so :? But I've never been brave enougth to try it!
    I guess it would only be the same as the one on the other side with the spare wheel.
    I don't think I would be able to fit through it anyway, I nearly got stuck in the front hatch once :oops: ( too tall, not too fat!!)

    Default Ferrets

    I have a Ferret, a Mk 2/3. I recued it from a paintball place cheap because the 'gearbox was broken'. I put some oil in the fluid flywheel (!) and drove it around the same day. I rented it back to the paintball site for a few sessions (me driving) and ended up charging them more than I paid them for it. So far as information, there is a Ferret owners website and a site in Australia - DGA - has published all of the now defunct Ferret owners Club newsletters. Sorry, don't know how to include 'click on' references but a search should find them.

    Hello
    I used to go on the Ferret owners forum ( www.ferretsccoutcar.info/html), it was very useful but all of a sudden it went off. Since then, all I get when I try to access it is -BAD GATEWAY.... Blah blah blah.
    So I don't know what happened to it. :?
