Im really suprised to see that British Vehicles are leading the poll - with all those jeeps out there....although how many jeep owners have voted american when maybe they should have voted French ??

Any chance you could expand your poll to vehcile types....jeeps/landrover/gmc/dodge/bedford etc?????? - would be fascinating to know what the number one vehicle of choice is ?!?!

What do I own? listed below.

 

I was very proudly showing my business partner the Saracen and Ferret. He's an angler, when he said, "your mad, what do you want to own these for?" Simple answer "Beats sitting by a river with a stick in your hand"

 

(Apologies to all Anglers reading this)

Sitting here reading this thread,my wife shouts to me "what's making you laugh so much"

I then explained that when my dear old dad had one of "those" talks with me as a youngster he told me,

"Son, if ever you find yourself wanting down in the marriage tackle area :undecided: take heart. When others start boosting you can always move the conversation away by telling people all the toys you have, have had, or intent to get"

I never really unstood (at that time) what he meant but since have found out........,

I'm proud to say I am the owner of a pushbike :-):-):-):-)
