Working Rovers
« on: October 04, 2007, 01:34:55 PM »
While looking for some pictures of my new truck I realised most of them are of the truck working.
So I thought I'd start a Working Rovers Photo thread.






I know, that tyre could use a little air.

Hey Pete, nice pix !  What's in that truck for an engine?  My 2.25L petrol barely has the power to haul itself up a hill...nevermind a couple tons behind me on a trailer ! ! ! :omfg

Mike, it has a 2.25 just like yours. After you get yours running right it will be better.

Pete, my favourite part is that Jordie (sp?) is with you in every pic. That is awesome that you can include your dog day to day. You're really lucky!!!

Dang, A 2.25L can haul THAT load?! Wow.....Cool.  I hope it's OK, but I got a little drool on your truck when I was gawking @ it there on the Waterfront in Mahone Bay (or was it Lunenburg?.....whatever) and the MK II steering wheel from a Mini is a nice touch, hheh hheh

I go look at a (used) snowplow on Saturday for my beast....even though it's not yet mobile, it WILL be put to work at some point.
