Re: Any Opinions Good/Bad on this Tire?

Not only that be some folks insist on running higher tire pressures to make the tire 'stand up' which makes the (already small) footprint even smaller! On "military" tires, pressures should be kept to a minimum, rather than to a maximum. Cheers, TJ Not always so, remember that these are bias ply ti...

Re: Any Opinions Good/Bad on this Tire?

Because that 1 inch stripe is the only thing with constant contact with the road. The bars are hit and miss. Trust me, many, many years of racing and when I feel uncomfortable because of sliding it is bad! The problem is that they do not recover like a normal tire, there is just nothing there to gri...

Re: Getting ready to fight coronavirus

Guy, I thought they were threatening fines for people that violated the no work order? Or are you an exempt business? I had to go out to the vet yesterday and I was amazed at how many places are open after hearing all the doom and gloom from the governor about how NOTHING should be open but purely e...

Re: Any Opinions Good/Bad on this Tire?

I think these are better off road than the NDCC's but on road they all are pretty bad. Get a good rainstorm after a long dry spell and your butt will be clinched onto the seat cushion as you slide all over the road.

Fil, You remember that pile of crushed ones our mutual friend had. The same ones that mine came from. They were all mid eighties.

At least the missus is still smiling, or is that a painted on smile? And where is her mask?

In the wartime photo, what's that gizmo up on the windshield frame? it appears to have a largish cable of some kind coming out of it.

Re: Which A2's are the most sought after

I think they were made later than that for export. Late 80's I believe. I have seen dataplates with 85 on them. And that was US vehicles. They were all crushed.

Re: Which A2's are the most sought after

I am not so sure about that, would have to verify through Ken but I thought all of the 70's had that and it changed in early 71. Are you SURE you have a 70?

Re: Mr. Recovery's folding ruler

Well, I was in the SOUTH-east, Down in Surveyors area a lot and it was more swamp and gators than brush. We always had an extra man with a rifle to warn you about a gator in the water when you were standing in the middle of a swamp up to your chest in mud. Those guys loved to see how scared you were...

Re: looking for an A2

Ya know... That may be a heckuva feather in Guy's cap if someone built one up solely from his parts. Makes me wonder if he isn't planning on doing that himself. Cheers, TJ Yeah Guy, make complete Body/tubs !! :D Would you pre-pay 15-20 grand for a complete body if he were to commit to it? And that ...
