    That means another tea meeting with BoJo, it's getting a little tiresome now.:
    I'll see if I can exert a little influence.

    The vast majority of countries that were under British rule are much worse off now than when they were apart of the commonwealth, South Africa is a prime example of this. I could care less how un-PC that statement is, its the truth.

    No because the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, went on to thrive. Not so much in many other places unfortunately. That Moke reminds me of the world's nicest golf cart. Why do I want a new Suzuki Jimny now after seeing those pictures? lol

    I test drove a Suzuki Jimny about three years back for my shooting activities. First problem encountered when getting into the car, I closed the door and ended up in the passenger seat, no room. Upon driving it it was noisy and uncomfortable. I'm 6ft 1 inch 16.5 stone (231 ibs or 105 kg) Now I know how a whale would feel in a sardine can. I felt I was driving a kiddies bouncy castle. Got back to the dealership and he had the painkilling tablets all ready for me.

    Yes, that's the Slingshot. When it was introduced in 2014, a motorcycle license was required. That has been changing over time. I believe individual state laws vary on that one. 30 or more states allow a car license to operate one now. I know one person who owns two of them in my hometown, but he's a mechanic for the Polaris dealership.

    Looks like a horrible cycle and terrible car to me. I would say poor man's convertible, but they aren't exactly cheap!
