    Yep, that's it. Like the Moke, I don't think it was designed for economy.

Got back to the dealership and he had the painkilling tablets all ready for me.
    Lol! That bad huh? Chad have you had a chance to ever fire an Enfield bolt action or a Webley revolver? I always thought those were handsome firearms.

    I had a ghetto 1983 or 4 1.0l one once. Was close to the same size as my rzr.They were kinda cool in a way, had a divorced t-case so you could throw whatever 2wd engine/transmission combo in there relatively easy enough. I wanted to put a twin cam engine from a sidekick in it but that's as far as that dream went.Name:  11807213_1476406006010729_1932638396193108709_o.jpg

    Yes, at 15 I was in the ATC (Air Training Corps) we went from South London to somewhere in Surrey and we all shot Lee Enfield 303, real gun with live bullets, gun had attitude as for revolvers am unable to comment as it was highly illegal.

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!
    I'm afraid it wouldn't float my boat. Hideous.
