    Yes they were a gem. My first was a 1949 sidevalve Morris minor. Same story, wish I still had it.

    I can imagine trying to control with the power. Would have been interesting. Off to the hardware to research materials tomorrow. I was going to use pvc pipe but box Alum. Tube might be the go. I will see.

    That little gem took us allover πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ I would just have problems getting down in one now!.
    Ok on the power pod on the LY - just tried for fun (as you do ) actually it works quite well on the front also , just more to fiddle with !. Its more fun & more of a challenge to keep it on three wheels in the right direction without power!!!.
    I love to see what you guys and people like jbkiwi are doing down under and in all the other "Heineken " places that the forum reaches !..
    By the way I am really enjoying sailing my "Slim Nip" with the high aspect sails especially in the light winds,
    CheersπŸ‘β›΅

    Agree. Rc cars in their controlled areas are getting more popular in the larger cities with competitions etc. In my area aircraft are getting very popular although with insurances and fees etc can be cost prohibitive.

    Have to get sailing again whether land or water, somehow.
