    That's one of the surprises I got during the visit to the USA last year.

    USA guy - "Nah, there's nothing around, all the old cars have gone"

    Kiwi guy "Shee-it, lookat all the old cars, man I wish we had projects like that back in New Zealand":eek:

    Hey Mitch, Happy Birthday and welcome to the 60 Club. I thought your first cut might have been to chop the roof!
