Your driving along see the gently steaming vehicle by the side of the road and you think "oh look its a commer"
Is there a cure?

Afraid not Rhino.  You're just stuck with it now.  Look upon this disease as some sort of benign symbiotic relationship.  It helps.  Roll Eyes

Mini's have enough problems with rust , let alone the 3rd dimension

Yup, but to bring us back slightly towards the topic, seemingly you can do alll sorts with a Mini, although I imagine that this one would not quite be up to the mark of the Monte Carlo and Italian Job cars in the handling department.........

I know - probably the same person that thought a roof tent for an AMC Gremlin would be a good idea.....

Having to pay all the repair bills of his gremlin (called AMC Pacer in France), the driver can't pay his rent so he needed an accomodation solution !  Grin

My final thoughts of 2003 on the topic, before heading off into the murk of New Year's Eve partying, is that a modern replacement needs to be something that is practically indestructible, even when faced with hordes of Panzers and Tiger tanks (real or imagined) near Falaise, and stands our from the crowd - like the Commer.   Ideally, it should have some military ancestors/connection to enable the future fitting of armaments with relative ease - like the Commer.   Well, here it seems to be - so, watch the f**k out - here comes the fully loaded Humvee....

You meant to say that the thread content may have become slightly obscure in places?Huh?   Anything related to a potential replacement for AZ's British, classic, indestructible Commer, which quadruples up as a load carrier, a luxury motorhome, a race vehicle and potent war-fighting machine.   Flexibility is the key to Air Power..........  Grin
