paddock bashing OH

I think most of us can relate to trying to kill an OH at some stage of our lives. My 2nd car (HG sedan)ended up on the farm as a paddock basher / roo & fox spotlighting vehicle for a few years before it was sold very cheaply as a demolition car and destroyed at the Newcastle speedway. (We never did kill the 186). The HK in the clip (link below) sure takes one hell of a pounding.
but, to be fair, some friends at Fishermans Reach here on the Mid north coast tried to kill an EL ford falcon earlier this year and I was very surprised at the punishment it took before the motor finally gave up. I thought the suspension would give up first but no, it hung in there. I waas surprised at how robust some newer cars are!

My grandparents HG that was bought by them new, Sold to my Auntie, when they stopped driving, Rolled by my cousin, Still driven for years after, with barely a straight panel on it, then sent to the cousins foarm for all the great grand kids to learn to drive in, spent a few years there as a paddock basher, then was re rego'd for a while when someone needed a car, had a head on with a Jap car late one night on a country road, broke a headlight and bent bumper only, whilst Jap car had to be towed, then it went back to paddock duties, and to this day still resides on the farm, i reckon it would still run to, it now sits in a shed next to a HT prem, one of the cousins kids bought at some stage,

Will there be any fuel in 25 years time is the question how many days supply of fuel is supposedly in the country? A pretty piss poor effort of every politician the country has had in the last 50 years.

Hiding rust under body filler isn't actually repairing the car. Even harder to catch out bogmen these days as filler has metal fibres in it.

can handle that type of punishment they're pretty tough apparently!...:)
