I bent my trackrod up there at christmas, and tore my anti-roll bar off its mountings...

yet those french bean tins seam to have walked it... :angry:

You cannot be thinking of the Gap road, it was closed to traffic at Christmas.

2CV's are quite simply brilliant offroad! You don't even need to fit them with 4wd to go offroad.

Anyone remember the Africar project - ended up in court for fraud but the car was superb.

Many moons ago - I'm guessing about 1990 ish - I entered a 2cv into a fairly big ( Midland based ) Offroad Club trial and surprised a jell of a lot of people by not coming last!! And that was before we beefed the suspension and fitted the knobblies to the front!

This vehicle then went on many green laning trips with us to wales and Warkwickshire and Wiltshire and always impressed.

It evenyually died after a long service of offroad fun but was still capable of driving itself onto the trailer that took it to the scrapyard even after a roll or two and a bent floorpan!

I remember the Africar, there was a four and six wheel version, first saw it on Blue Peter :blink: Remember these things were designed to move eggs, across fields in france without braking the eggs, which is more than can be said for LR halfshafts. :lol:

I thought that although the GAP was still legal, that some of the others, sarn helen, and the really muddy one ( is that the lane from hell?) were now not legal to drive?!!

Only northern end of Sarn Helen is under debate as it has dual status, rest is OK, albeit part of it under seasonal TRO. Lane from Hell is not really one you would describe as muddy so I think you are referring to the UCR further south, IIRC it's called Mad Lane. As a UCR this is still ok. LFH was a RUPP and unless BBNP decide to reclassify it, it is no go.

Cheers
