Oh well, these pics are from a couple of days ago. Playing silly buggers:

The wedging:

The questions that arise:
Is that what the tyre looks like from underneath,
How does the tranny leak all that oil?
Are those secret tailshafts?
Why is that tranny so clean?
Why is the sky blue?

The recovery:

These are the trip photos - Lithgow 0408

It's been urbanised here with the roof rack off and a set of Pirelli roadies.
