              cool thanks heaps for that! That was Dads first ever new truck brought new in Adelaide must be going on 40 years old now. Its called the Fierless Fowel because Dad didnt know what a Griffin was (Scanias emblem) he thought it was a chicken. We also had another few Scanias called "Super Chook" and "The Pullet" over the years.
              The Fierless Fowel was the first trusk to ever pull a double out of the Mount Fitton talc mine in SA also one of the first trucks to comercially pull doubles of double deck stock crates up and down the Birdsville and Strezleki track.
              (yeah kinda proud of my Dad but I'm sure just as much as most other people are of theirs)

                Nice effort. Sounds like he certainly deserved to be inducted into the hall of fame.

                            I just haven't got around to hanging it on the wall from when we moved house about 3 years ago.

                            You don't leave tools like that for the new owners. You bloody well take them with you!!! Haha.

                                Ive never done any kind of racing but i find it amazing that they let the quads race with the bikes, especially considering they would be fast on the flat stuff but slown in the whoops so you would be swapping with each other the whole time.
