Default Re: tell a Model A related story

My First A:The Staff Car.

I purchased this from a farmer who lives near Deniliquin which is 40 miles to the east of our town, Tocumwal. In New South Wales (NSW).

There is one commercial business between the towns. A pub at Blighty. (those Irish are pretty good at stealing our place names arenít they?). It is the community meeting place for local farmers and others. The pub always has a good and happy atmosphere. They were serving 120 meals each Friday night. Now thatís pretty good for a little farming community.

Now itís patronage has become so small the publican is considering closing. Why? Random Breath Testing. For no good reason it became a target of what is Highway Patrol (I call Highway men). They are the most despicable police in NSW. A police training school is located in Deniliquin and there are cops there with little to do. You know what that leads to donít you.

Well in the town of Deniliquin the locals are sick of them too. So they got even. Cops arrived at a popular hotel one evening for no good reason. When they departed by reversing out there was an awful crunch and scrape. The front axel was detached and laying on the ground just in front of the bumper bar. (a 4 wheel drive thus a straight through axel with a diff in between). Inspection found a chain around the axel and coupled to a power pole infront of where the vehicle was parked.

Not surprisingly they could not find a culprit but they did find a hotel full of jubilant drinkers.
