  1. The "In jail" scam.....

    I haven't met or heard of this one in Oz as yet. The tax ones have made it.
  2. Who did they copy...

    IIRC here oil is one of the things you DON'T put in your rubbish and recycling bins

    Mike Julie Bishop, the foreign minister
  4. South African Farmers

    Australia is playing cricket against South Africa and there has been an on-field kerfuffle. http://pickeringpost.com/story/howzat-/8140
  5. I found a picture of IHrunner on the WWW

    Extending from what the muzzle brake could do. Marks and Spencer is a big UK clothing chain. Years ago they were sued by a woman who claimed that sparks from their electrostatic knickers lit one of her f25ts with dire consequences. She won. Their defence seemed to miss that the right diet can produce phosphane and diphosphane for self igniters. I'm afraid that they didn't go into what was required for that diet.

    They had them before the takeover https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_City,_North_West
  8. Self defence IH Tractor

    Rick could be daring and different and build a trebuchet. I've got a reprint about such a project that could throw a piano or a Mini Minor car

    Relative to this thread - and other places http://pickeringpost.com/story/happy-st-patrick-s-day-but-ominous-clouds-ooze-doom-/8136
  10. Self defence IH Tractor

    They have had some practise. I have a reprint of a South African farm magazine article from the 1980's on farm suitable armoured people carriers. In Zim they used to use Nissan trucks with plated undersides and water filled tyres, steel seats with just carpet. Worked until the opposition started using 2 land mines instead of 1.

    Ripe for recolonising

    I don't have a link atm but the vote in parliament in favour of confiscation without compensation was something like 240-ish to 80--ish

    Brings to mind a Road and Track (IIRC) cartoon of a prairie state hill climb
  14. American Iron Vs Japanese Steel

    I'd guess the earlier Mustangs would have been able to use the Oz Falcon RHS steering box given their common derivation? I was told that the Ford conversion place in Gympie 3-d laser prints their front and dash assemblies for the ones they do now. In the 60's - 70's there was a Jeep assembly plant in Brisbane. So any state government departmental requirement for a 4 x 4 got a Jeep. And Jeeps were pretty close to a nasty word here. One government department was so fed up that they lined up the specs for Jeep and other available 4 x 4's. And if Jeep had it it wasn't required, if Jeep didn't it was. Didn't work too well but attrition did eventually.
  15. American Iron Vs Japanese Steel

    IIRC Scouts didn't make much of a mark in the Oz market
