Salutations: .... A moments silence for a good ride gents. She served us well and passed quickly and without suffering the inevitable ignominy of the primer bomb and the rivet gun. .... Well - the decision was made for me this evening regarding fixing up my 9000.. I pulled off the curb not seeing a passing truck (just perfectly in the blind spot behind the pillar) and we torn off the entire front bumper assembly from the side. Still running just fine - just not all in the same direction at the same time as it broke off the forward clips and twisted same considerably.. Other than being mortified at myself - no injuries to report at all for anyone involved.. Felt like nothing more than a gentle nudge, but as it caught the bumper from behind and across to the right - it was entirely fatal for 9000 which ended up looking very much like a lopsided narwhal. Cheers to all with a special thanks to the good folks at Scania - mine was one of the good ones.. -- J Dexter - webmaster - http://www.dexterdyne.org/ all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in - RealAudio 8+ Required - all the Time Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Mississippi John Hurt - Frankie http://www.dexterdyne.org/888/197.RAM
