RE: [GreenYes] Gas 'n guzzling
Oh right
I'm afraid we have them here too -they are used to ferry school children
mostly, in cities.  They also have 'bull bars' or kangaroo bars to protect
from, well the wild bulls and kangaroos in Notting Hill, Hampstead etc.
Here on Dartmoor there are actually a few farmers who haven't been
completely wiped out by BSE and foot and mouth disease and they drive in
battered old landrovers which actually do go off road.
