The Ford 150 and 250 trucks and Land Rover that we had on the fleet beat this Toyota hands down, it was a heap of rubbish.

I found the info about the Toyota very interesting, thanks Heinz.

Coincidentally came across one for sale at auction per this link...seems a lot of car for the money if the pre sale estimate is accurate.

There’s also some other interesting stuff in the same auction I think...

https://online.handh.co.uk/m/lot-details/index/catalog/119/lot/46157/?url=%2Fm%2Fview-auctions%2Fcatalog%2Fid%2F119%2F%3Fpage%3D3

Ok, for some reason the link hasn’t worked. It’s H and H auction, lot no 117, auction date 27 November 2019 at Buxton.

or you could have just added the "url" "/url" tags, but that would have posted a rather long link.

... and you could also have shortened the link. As a general rule if there is a "?" in the url you can remove it and anything after it, e.g.

online.handh.co.uk/m/lot-details/index/catalog/119/lot/46157/

A lot of that stuff is tracking information so you ought to take it out anyway.

Back to Toyota... smile

And even the idea of a Lamborghini SUV just makes me laugh!

Thanks both Graham and Ian, didn’t know about those tricks - usually I just copy the top box on the browser and paste it, first time I’ve had a problem.
