    Love it Mikey, quality as always :)

    No one ever wins. No one finally loses, except the dead. Under the sun they rot together with absolute biological equality.

    Thank you for the lovely comments I had a feeling the equipment was of a good brand and it was quite old

    [QUOTE=Hugh Jorgan;346929Because of the Farfisa, Selmer, Hammond, WEM and the Carlsboro Amp these are good quality equipment and not your bog-standard will-do equipment.[/QUOTE]

    The Nightclub Clientele in the late 60's and the 70's were a very demanding audience and if you wanted repeat bookings at the better paying venues, then your Group's equipment needed to pass muster. The above equipment was not only well made; but there was stacks of it for sale in the local music outlets and it stood up well to the rigours of being bounced about in the back of whatever van you had managed to purloin for the weekend!

    [QUOTE=Ferox;348360 The cars look awesome also :)[/QUOTE]

    Strange how peoples attitudes change. In the '60's/'70's nobody wanted these big Rovers when they were getting a bit run down and the Chevy V8 engined versions only became sort after, so one could get the engine to put into a Land Rover. Re-engined both a short and a long wheelbase ex Mil 24 Volt FFR vehicle with Chevy engines in 1972. Got rid in 1984 after four trips to the Atlas Mountains and a six week trip along the fringes of the Sahara in the long wheelbase vehicle. On our first trip we were befriended by a Berber village Chieftain and I an still in communication with his family to this day.

    Sadly I heard the cars were all dragged out of the trees and not in a kindly fashion either and taken away
