Well done Marvel man...
15" Beetle smoothie wheels and X plies!
Did you keep and use the front seats...I do hope so...

I only went to collect something from Birmingham to Leominster in my Audi quattro along the Worcester Bromyard road and found that the wind had left some challenging drifts across the road around Broadwas which I cut on the way there and recut on the way back...and I absolutely loved the traction of auto four wheel drive apart from 8.5" summer tyres...mad or what!
I nearly did not make it..a driver was stuck at the bottom of my road..30 metres from home!

It certainly was - we had 14' in 8 mins down our end !

Little nipper Sam has arrived, as has the splitty. Looking forward to your expert opinion when you get 5 mins.

Luckily the bus is tucked away in the garage hiding from the weather.

Cheers

Heswall was the heaviest snow I have seen for years! yes beetle smoothies and crossplies are super in heavy snow, cut straight through, yes have the seats still. Cheers. I think that Im going to be more likely to snow run now, as long as I get a good wash off the chassis.

We're in Lower Heswall - where was your pick up from ? Gutted I missed seeing Marvin out and about. If you get flashed and pulled over by a non police car in the next few weeks it's me :P

We're half way between the Vic and Sheldrakes. I'm sure I'll come up with some method of attracting your attention !

Mind you - there isn't another bus like yours knocking about these parts is there ? ......
