Laverne, here in France, no need to have a second spare wheel. It is very rare to die. For 40 years that I roll, I had to die only once!

Do you mean “pneu creve” - a punctured tyre!

Thierry,

It is always interesting to read your posts, but your translation app is giving some strange meanings which sometimes are quite amusingsmiling smiley

For example, To die = mourir

When, as David says, you probably mean "crevaison"

Don't worry, keep posting, we all know what you mean. thumbs up

I acgtuallhy find these "transmangled" posts quite philosophical, as I get older and experience time in the hospital. You only die once...

Agreed. My French language is not great, and I appreciate help from my friends and neighbours when I am in France. Better to be told than continue to struggle. I assume it works the other way round.
I think that the more participants we have from different countries, on forums such as this, the better. On-line translators make this more and more possible for those non-fluent in the language.

Exactly David,
I also laugh a lot when I have the translation of your messages spinning smiley sticking its tongue out.
I need a lot of interpretation to understand the meaning a few times.

It does become quite humorous at times

Although it is for a TF and not a TC, I am attaching photos of a very nicely made dual spare adapter that I bought at the Beaulieu Autojumble in the early 80s. It utilizes a unique knockoff which is attached to a threaded tube about 10 inches long. The spacer is machined from an aluminum casting, not a billet! Does anyone know if this accessory was a genuine factory offering?
As I have no need for it, I will be putting it on ebay in the next week or so.
