Chuck, great to hear it's turning out so well!

Johnny, we need to figure out a way to use our cars in the fermentation process or we may be disallowed the use of the thread!

Or, we use our midgets as transports to run some good ale to Richard in sunny, but thirsty, Spain! We'll have to get those floaties out you were going to use to drive to the states to ride in the Route 66 drive!


Men of our calibre should be able to get round that one Jim

Never mind the motion sickness Joel it's being hit by a breaching whale that I'm most worried about. Also would I have to fit green and red bulbs in head lights and fit a green Lucas lens in the driver side rear light unit (obviously for Richard it would be passenger side)?

Johnny

Jim Bravard,

you have a lot to answer for Cheers smileys with beer

Okay not a great technical forum from a mechanical point of view and an end of journey subject rather than a prior to driving, but a great excuse for a drive in a classic with a reward at the end (that is if the drive hasn't been reward in itself).

Please post your loosly related pictures as in these cold, windy, rainy snowy days to stay in any port in a storm.

All the best Johnny

You are obviously a very wise man Tim and just what this serious forum needs.

Would you mind regularly contributing your sage words as the forum soothsayer smileys with beer

On that note I am deeply troubled as I cannot fit this period beer crate into the boot of the midget, yet I find it fits perfectly in a Morris Minor. Obviously I like to go topless from time to time and the only way I can do this is if I leave my passenger stranded at the side of the road and put the beer crate on the passenger seat.

Please offer me your advice.

A grateful Johnny Warner

Ah, Johnny, you scoundrel! You did it, you started that thread! eye rolling smiley
As to your beer crate / passenger dilemma, that's simple! You need only install a luggage rack, of course, never intending to store luggage other than the drinkable type! smileys with beer

Jim this serious thread needs a technical adviser along with practical spiritual guidance from Tim.

It would be a great honour to the thread if you would take up the position.

Now back to the luggage rack could you offer more advice on this matter, along with lashing tips both for the rack and beer crate.
I would also be greatfull if anyone could offer advice on whether I would need to increase the pressure in the rear tyres for a fully ladden crate.

Many thanks Jim for supporting the forum

Kind regards Johnny cool smiley

A few Perfect Road to Brew pictures.
The first three are brewing a barley wine for soon to be one year old granddaughter Eleanor.
The fourth is either an alternative fuel option or a way to beat the revenuers, aka, guv'ment men!
Remembering top down drives and the last, toasting our habits: driving fun cars and celebrating said cars at the end of a run! smileys with beer

Lashing the rack on, simply a few of the usual nuts and bolts left off after the last project!winking smiley
As to the crate, a good stout rope will do the trick!
As to the tire pressure, depends on how big a straw and how fast you drink from it, as to needing to up your air pressure! cool smiley

Looking good Jim,
But you're stealing my thunder I've given you the top job in the technical department, now you want the head brewers job as well and I'd ear marked that one for myself LOL smiling smiley

Also when I saw photos had been attached, I immediately stopped considering doing the washing up and wrongly thought that I would find technical stuff on the luggage rack. Now not that I am complaining, but Mr Bravard, I am going to have to consult with Tim our soothsayer to find a few sage words, on the subject of leaving a job half done. Can you imagine the havoc that could be caused, by an untrained novice, attaching luggage rack and beer crate, without appropriate guidance, from a qualified expert. Now I don't like using the S word but we do take Health & Safety seriously on this forum.

Why it would be tantamount to me jumping from beer crates to barley wine and strong ale for no rhyme or reason.

Regards Johnny

Jim,

I most humbly apologise as it seems that you had not forgotten to finish the previous job.
However, in future would you mind getting the job order into the correct order to avoid any future confusion.

Photos would be useful though as I am a visual learner. Also what knots would you recommend with the stout rope? I do like the figure of eight and bowline but am unsure if these are appropriate.

Johnny

Apologies if some of this gobbledygook doesn't make a whole lot of sense, as for the past three weekends, I have been digging up sewer line and may be affected by some heady fumes, but not of the brewing type!
But you know the old saying, on the tying knots level, keep it simple! smiling smiley

Let us pray ,,,,,,,,,,, The Beer Prayer ,,,,,,,, author unknown

Our lager,
Which art in barrels,
Hallowed be thy drink.
Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk,
at home as in the tavern.

Gives us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillages,
as we forgive those who spill against us,
and lead us not to incarceration,
But deliver us from hangovers,

For thine is the beer,
The bitter and the Lager.
Forever and ever

Tim I knew you were the man for wise words and our spiritual guidance

Jim apology fully accept.
Also as to the advice I do simple very well being of that disposition.
A word of advice on the brewing and sewer front; do take care not to confuse the two or those bottles of slow maturing barleywines might be opened with disastrous and appalling consequences.
Sorry Tim I hope that I wasn't eroding the differentials of our two posts there.

Kind regards Johnny

Too many beers and this is what happens. Morris Minor bonnet gets used on MG...I'll drink to that. Too many beers cause loose knees also.

I slit beer can down the middle and clamped it on my float bowl as a heat shield. It was necessary to drink the beer first

I am sure it was a very fine beer as well Phillip.
After all I know you would only use quality materials.

Talking of which we need a Resource Advisor on the brewing thread are you up for the post?

And look at the fine weather I find myself enjoying now that hurricane Erik has taken his leave smiling smiley

Johnny

Sound advice Phillip,

I knew it was a good move making you our Resources Advisor.

Whilst your advice is invaluable, I will have to pass comment over to Tim our spiritual adviser and soothsayer to comment on the ceremony at the bottom of your post.

Many thanks for taking this forum so seriously

Kind regards Johnny Warner
