Note to Jon in Bosnia - we bumped into the Pajero club and sent your
regards. I think they got clobbered by the police for being in the
wrong areas and we issued with summonses - I would be interested to
know what happened in the end.

Pajero Club nah never herd of em, sounds like a bunch of hooligans
pretending to be Toyota men :-D
Strange they had trouble if the local - and meticulous - JB was in charge.
But if it was a Big fella in a SWB with an even bigger Wolfhound, then I
would understand. Will keep you all posted on the consequences.
Pleased you all had a good time, and now you know the acheivement of my
little Paj careering round in the same conditions with water in its
headlights at the end of the day.
Cheers

'92 HZJ80 ex UN surplus in Bosnia - where I got stopped by the cops today,
cos they felt like it - one said to the other (after seeing my wacky number
plate) 'bloody hell you stopped a diplomat's car'. I said the usual -
'good day to you constabuille I trust you are well and you have caught your
quota of villains today' . And he replied 'diplomatksa OK', and saluted.
Lucky they did not see my illegal radar detector ! Bet that won't happen
on the Plain !

funny thing this, about being stopped for no particular reason at all -
this has happened to me on a number of occasions. I'm usually polite,
but I do wonder why they stop me. when i ask them why they stopped me,
"oh, we're just keeping an eye on things" and then make some lame excuse
about the headlamp being the wrong brightness, or the road tax sticker
is not suitably neoned and splashed over my windscreen for all and
sundry to see. Sometimes I think I might as well go AWOL just to give
them something to do....
they even positioned a 'copter over me recently, and tracked me all the
way through Bristol....now how nerdy is that? probably thought it was
stolen or something, or perhaps I was going just a little bit over the
speed limit...
Anyhow, being the proud owner of the only white LC in Bristol with a
snorkel, I do get checked out regularly by the coppers

OK Renate, but before Julian whips out his 'twit filter' this is a bit off
TLC topic, I am just guilty of adding odd postscripts to give the list some
'flavour' as Julian would prefer.
Naturally, my 80 is also white - UN white - though I don't fly their flag
as the flagpole socket was removed when it was refurbed. But most aid
agency vehicles are white which is supposed to make them 'neutral' if they
ever come into line-of-fire. But as in all former Socialist countries,
here the police hang-on to old customs. i.e. they stop you and you pay them
whatever they ask, request a receipt and they double the fee !!

Okay the topic is off-list a little - I hit reply before I realised it
would go to the entire list... sorry guys.
