The good old days

No questions on GCM, GVM, BALL WEIGHT or any other weight, WDH or rated shackles etc etc Not sure how many survived?

I think that has been here before.

The extras certainly was a comprehensive list of what you needed to tow a van back then. Not so much today. cry

Remember when the big car makers used to do a *taxi pack* for some models.

Isnt marketing just marvellous. We can now tow 3.5 tonne with a ute that doesnt weigh much more if at all, to that old Valiant.

The old VK Valiant. Good points there Fred, but as Clarky says this has been around for eons and I have a copy among my records. Certainly things have changed though! cheers

But look at the van behind the valiant, no comparison to many Behamoths of today.

 THere was no such thing in the 70's/80's, however in 1980 was first time that I started using a HR WDH.
