Plans to resolve the site issues.

As pretty much all of you will have noticed the site nowadays has been running increasingly slower. After asking for some of you to provide feedback on what you are using to view the site and your experience it appears that no matter what Operating System, Web Browser, and connection type you are using the site is slow. over past 24 hours have used script on the site which shows me how well or badly the server itself is running.

Sad tale of "ROCKY"

I believe you Guys already know this one.? When Diahatsu first introduced the Fourtrak to the UK, they made a limited no. of special trucks, this came with a soft top and optional hard top, folding windscreen, and every part above the wastline removable to create a totally flat area from bonnet line up, like the original landy. Wide chrome 8 spokes, side steps, light guards, bull bar etc..... Well I've got one which I've had for about 16 years, was my workhorse towing a trailer, etc..
