"...as there is no point in the thread then I will close it."
I asked a simple question, and I would have expected an explanation. You obviously felt there was a point to it, so why not tell me, instead of taking offence? If I upset you I apologise - it certainly wasn't my intention.
FE my point was to see other members points of view regarding what I consider inappropriate vehicles. Chris Ewbank for example thought a tractor unit for an articulated lorry would be appropriate for his personal transport. I could use a double decker bus to pick up my local paper if I wished to but I would expect someone to ask me for an explanation.
