    Re: Gas and paraffin lights

    I also dug up two gas lights recently. I couldn't throw them out. Too many memories. I'm way too sentimental and bit of a hoarder, I know.

    Re: Amarok tailgate lock

    At some stage I will need to replace this one too. Central locking has long ago decided to also ignore the tailgate.
