As all LT owners know, great though these old vans are, they’re not exactly quick off the mark. I thought I’d see if I could do anything about that, so a couple of weeks ago I had a word with a mate of mine who works for Roscosmos, the Russian space agency and who sometimes manages to smuggle the odd thing out in his lunch box.
Imagine my surprise when, staggering home from a day out at the pub this evening, I saw this driving slowly up towards my house.
Unfortunately, it turned out that this particular delivery was a new fermenting tank for the Moss Side brewery just down the road. All my mate Yuri managed to get me was a novelty pencil sharpener in the shape of Valdimir Putin.
