I borrowed the "Sweet" from Dave's Farm (Thanks Dave). I hope he's not gonna sue me :oD

Opening container with my DS break in Poti
The container was opened and my DS break appeared in good condition, but he
didn't want to start and was blocking another car that was behind him. Not
starting meant that the hydraulic system could not lift the car up and
lifting it up manually and pushing it out did not work. Fortunately Goga
found that the problem was with the rotor and he managed to fix it.

parked in 1934. I was acquired in the early 1960's for restoration. The
