Whats the best part of a sheep then? A fillet?


It would be ok if the 200 quid was profit per unit!

Where? Can you give me an item number?

The £80 die-cast one looks like it is made by D'Agostini. and worth a tenner ;) To be charitable, it may be Autoart, they are expensive until they can't shift them, then they get discounted to a tenner too.

The Suzuki part number is 99000-79ND0-001 for yellow.

I have seen them as low as £60.

there is a plastic Suzuki one with no interior, that is a pull-back-and-let-go that is much cheaper. 99000-79NP0-001 is green

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Yeah, those £80 ones never interested me tbh. Far too much money for what it is. The one ive paid £173.00 delivered with no taxes as its from europe is a little stunner.

Considering there are only 999 made in that colour and RHD, they will probably be an investment in the long term.

The best lamb ive ever eaten was "saltmarsh lamb". It was heavenly! The farmers dont enjoy raising them tho apparently. It costs a fortune in water bills.

?????? There always drinking!! Thirsty sheep!!

The problem is that the supply chain takes its profit from the supplier not the consumer. This places severe strain on the ability to produce.
