He is though not active but the Deli is still going, Mark sold it to a club member from Newbury who then sold it to another club member Stonehenge way who has just sold it again.
Bazza Very Happy

Mark AKA: strangerover is indeed a lifemember on here, though hasn't been on in a while.

He did buy another Deli after getting back from China.

That article does bring back memories, as I remember going down Houndkirk Road to check for the best locations to do photos, before the Magazine folk went to do their stuff.

There is an article on here about mark doing the Airlocking diff, though the Photobucket muckup has removed the photos:- http://www.MDOCUK.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=16874

The club has also had a few club trips down Houndkirk Road and it is still as much fun to do, whichever direction you travel it in.

The first part of this video shows Houndkirk Road, though you will have to play your own music, as it wouldn't let me upload the video with the soundtrack †Crying or Very sad https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9w6JCtWBQ0

Certainly brought back some memories for me too! It was Redneck he bought the rock sliders from IIRC. Interesting...

Indeed he did.

Then he had some heavy duty ones made and I bought the ones Redneck made and put them on the Yorkshire Warrior.  Very Happy

I bought Rednecks wheels off his Deli,the sticky out ones, Artic Foxes tow bar mounted spare wheel holder, light bar of a member in Ealing,curtains off a member down by you Rusty etc etc.
Where did they all go, did they become sensible after selling them,or like Rusty become less sensible and buy a Landy.😀

9 years on and my 1991 L300 is still going strong. I'll tempt providence and say it has never missed a beat! (Unless flat battery due to dead alternator counts!)
