Dedicated to Mark Herbert, who died in a car accident on his way to the DKP Cruise night yesterday.

My thoughts are with his family and his friends. He once owned the socalled Super Shit Box (SSB) which was groundbreaking in both style and performance and propelled a new breed of cars: The Rat-Lookers. As the SSB fortunately is now in loving swiss hands, the ancestor of this breed will live on.
Thank you for the inspiration.

Today my cheers go out to Rainer and Adde for their offhanded and appreciated help to sort out the electrics on the bus and to get even the engine running.
As I got up this morning I hoped to get possibly the headlights in working order. But apparently, I teamed up with the pros!
The wrong cables were sorted out quite quickly as there was one major mistake with the starter connection. The rest was unexpectedly easy to convince and works fine now. The horn was the only thing to refuse the job due to ground problems which are about to be solved.
Having finished before time we looked at each other and agreed to buy a can of petrol and to try our luck. Big time!
If you want you may enjoy the short video of the resurrection: Heartbeat!
