Looks like the SWB LR my dad uses to move his concrete mixers around on his construction sites.

Then there was THAT day in late 70s. I was driving down the street in 'old town' with my girlfriend when we saw three friends of mine on the right side. One was standing at the store front while the other two friends were on a motorcycle. Ever the daring (and reckless) one, I wanted to startle the three by veering towards them and scare them as I slammed on the brakes at the very last minute. Which I did .... except the ancient brake hose broke loose at my sudden and strong jab at the pedal! Thankfully, at this point the brakes have already scrubbed off sufficient momentum to what was now a graceful glide. Except it was still a glide. Somehow I don't recall why I didn't use the handbrake but nonetheless, the car rolled onto my two buddies on their bike and pinned them between the bumper and the curb of the storefront. The next thing I know I was busy flagging down cars to take one of the friends to the closest hospital. I was lucky that he was alright save for some bruising, a twisted leg, slightly burned from the exhaust and in need of a new pair of pants and shirt.

hello bdbx18, that was indeed a dangerous stunt! Have you ever driven along the old road from Ipoh to Kuala Kangsar? At speed?
