Michele Pilia is a stunt man that can drive any car or truck on 2 wheels. This Italian has the Guinness World Record for the longest distance covered by a car driven on its side on two wheels - 371.06 km!
In this video he shows his skills behind the wheel of a Bedford CF. It's just amazing what he can do...

ebay: 1985 "BEDFORD BLUE" CF2 - UK

I have posted on this blog some mint CF's and I'm always surprised and pleased when an original like this pop's up. They do exist and this one can be yours! This CF2 has been kept in a garage for the last 18 years. It seems to be all original except the for the unusual but cool dual-tone paint job and tinted rear windows.
It has the stock 2.0 petrol engine and manual 5 speed gearbox.
A lot of bidders are on it right now but there's a reserve price, so we will see how this auction plays out.

"This auction is for a Bedford CF 2 van. I have owned this van for 18 years and it has always been kept in the garage during this time. Considering the age of the vehicle it is in very good condition and is a reliable vehicle. I am very sorry to be selling this van but it is now surplus to requirements and I am in need of the garage space. It has had 4 new tyres which are still have plenty of wear in them. The driver's seat is split and could do with some TLC. The paintwork is very good condition. It has halogen headlights. If you are looking for a classic van then I don't think you can go wrong with this one. A £200 deposit is required at the end of auction and the balance is to be paid in cash on collection of vehicle. Van just passed mot today no advisorys"
