But I thought Triumphs were much older than that, after all, in the bible it says...'And the sound of Moses' Triumph was heard throughout the desert...'

I'll get me coat...

Sorry, John: That's a myth ... it was a simple error of translation:

It should read "the sound of Moses' Triumph was heard throughout dessert..."

The tale about Moses and his Triumph is not easy to find in the good book, as the Concordance is silent on the matter, but there is a clear reference to a different make of machine in 2 Kings 20.9:

Isaiah is asking '... shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?'

And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees...

I guess that the fuel available originally was not of good anti-knock property, and then improved, as the advice seems to have been successful. Could this have been the first recorded use of alcohol in the fuel, or was the USA exporting TEL as early as that?

Regards, Tim

No, Tim, it's a reference to Cliff Richard's original backing group and is their stage choreography instructions.

In the New International Version we find that Joshua's Triumph was heard throughout the land (josh 6:27). Any more biker prophets out there?

I see some nutter has fitted a turbo to one, now that I imagine will be heard throughout the land.
(or at least the scream when he sees his insurance quote).

I suspect Isaiah and Hezekiah were talking about the Vincent Black Shadow..?
